“Best Mexican Restaurant North or South of the Border”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2014

For those who thought all Mexican was the same they have never been to Ninfas. A wonderful mix a traditional foods from the heart of Mexico with the best Tex-Mex twists you've ever tasted. All food groups and home made warmed salsa. 5 star.

“Great Place to Eat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2014

Ninfa's is great for large or small groups. IMO, they have the best queso and chicken fajitas in town. Sunday lunch usually is a good time to eat here since there is rarely a long wait. It is worth the stop if you like good Mexican food!

“typical tex-mex”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2014

A large open restaurant with a festive atmosphere. The chips and salsa were good as were the margaritas. The food was typical tex-mex. Neither great nor bad. Nothing stood out.

“Great evening meal with business associates from across Texas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

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 !!

“Best tex-mex in Central Texas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

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.
