Six of us went into Ninfa's to check it out. Being from out of state, we had never been there. WOW, I wish there was one near us. The food seemed authentic and it was really a great experience. I would go back again, if...More

You will enjoy this restaurant, very good food, not a Tex Mex restaurant, and great service. We really liked it, you should too.

The Ninfa's in downtown Waco is a decent one. I'd rate it between a 3.5 - 4 star experience, but it's in a great area with a lot of great shopping and close to Baylor. We loved the Ninfa's in Houston, but most of the...More

We talked to some people that we met that recommended that we give this place a try. So, we did. The food was mediocre at best. Service was ok

This used to be my favorite Mexican restaurant in Waco but after our last visit we won't be back. The cheese on the enchilatas was like rubber and there was not much more than a hint of the BBQ stuffing.

Food and service wasn't bad; however I was surprised at how expensive everything on the menu was! I paid $10 for a bean burrito rice and beans....then to top it off the margaritas were also expensive! I don't mind paying more for a good margarita...More

Yes, there are several. The cost will depend on whether people order from the menu or if you serve, for instance, fajitas for everyone. Generally, prices are $10-15 for lunch and $15-25 for dinner. Be aware that portions, in... More
