Excellent food. Professional and attentive service. Great drinks. And the prices are so reasonable. Noise level is unpleasant when restaurant is full. Maybe some sound engineering consultation would help. This is our favorite restaurant in Lincoln!

Ever since a recent trip to Tulum, Mexico, I've been on the lookout for authentic, flavorful, fresh Mexican cuisine. Lo and behold, I finally found it at Copal. This is not your run of the mill Mexican restaurant. Creative menu, vegetarian and even vegan options--but...More

This is not your typical Mexican restaurant where food is slopped on a plate. The food is fresh, unique and delicious with a great presentation. Margs are also amazing. Great, knowledgeable servers make the experience even better and the owner stops by and makes us...More
