The food was not good. Tough meat and thick flour tortillias. Had to eat on paper plates and used plastic. Place was dirty. They should close and clean the place while they are remodeling the kitchen.

Authentic, creative, reasonably-prices Mexican cuisine. Great margaritas, amazing chile rellenos, and bacon wrapped shrimp to die for. Go here

The original Ninfa's on Navigation still reigns as the grande dame of all Tex-Mex restaurants in Houston, TX. The food is always exceptionally well-prepared with the finest freshest northern Mexico herbs, spices, vegetables, meats, and cheeses. On my most recent visit to NonN I enjoyed...More
