“Excellent and authentic food”
Reviewed 22 May 2013

This casual family place in a small shopping center is outstanding, with tortillas freshly made on site. Order at the counter in the rear from the menus posted behind the cashier, pay, find a place to sit and they bring your food to your table. Visit the salsa bar for several delicious and some hot, homemade types. Each day they have a special, such as on Sunday, carne asana, Thursday chili rellanos & that makes deciding easier. An extensive menu of seafood, chicken and beef dishes with beer available. Always packed so you know it is really good food.

“Mexican restaurant find!”
Reviewed 11 March 2013

Found this small Mexican restaurant in a strip mall near our hotel. Enjoyed the tacos and quesadilla. Chicken had a nice flavor and the corn tortillas were very fresh. Reasonably priced, nice atmosphere..felt like we could have been in Mexico. Definitely will come back!

“Wish they were by where we live.”
Reviewed 4 March 2013

Taqueria El Nopal
We ate in several Mexican restaurants while out in Colorado but none of them came close to being as good as their food. We stopped in for lunch one afternoon and just loved our meals. The service was excellent, the restaurant bright and clean and the price surprisingly inexpensive. Several locals recommended this place and now after eating there I know why. I loved that the food wasn’t buried under a mountain of sour cream and guacamole. Their food is excellent without anything covering it up. The next time we’re in Glenwood this will be where we will be eating.

“Always good”
Reviewed 10 October 2012

Normally I have a Torta with different types of meat (chicken is to die for), but I have started trying a lot of different items on the menu. The tacos are awesome and you get to put your own toppings on them. My favorite thing about this little hole in the wall is the horchata. Homemade you can tell
