The downtown atmosphere, weather and the decoration of Ninfas was fantastic. All of our associates loved their meals and loved the ambience, though quite loud. The food was fantastic all the way around and service was very attentive. Great time overall !!

Might be a franchise but the owner/manager lives locally and the place is always packed because the food is excellent, service always quick and it's reasonably priced.

Ninfa's is in a really cool building in downtown Waco. The food is excellent and the environment is fast paced. It can be a little loud in the restaurant due to the high ceilings. The margaritas are fantastic. Be prepared for a wait if you go during prime time.

I loved coming here while I was in school and I enjoyed lunch when I stopped by Waco last week. I only wish I hadn't been driving back to the office/on a business trip so that I could have had one of their fabulous margaritas. The lunch menu is so affordable and the portions are more than enough that you... More

It was a great meal! We went around 8:00 and still lots of people eating. Very glad we ate there. Service was quick. They kept the chips and salsa coming. Never was looking for a drink refill either. Would go there again.

Stayed at Courtyard Waco and this restaurant is an easy walk from there. Food was very good and the service was excellent.

The bar area is a smoking area but... More

First time in Waco and staying at the Hilton. Thought we would take a short walk to find dinner. Right across the street is a strip mall with about every food you would want: wings, burgers, pubs, etc. The only sit-down Restuarant we found was Ninfas. It was good Mexican food very crowded with mostly college kids. Service was a... More
