When visiting from out of town we stumbled across this restaurant and could not have been happier. The food was great and reasonably priced. The service and atmosphere was A+. We enjoyed the Tejas Combo, Tacos al Carbon, and you must get the guacamole.

Been coming here since 1973 - but, last time was 1995 - 20 years ago. Thankfully, nothing's changed. Lotsa history, terrific food, and - the neighborhoods even a lot less scary now. Everything's good here. A little carne asada, frijoles & flour tortillas can't be...More

Way too pricey for Mexican food. Overall good food though. It is still very popular but not quiet and inside the noise is pretty loud. Hard to visit at all inside. I liked the new patio out front. Drinks are pricey too

An airport employee recommended Ninfa's. It was not the same old Mexican restaurant recipes we are used to. The seasonings and presentation were subtly unique. The handmade tortillas were delicious. The servers were friendly. The next time we visit Houston, we will eat here again.

Great service, great margaritas, wonderful food! They make the most wonderful tamales I've ever had. The salsa is on the mild side and when I asked if they had anything with more heat I was told they could make me a order in the kitchen,...More

My husband and I were in Houston on business and checked Trip Advisor reviews for great Mexican Restaurants. Ninfa's was great. We enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. The service was great also and the staff was very friendly. We loved it.

Ninfa's on Navigation is the birthplace of popularized Tex-Mex, specifically fajitas. The food is consistently very good, portions are large, house margaritas are better than at most other places and the decor is interesting, with photos of Mama Ninfa all over the wall. I'd recommend...More

I really do not know. I'd call to ask first. I didn't notice any while we waited. Good luck!
Do you have a separate room for a party of 50 for a rehearsal dinner for Nov 20th at 7 pm? How much down payment would I need to reserve a room?

I have never seen a separate room for private parties. You should call them and inquire.
