This restaurant was horrible. We visited on Friday, Dec. 5 2014 and probably should have left when I noticed that one of the managers was too busy flirting with the hostesses than watching over the dinning room like he should have. It took over 45 minutes to get seated and then we sat there another 5 plus minutes before anyone... More

This is my favorite Mexican food restaurant in Waco. We do have some very good smaller restaurants, Ninfa's is best over-all. Good food, good selection, good margaritas. What more can you ask! It is not the best place to go to have a quiet visit over dinner. Quite noisy. The wine selection is OK. But why would you want wine!?!... More

The food and service is great. Highly recommend the margaritas. They are perfect. One of the best Mexican restaurants around.

I like the atmosphere. The food is usually ok. Service can sometimes be slow. It can be a little pricey, but I usually enjoy my visits.

Always liked this place until today. As I waited for my food the table behind me was receiving their meal. All of a sudden I am hit with a tray of food. As is am cleaning myself, no one apologized for spilling it on me, nor acknowledged the fact that food was on me. I'm not one to complain but... More

I've been here many times over the years and was finally able to bring my wife. She agreed that this is better than any Tex-Mex that we've had outside of Texas. There are some different dishes, like the craw-fish tacos, which were very good. I can't recall what my wife had, but she raved about the fluffy tortillas. Nice atmosphere,... More

This is your average Tex-Mex but much more expensive than other Mexican restaurants. I ordered the chicken fajitas (they come in 3 sizes). I got the smallest size, about the equivalent of a small chicken breast and it came with onions, no peppers. This was $16.99, what a rip off. The small margaritas were not cheap and had little alcohol... More

Consistently tasty food with several menu items that you won't find in the dozens of other Tex-Mex restaurants in town. The crawfish enchiladas are excellent, as are the pechugas Alfonso. The green salsa is also very, very good. The atmosphere is pleasant. It's located in an old brick warehouse building, with tall brick walls, ceilings, and murals of some of... More

They closed the one in Fort Worth years ago. The fajitas are WONDERFUL! Fresh and amazing tortillas. The beans are great and have a little peppery kick to them. We went during a conference so it was busy and crowded, bit service was still prompt and the food was great
