Great Food, Service and Atmosphere. Reasonable prices and huge servings. I usually eat half and take the other half home to eat the next day. My wife and daughter will share a meal. My wife and daughters also love the shops that are in the Ninfas location.

Ninfas has excellent tasting Mexican food. Our area has many Mexican food restaurants, but Ninfas is a family favorite. Their fajitas are amazing. Wash your food down with an ice cold NinaRita. Chips and salsa are also very tasty. Their menu has many options to choose from. I love their poblano peppers, nachos, chicken enchiladas just to choose a few.

My husband and I love Ninfa's! We come here at least once a month and the food is always good quality, they don't skimp on the drinks, and the service is good. When they are busy there may be a wait, but it's worth it, in my opinion. My favorite dish is the spinach enchiladas; the creamy cilantro sauce is... More

I went to Ninfa's with some friends and really loved the experience. The menu is loaded with Tex-Mex options. This is a huge restaurant with a ton of seating, but they are extremely popular, and the wait can be very long at peak hours. It's probably worth the wait, to be honest. Neat atmosphere at well.

The Fajitas here are delicious. We ordered steak and chicken for two and it was more than plenty. Fajitas butter makes the meat just melt in your mouth. I also had the Jalisco topping, excellent. I'm a guacamole snob and I enjoyed their style of guac, very authentic. We ordered two chambord meltdown margaritas that were very good. Very busy... More

Good chips and salsa. I had the chicken fajita burritos. They were good. Fun atmosphere in downtown Waco.

Margaritas were tasty and the guacamole was substantially better than average. Wife's spinach enchiladas were excellent but, perhaps, a bit heavy on the cilantro cream sauce. My taco fajita salad was a disappointment--basically iceberg lettuce and chicken straps. REALLY! The cheesecake dessert was a shock. Best. Ever. Tasted. Service was great.
