“Ninfa's Original”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

The new menu items are wonderful and the atmosphere cannot be beat in Houston. Wonderful Ninfarita's, too. Don't miss the Saturday and Sunday brunches.

“Patio dining at its best”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

If you love Mexican food and a great patio, Ninfa's is the place for you! Menu items are so tempting that you MUST return! They are known for their margaritas and have an entire menu devoted to same. If I remember correctly, they only serve bottled beers. Would LOVE to see some local tap beers on the menu. Service was perfect! Food was served HOT and we never felt rushed.

“Eh...”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

More average Tex Mex. What would Mama Ninfa think? That someone needs to have their booty swatted for letting her place decline like this. What used to be an excellent experience is easliy now replaced by Taco Bell.

“Iconic Tex Mex”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

While Houston is definitely not short of Tex Mex restaurants, Ninfa's has been the yardstick. The original location on Navigation is not far from MinuteMaid Park and well for those who want to say that they have had Tex Mex, this is a good safe spot to start.

“Worth the trip”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

Fabulous Mexican. For people visiting Houston, it is definitely worth going out of your way to find. The beef tacos are what I go for each time I'm in town.
