Was looking for a good Mexican restaurant in Waco on way to San Antonio. Food was great. Service was very efficient. Little pricey, but not scary, and for all you get very happy we stopped.

If you are traveling on I35 going to Austin or the coast, make sure you make this as your road stop for a bite of great food. The spinach enchiladas, nachos and Ritas are all so yummy, but if you want to try something different at a Tex-Mex restaurant, give the red fish covered in a savory buttery sauce served... More

Ninfas is an outstanding Mexican food restaurant. You are greeted promptly, and their food is second to none. I am cheap, so I feel the food is a bit pricy; however, you get what you pay for! I never feel like I was overcharged, as the food is that good! I have had several different dishes, and they were all... More

There is something about going to Ninfa's. Every time we visit my daughter at Baylor Ninfa's is a must. The food is really good and the atmosphere is always busy. A little noisy for talking in a group but it's worth it.

Just like the original Ninfa's in Houston, Texas! Best TexMex food in the world. We love Ninfa's in Waco, Texas.

Ate lunch here before the Baylor-SMU game. Food, drinks, and service was great. I would go again if I was in the area.

We tend to get the same dish each time we go here but we do enjoy the chicken enchilada verde and the chicken flaunts served with guacamole and sour cream. We always get chicken since beef at any Mexican restaurant is usually poor quality.

Not a bad place to visit, can be a little loud in the evening. I've had the enchilada and taco plates, and they were about average, nothing outstanding. There really isn't anything here that sets it apart from other Mexican restaurants, if you're in the area it's worth stopping in, just not worth going out of your way for.

We were disappointed by this visit. Previous visits were ok, but this time the place was very busy. After waiting 30 min. for a table, the service was extremely slow.

My first meal at a Nifa's was just an ok experience. I asked our waitress if it was Happy Hour and she replayed yes it last till 6:00 so we ordered margaritas. When I received my check I was charged full price (7.50). I asked our waitress about it and her replay was (Our Happy Hour ends at 5:30). Thanks... More
