Typical Tex-Mex Regional Fair

This is a good place for the non-discriminating diner of Mexican foods. Baton Rouge is sadly lacking of good restaurants serving typical 'south of the border" cuisine.

On my last visit it was horrible service. We got seated to our table quickly but it took forever for the server to come around. When she did she seemed like we were bothering her. We ordered our food and appetizer at the same time our food came out but never our appetizer, cheese dip when it finally did come... More

My wife and I went here after a show downtown. First off, we noticed that the Margaritas were extremely sour. No good Mixologist should make one this sour. Its not good for your stomach. They brought out chips and salsa, and the red and green were both different than we have ever seen. They also brought out hot pickled veggies,... More

Crowded, overpriced, and the food and drinks were not very good to say the least. The drinks were overpriced, the food was bland and the serving size was very small. I'm finding out that Louisiana's Mexican restaurants are not even close to those in Georgia. Some of the reviews that state this is some of the best Mexican food the... More

The restaurant is near the crowne plaza. The service is fast. The food is good. Prices reasonable. If you like Mexican food this place is for you.

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... More

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
