I haven't been to this restaurant recently but The Original Ninfas was featured on a show off Houston. We went for the Octopus and it was outstanding. We sat outside and had a wonderful experience. The food was great and so were the Margaritas.

Native Houstonians stressed how good this place is! Went with my boss on a work trip last month. Very cute venue. Saw both families and presumably dates. Dull roar because other people obviously love this place and there was not an open table. I had the original Ninfarita which I definitely recommend. Really enjoyed the queso as well. One native...

35 years ago, we moved from Houston to West Texas. What we missed most was Ninfa's where we got our Tex-Mex fix 4-5 times a month. Had the opportunity to go back last week and there have been lots of changes.....different layout, new owner. What didn't change was great food and a great wait staff. Still a super place to...

If the service were better, this could be a great place to eat. wait staff should swarm patrons and take their drink orders early (and often). homemade tortilla's are tasty, but a bit heavy. fajitas are excellent and worth the trip.

Everything about this place made me happy. It was a cute place, fitting for a casual or fancy date night out. We started our dinner with some chips, queso,and margaritas. All were wonderful.For an entree we split the fajitas which were amazing! I would highly recommend trying them. The tortillas and flavor of the fajitas were for fresh and executed... More

This is our go to breakfast spot for the weekend. The food is always fresh and absolutely delicious. The presentation is beautiful and the service is top notch. This is one rare place where I never have to ask the wait staff to refill my cup of coffee. They are always on it and man what a great cup of... More

Been eating at Ninfa's since the 1980s. There used to be more locations around town but it's still worth the effort to visit this original location. The food is always delicious, the margaritas are strong, the atmosphere is comfortable. Just know you'll have to wait a long time for a table unless you make a reservation and the bar area... More

This is the place where the original Ninfa's was established in the 1970s and is known for its fajitas. the building has been expanded but the charm of the original building still holds true -- walk in and you are literally right in the middle of the kitchen where plates are being turned out and tortillas rolled. love the green...

Our server, Hugo, was exceptional! We are visiting from San Antonio and heard about Ninfa's. We are so happy that we decided to celebrate the Astro Win here. The food and drinks were perfectly made and we were taken care of from the moment we walked in the door until we received our bill. We will definitely recommend and return... More

I can't make it clearer than to say: Just Go There!! Fantastic starts with a margarita and the chips and salsa. You will discover what I mean. Then close your eyes, put your finger on the menu anywhere and get ready for DELICIOSO!!
