Nice place and very popular as it is close to downtown area hotels and Baylor University. We went there for lunch after moving our daughter in to BU. As others have mentioned, this place is popular. It has a nice atmosphere and great location, we found the food good, but nothing exceptional. Service was good, prices were reasonable, just expected a bit more on the food side. We will go back, but if you do eat a lot of this type of cuisine, don't expect to wowed by the food. It's above average, but not great in our opinion.

I always go to Ninfa's when visiting my daughter at Baylor. I would eat there several times each trip, but my daughter gets burned out on Mexican food.

Excellent food and drinks at a reasonable price. Expect a wait as its very popular.

Our waiter, Maximus, was great. He was warm and funny. The best Mexican rice I've eaten. It was fluffy and tasted fresh. The carnitas were a little dry. The restaurant is a big open plan, so it is a not noisy.
