In June of 1988 Jose and Wendy Gonzalez began El Nopal (the Cactus) on Main Street in Everson, Washington.  After many successful years there, they transferred their main location to Sumas, Washington, to better serve their Canadian patrons.  In 2008, after much deliberation, they expanded, opening their second home here in Ferndale.  Although this second location is smaller, it is homely, and keeps the family atmosphere that Jose and Wendy strive for.  With their strong community base and delicious, home cooked Mexican meals, they continue to fill the stomachs of all who enter here.
