My husband and I were given a $50 gift card to Ninfa's. We tried to go on a Friday night but the place was packed with a one hour wait for two people. We went the next day (a Saturday at noon). We were put at a table by the bar and the table beside us was occupied by a... read more

We were in a hurry so ate at the bar. We had absolutely perfect service....quick and great food. Bartender was conscious of our need for speed.

Granted, I was there late in the afternoon when the restaurant was not crowded, but the service at the bar was excellent. The staff was very friendly. Great happy hour .... margaritas were top notch. The menu is a little more "upscale" than most Mexican restaurants (as are the prices), but the food is excellent and well worth the dollars.

Excellent service in the bar area. We had an early dinner- dining on beef quesadillas, beef enchiladas, chicken enchiladas and chips & salsa. Food was great, margaritas were very tasty, and service was impeccable. Enchilada entrees were are about $14 each (fair price). We also had fried ice cream, flan and the Oreo brownie sundae for dessert- all were excellent!!... More

Always loved Ninfas, but after a couple of visits found hair on the edge of my plate. Decided not to go again, but over a period of three or four months thought I would give them another try. All went well first couple of visits, and then....hair actually embedded inside of my enchilada; it was so long that I stopped... More

If you are looking for cheap tacos and burritos go to chipotle, but here you will find delicious truly fresh tortillas and chips with excellently seasoned meats and sauces. The salsas served with the chips were so good I ate the entire bowl. I had enchiladas in a unique Swiss sauce but on previous visits I have had the burritos... More

Good Mexican restaurants can make it all look great and taste great - Ninfa's does that! It's right off the freeway and close enough to walk from several hotels (we did that! Nice to stretch your legs after a long days' drive!) The food was good - fresh chips. It's all good. They even had live music in the bar.... More

Place is dirty. Food is bland and gross. Salsa is terrible. Chicken is nasty. Someone needs to take over this restaurant.

My family loves coming here. Everytime we drive to Texas from Alabama we stop to eat here (and usually on the way home as well!). We always get the same thing - Tacos al Carbon with beef. You can't beat it. The green salsa they serve is also our favorite salsa out of the many Mexican restaurants we visit.

1. Good strong margaritas. 2. Great yellow queso dip. 3. A must try are the queso's (I prefer the chihuahua queso, add chicken or steak). 4. If they have the chihuahua platter special, it is a must. 5. Always friendly service. 6. The green dip that comes with the chips is delicious. 7. Most people like the salsa; however it... More
