There are several Ninfa's restaurant locations throughout Houston. I wouldn't make a special trip to this location. However, if you are looking for a "nostalgic feel" at the original Ninfa's restaraunt then this is the place to visit. The service was very good. The food was good, but it was nothing spectacular. It was also a bit pricy for "tex-mex."... More

I can't say it was the best Mexican meal I have had but definitely good and would go again. Friendly staff and seemed clean.

Used to go here all the time, as time has gone on, it has just become another of the many average Mexican restaurants in Houston. Service is ok, food is ok.

First time eating at this restaurant that we've been meaning to try for a while. So plesed that we did, it's the best Mexican/Tex-Mex food we've had. Great menu, reasonable prices and the service was faultless. Will definitely be back again.

Ninf'as is great. The locations creams locals-only; the building looks like it's been there for years, with the neighborhood around it looking flat worn out. The folks who greet you seem genuine; the decor real; the chairs and tables well-suited for a nice established restaurant. The server brings us water and her ever-present assistant places a large fresh-made bowl of... More

Consistent good food. Wide variety of traditional Mexican as well as Tex Mex. Seafood and tamales are worth trying. Basic atmosphere & casual. Nice patio as well and good margaritas

Always love visiting Ninfas with friends from out of town. Exciting, busy and fantastic food. We have been going to this Ninfas for 20 years and it has not lost its charm.

There are plenty of Mexican and Tex-Mex Restaurants in Houston, TX but Ninfa's on Navigation is THE only place to go for REAL Mexican. Their slogan says it all: “The best Mexican food in Texas since Texas was in Mexico.™”, What else can I add to that? Full complete menu with some of Mama Ninfa's favorites. Best margaritas in Houston... More

Got seated right away at lunch with no wait, food was served quickly and the staff was very attentive. Food was excellent and cooked just right. Would love to try again next time in the area.
