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

It's not much to look at, but the food is great, cheap, and tasty. The family who runs the place is very friendly and helpful, too. Just watch where you park!

This is one of my all-time favorite restaurants in Kansas City. The tortillas -- with butter and salsa -- are a bite of heaven. I can't stop eating them when I go. Try the tamale spread for your meal. Pig out. Enjoy!

The fresh, warm tortillas are brought out the minute you sit down and you can hear the whirl of the blender in the kitchen making up fresh batches... More

We were first turned on to Ninfa's just about a year ago when one of my wife's co-workers told her about a hole-in-the-wall that served warm flour tortillas instead of tortilla chips... We decided to check it out. We've been hooked since. It's small. It's family run. It's clean. It's cheap. It's tasty. And while you wait for your meal,... More

Best tortillas in the world! Hole in the wall atmosphere means they are serious about their food. Friendly family service.
