Tortillas were pretty good but everything else " not so much". The rice was like a rice soup, the beans were just boiled beans (not refried) with no spice to them. My husband had tacos & the meat had a strange taste. I had burrito's, sorry folks but my mother-In-Law taught me how to make pork chili for burrito's &... More

Everything is delicious, but the tortillas are the best in KC. We stop every time we drive through and have even made special trips when the craving hits.

I read reviews regarding the tortillas at Ninfas. Tortillas were excellent just like my mother made when I was growing up. That's where the comparison stops. I ordered the burrito spread and it was just ok. Service and restaurant atmosphere were just ok as well.

A friend who lives in KC introduced us to family owned and operated Ninfa's, and we never leave KC without eating in AND buying tortillas and salsa to go. The homemade tamales are especially good. It is regularly full of first responders at lunch time -- a definite sign of a solid good choice. No green chile (as in Colorado),... More

Ninfa's is a modest little place with great food and service. The star of the show is definitely the fresh home made flour tortillas. It looked to me as if all the diners were taking home a bag of the tortillas and there were many customers walking in to pick up a supply. I would recommend finding a seat for... More

They have the best tortillas in the area. I pick them up for dinner, but end up eating them on my way home.
