“Terrible service and tex mex”
Reviewed November 18, 2012 via mobile

Wasn't authentic Mexican food. My waiter took so long we never ordered. Just drinks. He even failed to bring us chips and salsa when my party asked 5 times and we even had two strange men ask for us. The service was ridiculous that night and for that we made it out without eating. Very disappointing. We were starving and not satisfied. Plus pricey for having such a petite menu with the same items. Change up

Reviewed November 12, 2012

This place has the BEST Mexican food!!! Great fajitas and great quesadillas. Service can be a little slow if at dinner time, but well worth the wait!!

“Tasty”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

Great location, killer margaritas. Lunch prices on menu NOT offered on weekends, which would have been nice to know before we ordered, but food was yummy.

“FABULOUS FAJITAS AND MORE”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

We recently had dinner at Ninfa's in Waco, Texas. We were seated after a short wait which surprised us. But after getting our food fresh, hot, delicious, and quickly, we realized how they were able to serve many diners in a short time. We were never rushed at all and the service was perfect. The fajitas were well flavored with soft fresh tortillas. The charro beans were so good, I would have been happy with just a bowl of them. The guacamole was icy cold and oh so good. We even had sopapillas for dessert. I have to say that we were extremely happy with our entire experience. The best Mexican food we have had in a long time. Just thinking about it makes me want to rush right back for more.
