Great Texas Mexican restaurant. Service is good and has a historic atmosphere in the old district of Waco close to river. The Las Verdes were wonderful as well as their Tacos. The draft beer just went well with the food.

The restaurant was nice music not too loud, lots to choose from the menu. The chicken tacos a hit. The tortilla soup ok. The salsas I could have eaten all day. The el Bonita a good choice too. A must return. Staff was great

I have to admit I was a bit disappointed with our dinner. We used to eat at Ninfas in Houston long ago and it was always excellent. This was okay, but the puff was soggy and the rest was just okay. We should have gone...More
