I stopped in for a quick meal and decided to take the whole family in for Saturday lunch. We loved the Margaritas and Mexican Martinis. I had the chalupa the first time I came in then the deluxe nachos and they were really good, a whole meal. The place was packed, will for sure be going back and would definitely... More

On the outside it looks pretty small.... but when you walk in there are high ceilings and a nice atmosphere. We eat here every time we visit Waco. The chicken fajitas are very good. The menu is a little pricey though... something crazy like $11 for queso.

We ordered the chicken soup. It was huge chunks of chicken appearing to be in the broth they were boiled in. Oh yes there was also a sprig of parsley. Worse soup I've ever tried to eat.

I LOVE this restaurant. The food is wonderful and the margaritas are to die for. A jog down Franklin Ave. to 3rd street will get you there. It is nestled in a shopping are that is usually very crowded. When the parking lot of full, there is more parking across the street. Even though there are lots of customers, they... More

This restaurant is beautiful! The food and service are great, but the main reason I love this restaurant is the atmosphere! It is lovely and relaxing.

I was in Waco for business and Ninfa's was recommended. I got the HALF ORDER (picture attached) Pechuga Alfonso with all the meats as recommended by our sever but no mushrooms. Holy cow, it was fabulous. The wine sauce was simply delicious. I could not eat it all so I can't imagine the WHOLE order. Service was outstanding as well.

It was a pretty busy Saturday night, and the four of us were seated after just a few minutes. We loved the queso with beef fajita meat appetizer and the guacamole is really good too. Our server was a lot of fun and took great care of it. The food is really really good.

This place was a lot of fun! The waitress we had was funny and made recommendations for our food. The margaritas are good and the food is too. I enjoyed the El Rancho as it came with a chili relleno. This place is a block from the conference center so an easy walk.
