“Great little place”

El Nopalito Restaurant

Cuisines: Mexican
Restaurant details
Reviewed 3 September 2013

Encinitas has a plethora of really good little Mexican restaurants and this is one of them. I had a carnitas burrito which was very good and as much as I could have eaten and it was $4.75 or so.
They have a salsa bar which has spicy carrots which are a great addition to Mexican food.

Being Mexican I can definitely say this is REAL authentic mexican food and you will know because it's full o mexicans. The place isn't fancy and sometimes the service can be slow but it's worth the wait the food is very very delicious and the offer trays to go.

Great Mexican food. They also cater and do an amazing job. Not in a "designer" location, authentic and we love it!

Great informal & excellent Mexican, made with the most fresh ingredients~I love the chile relleno, and my son always goes for the over-stuffed chicken burrito. Make sure you pick up some home-made guacamole & El Nopalito brand salsa. Home-made tamales in the packaged bags are the best way to have an impromptu FIESTA! Chips & salsa-and have a cerveza while you wait!
