“getting back up to speed”
Reviewed 12 February 2014 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

Our dining with daughter and granddaughter was top notch after a disappointing level of service a couple weeks earlier. Food and drinks were up to their pre-fire level and portions were as ample as ever. Service this visit was quite good and more like the very good service pre-fire. To the owner's credit or some ones the lousy service issue that I pointed out on the earlier visit was rectified! Our favorite Mexican restaurant in town and expect good service and if you don't get it let the owner or manager on duty know. It is a kid friendly place and we have taken our five 3-year-old and younger grandchildren there with no problem. But, you can have a nice quiet couples dinner as well. If you haven't tried, I recommend you do.

“It will fill you up. Kind of same old same old.”
Reviewed 20 January 2014

Good basic Mexican food. Nothing special. Plenty to eat, clean, and fast. Just nothing to write home about.

“Best in town”
Reviewed 18 December 2013 via mobile

LaNopalera opened a few weeks ago after a fire. Everyone waited a very long time for the reopening. The time was well worth the wait! The restaurant is beautiful with an open concept. The bar is marble and the walls are a light yellow. A busy hum was going all the time with an efficient wait staff. Many of the customers were greeted by first name and with hugs. The food was excellent and prices were reasonable. This should be rated tops in Beaufort for food, cleanliness, value, quantity, and service....don't miss out!!!!

“Yes, they are back!”
Reviewed 8 December 2013

My husband and I went there on a Thursday evening, and they were hopping! We had dinner at the bar, where it was a little less busy. This restaurant is known for its outstanding service and excellent food, and they did not disappoint. My husband had the ribeye with Parmesian sauce and I had to have tamales! This is by far the best Mexican restaurant in Beaufort, can't beat the service, food, and prices.
