Great Mexican food near downtown Battle Creek. Had the lunch special and it was excellent. Free chips and salsa were the best. Loved the decor inside, very traditional a, real eye catcher. Will a make a point of eating here again next time I'm in Battle Creek.

Everyone wants to find a good Mexican restaurant. Pass Nina's Taqueria by and keep looking. There was an "off" taste to the barbacoa filling for the simple quesadilla, and the "mole" on the chicken tasted like it came from one of those pry-off-the-lid jars -- but too diluted. The iced tea was undrinkable, if you can imagine. Unfortunately our server... More

My friend found hair in her food today. She had to still pay for her coca-cola and I had to pay for my full meal even though I couldn't enjoy my meal due to fear of hair in my food and I'm not going to eat when my friend can not. Mistakes happen, that's okay, but own up to them.... More

Authentic, delicious food every time! Love this place, go enjoy a great meal. Not a Tex-Mex place, love each dish has it's own distinct flavor! And you can enjoy a Dos Equis with your dinner!!

We love the super burritos, specially the seafood. The service is good and decent waiting times. Everytime we stop by Battle Creek, we try to get some Nina's!

I "found" Nina's when I went shopping at Horrocks in Battle Creek years ago. They had just opened and the place looked a bit seedy but I love Mexican food and I was hungry. When I went in I noticed that most of the diners were Mexican or Mexican American and everyone looked like they were enjoying the food. There... More
