First of all, who eats that much? They could easily lower their prices if they cut back on the quantity of food. The food was good but not any better than any other chain restaurant.

I have eaten at several Mexican restaurants as I travel for business. They got my original order wrong and I had to send back. My party had mostly finished when they brought out my food. The food tasted ok but nothing out of the ordinary.

Ninfa’s is generally regarded as the best TexMex place in town. The place has a great atmosphere, being converted from an old barn. Its popularity makes it somewhat noisy, so it is best to find an alcove if possible, if conversation is a priority. Unfortunately, there was only one vegetarian option – vegetable fajitas – although this was excellent. Helpings... More

The fajitas were awesome and I loved the green salsa. The margaritas were awesome too and I enjoyed the lively atmosphere. Plan to visit again when in Waco.

Great atmosphere and the food was awesome. Only complaint by our family was that it was pretty loud. Otherwise EVERYONE enjoyed this from 5 y/o to 60 y/o

As usual, Ninfas had very good food. It was a Friday night, and very busy, but I felt our service was lacking. We had to ask for everything 2 or 3 times.....and service was very slow. It is a very nice location

We recently celebrated a birthday at Ninfa's. The wait was very long and most of the party did not receive what they ordered. The drinks were disappointing. The fajita meat was cold and dry. We were so embarrassed and disappointed. We may never go again.

We wont be back - the service was great - the food was not. We ordered the steak meal and it was overdone, not steak at all but a skirt steak that was really fajita meat not cut in strips. It was gross. Get a real steak.
