Fantastic Mexican Fare

This is a marvelous place rich with TexMex history in Houston. One of if not the first TexMex cantina in Houston. The food is fantastic both in the depth of the variety of entrées. You must stop here if you have a chance.

What a wonderful place! The atmosphere is a feast for the eyes, and the food is delicious. Service is pampering yet not overdone. It's a busy, popular place, so make reservations on OpenTable. Everyone is made welcome here, there are not enough superlatives to describe the food, and the prices are mid-range with large portions. I wanted to sneak the... More

I had the opportunity to try Ninfa's at a rehearsal dinner and the food was outstanding. Teh restaurant was jammed and the acoustics poor so it is not a good place for those who like it quiet. Although this was a large group the service was excellent and the presentation very good. We had a choice of chicken, beef or... More

We visited Ninfa's Saturday night and took the free shuttle to the Astros game. We didn't know what to expect and it turned out great! The food and margaritas were excellent, great service and the shuttle was perfect. The restaurant was noisy but it didn't bother us as we knew it would be loud on game day. We will visit... More

This restaurant is so unique that words cannot adequately describe it. You just have to go and experience. You would have to go across the border to get food more authentic Mexican. Service was prompt, and the waiter was courteous. The menu is extensive. I would recommend this as a "bucket list" place to eat while in Houston. There is... More

My daughter and son-in-law workiing in Saudi (repat) begged for Ninfas on Navigation so we indulged them and non only were not disappointed but esthatic! Service was 5 star and food most excellent! Ninfas has always had a reputation for quality but now has even improved on our previous experiences! Why go to another place to impress guests when Ninfas... More

Dinner for 4 adults, 1 teenager, and 3 kids is a good food experience, but it is a little pricey because you are paying for "original". Tax, license and dealer prep ran us $130 out the door, which is 10-20% above what you might do elsewhere. But it is Ninfa's and you walk right past the kitchen to get in.... More

We wanted to check out "The Original Ninfas" after we spent the night downtown for an Astros game. We seldom get downtown and this restaurant has routinely received great reviews and our lunch indicated they are well deserved! Service was polite and attentive, and our entrees were tasty and generous. The margaritas were not overly sweet or sour, just right... More
