What a great restaurant! Great atmosphere, tasty food, friendly servers and the dessert- yum! The red salsa during the setup is very tasty and comes heated. Chicken enchiladas with the Ranchero Salsa was so tasty. Tried the fried ice cream for dessert and it was excellent as well.

We went for dinner, a few days ago, to this restaurant and we had a good time there. It was Friday evening, the restaurant was full. So it was very loud. But the waiter was smiling and welcoming. On the menu, there was a great choice of Mexican dishes (the usual ones). We tried the tacos, the fajitas and nachos.... More

Girls trip to Spice Village and a stop here for lunch. Steak nachos, enchiladas and shrimp quesadillas were all fabulous. Don't get the queso, not the best. Little on the sharp cheesy side and too yellow....prefer a white queso.

My wife and I had lunch here last week and were impressed with the quality of the food. She had spinach enchiladas and said they were the best she has had. I had the jalapeño wrapped shrimp and wasn't disappointed.

I started loving Ninfa's years ago in Houston. It's still as great as ever. My enchiladas were perfect. And I would drink their green sauce if I could get it by the glass!

As soon as they brought out that green salsa with chips, I had flashbacks of the old Ninfa's on Navigation in Houston years ago. That sauce is amazing! The chicken fajitas came out sizzling and didn't stop for several minutes. Delicious!!! I wanted to see if the margaritas were still really good but we had to drive back to DFW... More

One great TexMex Restaurant. It's all good, plus great red and green sauces. The atmosphere is great, too, in downtown Waco warehouse district.

This place has great charm and good food. The margueritas also good. Our server was not very friendly but not a problem. It's in the Spice Village, a neat shopping area.

Stopped here traveling through Waco, a very jaunt off I-35. Sat in the bar area tables, and had good service. Enjoyed the quesadilla's both shrimp and chicken. Nice upbeat atmosphere.

Bright, airy & pretty this restaurant serves good food. The service is good, the place is pretty clean & our server was attentive & helpful. My salad was fresh & flavourful though large enough to feed a family! There was no issue with a substitution I requested in my salad. My husband's pork carnitas was good. A pleasant experience .

Thank JYPA
