Ninfa's menu is the typical Mexican faire. The food was good, the cost reasonable. The atmosphere is casual and open. Our party of 5 was seated within minutes and we welcomed the margaritas after a hot long day of touring

We had a sweet waiter. Some of our orders were right on the first try, but he got them corrected quickly. The food was delicious. The nachos have real fried tortillas the chips!!

Amazing selection of typical and surprising dishes from south of the border. Service is always impeccable and the ambience, though a little loud during rush times, is pleasant. Great margaritas too!!

Yes, there are several. The cost will depend on whether people order from the menu or if you serve, for instance, fajitas for everyone. Generally, prices are $10-15 for lunch and $15-25 for dinner. Be aware that portions, in... More
