Went on recommendation and glad we did as the food was delicious. Went on a Sunday night. Service right off the bat was awful. They also were out of the drink I wanted:(

Enjoyed this Mexican restaurant. Nice atmosphere, family friendly, the wait staff is helpful when trying to select a dish. Got extremely busy so get there early.

Ninfa's is a solid option. Tons of seating with a great location downtown. Limited outside seating for when the weather is nice. Pretty good margaritas. Pretty good chips and salsa, which are what I call Houston style: warm, tomatoey salsa. A good place for drinks and apps, as well as dinner. Never had anything here I didn't like!

Our friends suggested we have a late supper, and Ninfas was close to our hotel. I had not been to a Ninfas restaurent since living in Houston, and agreed they would be a good choice. I was a little hesitant about having mexican food after 10PM, but I am glad we did it. The mole enchilados were really good. Lots... More

After shopping this was a great place to stop and eat. The margaritas were good and the food was very yummy. There were several of us at lunch time and we were very pleased with the service.

Us: several adults with two young children, weekend at lunch. Very good food (selection and quality), friendly service, and good atmosphere. Lots of seating. Medium noise level once full. Would recommend for friends and family. We’ll certainly go back next time we’re in Waco.

I have eaten at Nimfas a quite a few times. And recently and especially my last visit, they have dropped the ball. We waited almost 20 minutes for the wait staff. Wasn't even half full. And it seemed that we bothered the waitress that came to assist us. I think this is usually the problem from hiring college kids, they... More
