I love eating at Ninfa's when I am in Waco. I love their hot tortilla chips while I wait for the food. They offer very good Mexican food and great salads. Service is great. Their waiters and waitresses are engaging. I recommend it!

We were staying at the Hilton, directly across the street from Ninfa's so it was extremely convenient. The food is standard good Mexican food for this chain. They use very tasty real cheese and the food is plentiful. Service was great. My sister-in-law ordered shrimp embrochet that was fantastic.

The wall murals set the theme for a relaxed lunch. Service was good and the Mango Salad was unique and tasty. Quisidella was also very good.

My husband and I love to go to Ninfa's for a date night! We munch on yummy green salsa and tortilla chips while we wait for our food. My personal favorite is the beef fajitas. It's in a great location in downtown that is close to a lot of fun places for a brief walk.

We stopped in around 2pm and the place was packed. Not a problem we weren't in a hurry. This was the first time I had warm salsa. I prefer it cold. My son and husband had chimichanga, and I had shrimp tacos. All came with beans mine were a little different and delicious. Server wasn't great and had excuses for... More

The food is wonderful, and delicious. We sat in the Bar area, our waitresses name was Angie. She was awesome, very attentive and welcoming. The drinks were made to perfection. I will definitely return and hopefully sit in Angie's section again.

Nice venue, plenty of seating. We ordered lunch specials which are $8.99-$10. Chips were good, salsa and avocado dips were tasty. Food came quickly, burrito was ok, flauta and cheese puff were nothing special. Rice and refried beans needed more flavor. Most things on the menu seemed pricey. Have had better Mexican food in Houston.

This restaurant is massive and my fajitas where quite tasty. The chips and queso were so so and my wife's chimi changa wasn't like anyone I've ever seen and not in a good way. It was overall decent but not sure we would go back.

We went here because of the location but it wasn't great. The fajitas were a boiled type-they really needed to be seared. The charro beans had a great flavor. The crispy taco shell was soggy.

The best part of this place is the renovated venue. The staff are friendly and accommodating. The food is ok and like many chains, smothered in too much cheese and too many onions. However, of you like that then you will receive ample portions of them as well as a huge meal.
