After being in the wind at the tennis matches, we had a giant thirst. Parked at Hilton and went to Ninfa's for happy hour. $2.00 Bud Light and discounted margaritas quenched our thirst. Warm chips and 2 salsas on the finishing touch. A little salsa music and we were happy.

We visited the Magnolia Silos and walked ourselves weak and hungry. We asked a vendor at the Silos for a recommendation for late lunch and he suggested Ninfa's. We thought we escaped the crowd at the Silos, but they seemed to have preseeded us in coming to Ninfa's. It was packed with people waiting, but there were seats avialable -... More

Ate here last week when visiting the Silos. Really wanted some great Mexican food. So far, we have discovered that Texas does not have good Mexican food. Asked our waiter to bring us some pico and we got a to go container used for salad dressing with tomatoes, onions and cilantro in it. No taste or spice! Food was loaded... More

We were in Waco to visit the Magnolia Market. No idea about local restaurants but we got a recommendation to go to Ninfa's. It was a good choice. Food was nice, service as well. The Daiquiri was fabulous. Only thing: I would have loved to sit outside on the balcony but no server was available for outside service. Would go... More

My husband never misses an opportunity to eat here when we visit family in Waco. It's great Tex-Mex in a bright and fun atmosphere. The green sauce is so yummy! They do great guacamole, fajitas and enchiladas. They were happy to accommodate a low sodium dietary restriction to the best of their ability. We will continue to dine here at... More

I've always loved going to Ninfa's. This has been one of my go to places even when I was in college. The food has always been great, just like I remember it.

We couldn't decide where to have dinner after spending a couple of hours in Spice Village. We happened to notice Ninfa's just steps away from us. There was plenty of food & service was good considering how busy they were!

We ate here on our last day in Waco and really enjoyed it! The food was great and very filling, and their prices are mid-range. The atmosphere and location of the restaurant is really great and close to downtown attractions.

I had driven from the Metroplex and my business associate had driven from Austin to have a lunch meeting. The atmosphere was nice, a bit loud, but friendly. The food was very good, nothing spectacular, but very good. Our waiter seemed to disappear for long periods of time and my associate and I had finished our iced teas and had... More
