You are guaranteed an awful experience if you come to this dive. (specifically the Nopalito on Business 35). This place is cheap...they have a busted speaker on the drive-thru board....so you have to order at the window. Nopalito has had years to repair this, but they don't care enough about their customers or employees to do so.
The food is passable and inexpensive...probably up to the standards of their target audience. But for everyone else, lower your standards or go elsewhere.

This place is just delicious! And the service is awesome! Prices are also fair. Love their rice! And the breakfast tacos are the best! Have yet to had a bad experience here.

Typical south Texas Mexican food restaurant. Service was quick, just not very friendly. Breakfast tacos tasted good, and their quality is consistantly good.

good food with a wide range of choices. laid back but friendly service. we have had breakfast here several times and enjoyed the food which is what made us go for dinner on this trip. margarita was better than expected. portions of food are plenty, especially for the price. nothing fancy, but clean. not a place for date night, but an excellent spot to get a fix for tex mex. we will be back

We went here because it was rated very highly, but our experience was AWFUL!! We walked in and the servers were all sitting at a table and just pointed for us to sit somewhere. The service was slow and the food was awful! This place should be at the bottom of the list!!!
