I give it 5 out of 5 stars!!! 1/13/2011

This place is awesome. I have been eating at this restaurant since I was in high school ten years ago and the food is always great. It has never been expensive either. It is definitely the type of place where they remember you, and always say hello. more

Need to clean 3/5/2009

Not the cleanest place more

never dissatisfied! 11/30/2007

my family and I love eating at La Napolera and go there whenever we get the chance. the food is great and the price is always within budget. have and will continue to recommend this resturaunt to my friends and family and anyone else i meet for that matter. i must say one thing though and that is that in my opinion the Atlantic Blvd and New Phillips Hwy locations are much better food and ambience wise. :) more

Avoid at all costs 8/22/2007

This place is definitely over-rated by people with ignorant conceptions of what good mexican food should be like. The food is bland and tastes canned and/or not fresh. Both the steak and chicken were over cooked, rubbery, and dry. The tortillas were flavorless, dry, and crumbled easy. It reminds me of public elementary school cafeteria food from the 80s. Pros: None. For the same money you can get better mexican food almost anywhere else. Cons: Food is terrible, the place is kinda dirty and trashy, service isn't very fast. more

If you liked chewing copy paper and glue as a kid, you will love this place 8/13/2007

We passed up on going to one of our favorite Mexican places and instead went to the new location on Phillips and Baymeadows. Our first and last visit. Very noisey. Below average service. And food that had no flavor or texture beyond that of copy paper soaked in Elmer's glue to make paper mache whatevers. I have no idea why this gets more than one star. I would give less if possible Cons: everything more

Closest to Mexico that you will find in Jacksonville! 12/27/2006

Fantastic Food, Great service, a very authentic mexican feel. The best thing of all is that there is one opening up right next to us on Baymedows and Phillips! I highly recommend any of La Napolera's! Pros: Fast Service, Great Food more

Not the Best Mexican I've had but also not the Worst. 9/16/2006

The food is usually pretty good when I go, but don't order the broiled fish/shrimp. They cook it until it is all shriveled up & dry. Also, they menu doesn't have enough seafood offerings. Pros: The food is relatively cheap. Cons: Always very crowded, the restaurant feels/looks dirty. more

Best Mexican food in Jacksonville 9/11/2006

I'm not sure what La Nap's you people eat at but the one on Beach Blvd. is the best. They do not add 20% on your bill and if they did it would be worth it. They will make you anything you want . Never had a wrong order (EVER). The staff is friendly and efficient. They are the best Mexican restaurant I have found since leaving California. more

I'm with poster ckbigel,food not all that. 3/24/2006

I moved to jax from chicago two years ago since then I 've being looking for nice mexican restaurant,after trying so many finally try la napolera no difference from any other here in jax. I love burritos but I mean burritos not what la napolera serves,burritos you should be able to grab it and eat it,not a tortilla with meat swimming in some sauce that couldn't be grabbed.Chicago they really do some awesome mexican foods and they have lots of places where you place orders to go only and the cook it and make right in front of you while you watching,waiting. go out to the west coast or midwest and compare to la napolera then you will say tacobell makes better food than napolera here in jax. Cons: not really authentic more

Okay food compared to Taco Bell... 2/26/2006

If you've never eaten mexican food any where outside of Florida, then I guess you could say it's the best. But the best compared to what...Taco Bell??? The food is a mediocre attempt at ""authentic"" mexican food. It is pre-made and don't ask to omit anything in the dis because you will still get the exact menu item. 2 of our 4 orders were incorrect and 1 was forgotten. Stay away from their attempt at ""Fried Ice Cream""...HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT! Do not bother to leave a tip on the table unless you are prepared to pay your bill in cash as they apparently add a whopping 20% tip to your credit card charge, no matter what you put on the receipt. 20%??? They're not THAT good! For real mexican food in the U.S you need to fly to Texas, New Mexico, or California, then come back and review La Nopolera. Cons: Pre-Made food, Cannot omit items, Automatic 20% tip?!?! more

Great Food 6/25/2004

If you like it hot.....They can make you HOT, and if you don't like it hot, well, they can actually cater to people who love mexican, but it doesn't love them, if you know what I mean... great food. Love the taco's & their cheese dip....good stuff! Pros: great service, fast service, reasonable Cons: , parking more

Best Mexican Bar NONE! 5/22/2004

My best friend has been going to La Nop since it opened 20??? some years ago! Glad to see it getting the accolades they so richly deserve. I have been enjoying the delicious, authentic food, really great service & all around good times for such a long time that I feel like part of the family. They treat everyone like this is their home that you have come to visit & they want you to get what you came for: great authentic Mexican food! Pros: great food, atmosphere, inexpensive more

The Best 5/19/2004

There is no better than La Nopelera...everyone we invite ends up permanent and loyal customers. The food is great, cheap and with 32oz Dos Equis or Mich Lite on tap for less than $3, who can beat it? Pros: Cheap Food, Cheap Drinks, All Outstanding more

Great Food 5/19/2004

I have been a loyal customer of the La Napolera on Atlantic Blvd for years. The food is the best Mexican I have tasted in Jax. Ole's, also on Atlantic, is a close second, but I think La Napolera tops them all. Muy Bueno! Pros: Food, inexpensive, fast service Cons: , location, small building more

Pros: inexpensive, awesome food, great staff more

LaNops 2/7/2003

This is a great place to eat, and definitely belongs on the 'best of cheap eats' list for Jax. The cuisine is authentic Mexican. The portions are large, and all meals include all the chips and salsa you can eat while you wait for your meal - Bonus! Great for groups too. The prices are cheap, the food is good and there's plenty of it. What more could you ask for? See you at LaNops! more

Mighty Mexican has no small flavor! 1/29/2003

We have tried many so-called Mexican resturants in the Jacksonville area. None compare with the authentic style and taste of La Napolera. The ""Frajita Nacho"" is surberb. We have enjoyed every dish tried and introduced many of our friends to this special place. Service is always good and friendly. The food is a constant delight. We applaud the choice of this fine establishment. Pros: excellent menu, good service, wonderful location Cons: needs better parking, may have an hour's wa more

Best mexican ever! 1/10/2003

LA Napolera is my favorite mexican resturant! I love it. No other similar resturants even come close! Pros: Food delicious, price cheap Cons: parking limited, can be crowded more

Great little Mexican restaurant 1/10/2003

This restaurant has a wondrful atmosphere, great food, and everybody is extremely attentive. The wait time is always kept very minimal and that is much appreciated. Pros: Inexpensive, great atmosphere, Authentic Mexican Cons: Nowhere to expand, the business. more

THE BEST OF THE BEST 10/29/2002

THIS PLACE IS CLEARLY THE BEST I HAVE EVER ATE AT. A MOM AND POP TYPE PLACE, FRIENDLY PEOPLE, LARGE PORTIONS, AND EVERYTHING ON THR MENU IS GREAT! IF YOU LIKE AUTH. MEXICAN CUSINE, THIS PLACE IS A MUST! YOU WILL NEVER GO TO ANY OTHER MEXICAN RESTURANT AFTER YOU EAT HERE. ALL OTHER PLACES JUST DON'T COMPARE. TRY IT, YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED. Pros: FOOD QUALITY, PRICE, PORTIONS Cons: LONG LINES SOMTIMES more
