Amazing Nepal flavors and many variety of food choices on the menu to pick from. From light appetizers to full delicious meals, great to stop in and enjoy for lunch or dinner.

Went twice in two weeks while passing through Glenwood. Not sure where the owners are from but very West Coast Mx style, with lots of seafood and grilled meats. Carnitas was awesome, carne asada too. Real good pico, and pretty sure the corn tortillas were...More

Food was good, that's my only compliment. Bad parking, dirty tables, my food was not prepared the way I ordered, chips and salsa cost money, no free refills on soda. I've never been to a Mexican restaurant that did not refill a soda.

I have only ever gotten tacos here, but they're great. The tortillas are handmade and when you get your tacos, you can top them off at the salsa bar with limes, onions, cilantro, radishes, and any of six different salsas.

The tacos are excellent, but not cheap. There is a great salsa bar with onions, cilantro, limes, and a bunch of different kinds of salsa. You order at the counter and they bring it to you at your table.

Stopped here for lunch on our way to Aspen. Couldn't be more pleased. Carnitas were great, lots of fixings at the taco bar, clean restrooms, nice servers - all at very reasonable prices.

El Nopal is an unassuming little place in a strip mall outside of the historic part of Glenwood Springs, on the way to Carbondale. Open the door and the interior is simply decorated with Mexican style painted tables and chairs. You order at the counter...More

Just like a typical Taqueria in Mexico - meats were tasty - condiments for tacos were a bit disappointing - cabbage not shredded by very finely chopped making it mushy. Sauces for tacos average. Family was very friendly, service was OK. Adequate for a quick...More
