Tex mex isn't really our favourite food, but this place could change our minds. Loved the margaritas. Party of 5 shard the beef nachos and house salsa to start - delicious. We followed this up with the fajitas (chicken and beef) both excellent and plenty left over. Buzzing atmosphere, staff worked very hard. Would encourage you to make a reservation if going as the wait can be long.

Great fajitas. Good quality meat, not tough at all and next to zero gristle. The guac was decent too, I think it needed more lime juice though. Yummy margs with quality tequila. The portions are huge and the value is unbeatable. I'd like to see a more adventurous ceviche on the menu next time, throw in some pulpo! Lastly, great customer service, very friendly and family like vibe.

Free valet, yummy food and great atmosphere. Hugo is best waiter ever and fun to boot! Everyone raved about their dishes and even when you think you can't fit another bite, your palette wants more! Go here!

My wife and I have eaten at the Ninfa's on Navigation many times. We love the place and would recommend it to anyone in town, or from out of town. The staff is always friendly and the food is great. I lean towards the Xochitl soup. She is fond of the fajitas. A few other Ninfa's highlights. The margaritas are great (and strong). The chips are high quality (and not greasy). The green and red salsa are excellent. The tortillas might be the best in Houston (which is saying a lot).

Is Ninfa's perfect? No. The parking lot can be muddy after it rains (valet parking is available but not mandatory). We tried the much newer El Tiempo next door. The place is nice enough and the employees are great. Sadly, the food isn't as good as Ninfa's.

Note that these comments only apply to the Ninfa's on Navigation. Not all of the Ninfa's are as good.

Ninfa's was recommended to us by a few of the locals and we were VERY impressed! From the service to the atmosphere, Ninfa's on Navigation will be a dining experience we never forget! Our server, Juanita, was very helpful and so lovely. She helped recommend a few choices and her tastebuds were exactly right! We had the Diablo Shrimp Tacos and El Benny and we enjoyed every last bite. The two salsas are also outstanding. We will be returning on our next trip to try Mama Ninfa's Famous Tacos al Carbon:)
