A group of friend and I get together once a year to explore small, hidden restaurants that serve tacos and have high ratings on review sites. Ninfa's was a perfect fit, and turned out to be the majority favorite of the five stops we made this year on our Taco Tour. This place is also very well known to the... More

There is nothing better than a fresh, warm tortilla with butter. So good your eyes roll! Not a fan of their rice. Stop in early and get a dozen tortillas to go! You'll be glad you did!

I've been a handful of times and it never disappoints. The flour tortillas are probably the best I've ever had anywhere. They serve them in a tortilla warmer at the table with butter and salsa. The salsa is very tomato tasting which isn't my forte, but the tortillas are to die for by themselves. Squirt some butter in them and... More

Solid and very consistent diner west of downtown KC. It is well worth the trip. I have gone up and down the menu and Ninfas has always delivered. And, as noted by almost everyone else, the tortillas rock! Enjoy!

We stopped in to buy their famous flour tortillas but realized that you can dine in. It's just a little hole in the wall but The food is great and inexpensive. I had the large bowl of chili with pork. Lots of meat and pretty spicy. Deliciously! My son in law is Mexican and is picky but he liked his... More

Tortillas were pretty good but everything else " not so much". The rice was like a rice soup, the beans were just boiled beans (not refried) with no spice to them. My husband had tacos & the meat had a strange taste. I had burrito's, sorry folks but my mother-In-Law taught me how to make pork chili for burrito's &... More

Everything is delicious, but the tortillas are the best in KC. We stop every time we drive through and have even made special trips when the craving hits.

I read reviews regarding the tortillas at Ninfas. Tortillas were excellent just like my mother made when I was growing up. That's where the comparison stops. I ordered the burrito spread and it was just ok. Service and restaurant atmosphere were just ok as well.

A friend who lives in KC introduced us to family owned and operated Ninfa's, and we never leave KC without eating in AND buying tortillas and salsa to go. The homemade tamales are especially good. It is regularly full of first responders at lunch time -- a definite sign of a solid good choice. No green chile (as in Colorado),... More
