The food here is always excellent and the staff is friendly. Go early to get seated without a wait. And don't forget the green sauce!

We shared a meal. Now that we have moved to Houston, we will make the Original Ninfa's one of our... More

This was my second visit to the Original Ninfas and, as is common, it didnt live up to my memory of the first visit. Steak fajitas were tasty, but not overly flavorful. The handmade tortillas got a bit hard. Enjoyed the margarita. These are minor nitpicks and otherwise, would still strongly recommend.

My friend from the West Coast got Ninfa's on Navigation as a recommendation there and I got the same from a friend on the East Coast and a Trip Advisor expert. This is a very modest restaurant, but the food is the best Mexican I have had! I love Mexican food and try it everywhere I go. If you want... More

I had heard so much about this place and was really excited to eat there. The service was really slow/bad. Took almost 20 minutes before I was able to order drinks/appetizers. Food was bland.

Made my first trip to Ninfa's , we both had frozen Margaritas , I had Al Pastor pork tacos and my wife had Enchiladas de Mole. All excellent. Service was super! The parking lot of packed sand was wet with small puddles, but I'm told it was in better condition than yrs past with a muddy parking lot.

When visiting from out of town we stumbled across this restaurant and could not have been happier. The food was great and reasonably priced. The service and atmosphere was A+. We enjoyed the Tejas Combo, Tacos al Carbon, and you must get the guacamole.

I have been in this restaurant everytime I went to Houston for business. It is well known for the Tex mex and the ambiance. Service is to notch and authentic. From "The King", Special thanks for the staff and the management for making my business meeting remarkable and memorable. Especial thanks to Jose.
