We stopped in around 2pm and the place was packed. Not a problem we weren't in a hurry. This was the first time I had warm salsa. I prefer it cold. My son and husband had chimichanga, and I had shrimp tacos. All came with beans mine were a little different and delicious. Server wasn't great and had excuses for... More

The food is wonderful, and delicious. We sat in the Bar area, our waitresses name was Angie. She was awesome, very attentive and welcoming. The drinks were made to perfection. I will definitely return and hopefully sit in Angie's section again.

Nice venue, plenty of seating. We ordered lunch specials which are $8.99-$10. Chips were good, salsa and avocado dips were tasty. Food came quickly, burrito was ok, flauta and cheese puff were nothing special. Rice and refried beans needed more flavor. Most things on the menu seemed pricey. Have had better Mexican food in Houston.

This restaurant is massive and my fajitas where quite tasty. The chips and queso were so so and my wife's chimi changa wasn't like anyone I've ever seen and not in a good way. It was overall decent but not sure we would go back.

We went here because of the location but it wasn't great. The fajitas were a boiled type-they really needed to be seared. The charro beans had a great flavor. The crispy taco shell was soggy.

The best part of this place is the renovated venue. The staff are friendly and accommodating. The food is ok and like many chains, smothered in too much cheese and too many onions. However, of you like that then you will receive ample portions of them as well as a huge meal.

Arrived around 2 pm so lunch rush was over but, still a good crowd in the dining room. Had a hard time deciding on what to order because it all looked good. Decided on taco and tamale.Generous prions of rice and beans and large size taco and tamale. Very tasty and filling. The waiter looked like he did not want... More

Ninfas is my favorite Mexican food restaurant in Waco. Very generous portions and always delicious. Always busy, but worth the wait! I highly recommend it.

Filled with friendly people and a great atmosphere, Ninfa's is not a typical Mexican restaurant. The dishes were so authentic and delicious. We got a sampling for our group to-go, and we enjoyed every bite. Highly recommended!
