Large servings

Good Mexican food, large servings. We could have easily shared a dinner and had plenty. Reasonable prices. Would eat here again. Service was a little slow, but nice wait staff.

Food was good too large of portions. Service was lacking. Our wait person didn't keep up with water (did I mention they were out Diet Dr Pepper?) one small serving of salsa for a table of four had to ask for additional salsa and chips. Will go back I am sure next time I am in Waco.

My husband and I are visiting Waco and decided to try Mexican last night. We could see Nimfa's from our hotel room and it was within walking distance. Let me begin by saying that the interior is beautiful and very unique. The waiter was ok but we were not satisfied with our food. My husband ordered fish tacos which he... More

I was so excited to be in Waco and discover they has a Ninfa's!! They have the best flour tortillas! The food at this location did not disappoint however the service was the absolute worst I've had in a very long time. It started with placing our drink order - 15 minutes later when it still had not arrived I... More

This is by far one of the best Mexican restaurants in Waco. Great menu and service. I come here for both lunch and dinner. Try it out.

We love Ninfa's restaurant. The location is the best and the ambiance is great, We have visited Ninfa's over the years and they always serve great Mexican food. Food is delicious. We sometimes order " India " which is not on their current menu - delicious!

Atmosphere, food, service - all good enough for out of town friends who don't appreciate a more authentic Mexican food experience in a less attractive package. I am more adventurous and prefer local establishments that works hard to serve an excellent meal at a reasonable price even if it isn't decked out like a Mexican fiesta on steroids.

We had lunch at Ninfa's which is in the same building as Spice - a great shopping place. The lunch was quick and actually very tasty. I know Ninfa's is a chain but have to say we thoroughly enjoyed this meal. The chips and salsa (both red/spicy and a guacamole sauce) were great and we munched those down while waiting... More

Decent margaritas, but for $7 they are getting overpriced. Overall quality of the Rita's has declined. Was one of our favorite places. Still is, but we only try to go during happy hour. Crawfish enchiladas are my favorite menu item.
