Food was excellent. Highly recommend the fajitas. The margaritas were a little "commercial" and by that I mean tastes like it was made with a bottled mix. The flour tortillas are handmade, hit, and super delicious. Flan was ok and a bit pricey at $9 each. We would eat here again.

Ninfa's is a terrific stop for wonderful TexMex food and service. You can watch the tortillas being made. The atmosphere is quaint and lively.

The original Ninfa's on Navigation is still excellent. Great food and wonderful service. Still number one for Mexican food. If you like Mexican you must go.

Everything tasted great, but 14$ for One taco seems crazy. My diablo shrimp tasted great but had 2 shrimps for 19$

We love Ninfas. I read a recent review stating Ninfa's had "ruined" their fajitas so we had to go and see for ourselves. We ordered the combo fajitas for two... and Ninfa's, what have you done? You had amazing fajitas, and now you've ruined them. Now they taste like lighter fluid. We spoke to a manager and she said now... More

It is one of the more authentic Mexican restaurants in town. Their Margaritas are good, as well as their Aguas Frescas, I loved the Tamarindo one. Tortilla soup is tasty and spicy, the tortillas are made in front of you so they are very fresh. Portions are huge! Desserts size is for 4 persons not for one!

Ninfa's was hopping on Saturday night. Our reservation was for 9:15 but they easily slid us in earlier. The food was amazing. We really loved the fresh tortillas wrapped around savory meat. I had the carnitas enchiladas which were ok. My partner had the fajitas which we both thought were better than the enchiladas. But all was good. Warm crispy... More

We found ourselves without dinner plans while in Houston for a trade show and really wanted tacos because, hey, tacos. (We're from Boston and there are pretty good tacos but they had to be better in Texas, right? Well, kinda.) The restaurant was packed with people of all ages and there's a pretty lovely patio. The Octopus Tacos are a... More
