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.

I had not been to a Ninfa's before. This was is in a renovated building, nicely done. It was a Sat. at noon. It was pretty busy and service was a little slow. If you don't like spicy meat or cilantro, your choices will be limited. I just got tacos and a cheese puff. The table shared a queso. To... More

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. We ordered the queso only because I was hungry and I wanted something immediately. There was the choice between the small for $7.49 and the... More

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.

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.

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
