A treat for out of towners

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.

I eat at a lot of Mexican restaurants and this one is expensive.! I had posole (which is only served until 2 on Saturday and Sunday) with a michelada, they were both delicious. My husband had fajita nachos. They were chips with one piece of meat sitting atop of it. He was not very happy. Also, it was raining hard... More

Ninfa's is one of the original TexMex restaurants in Houston and worth the wait. The food is delicious and the margarita's are refreshing. Try the fajitas and you'll know why even Native Houstonian's eat here.

This is the original location for this chain of restaurants Great atmosphere and good service. Had lunch with friends, enchiladas, soup, chips and salsa was more than I could eat Huge glass of Iced Tea was kept full. Great Mexican food in a town with many choices. Make sure you choose Ninfas.

The original Ninfa's on Navigation is an event worthy dining experience. The Ninfaritas are the perfect balance of tartness and sweetness. The beef fajitas perfectly seasoned, complemented by the grilled peppers and napalitos. We always order a pound to split for my husband and me with grilled quail for everyone, including the six-year- old. The staff is consistently friendly and... More

Our group of 11 reserved a table at 6PM on a Friday. Parking is impossible, use the free valet. We were seated promptly. The food is very good. The beef fajitas and home made tortillas that made this place famous decades ago are still excellent. Try the redfish tacos or the fajita burger. The place is super loud, so plan... More

The original Ninfa's has great Tex-Mex and hasn't changed much over the years. It's a very busy place so expect to wait on weekends. Can't beat their enchiladas and green salsa paired with a margarita on the rocks with salt. It's a fun place!
