Great service and great food. Ninfa's - the original mexican restaurant in Houston and this is original location. Ninfaritas a must to accompany your meal! Lots of food - always a "to go" box!

Love the food here. Portions are huge, one can share if you are a small eater. Great margaritas and desserts to be had at this restaurant. Servers are all pleasant. One of the many food places I frequent to in Houston.

Stopped in our way thru Houston. Heard the original Ninfa’s was a mandatory stop for Houston. Order what I thought was queso but was fried cheese and pepper dip, which was very good. Tortillas were homemade and delicious. The fajitas were seasoned well and tasty....More
