Our family had to wait about 30 minutes for a table even at mid afternoon but the food was worth it. Being from Texas, we are pretty picky about good Tex-Mex. we were pleasantly surprised.

Right next to Spice Village, this was a good place for lunch. The building is nice to look at with huge windows, exposed ceilings, brick. The food was good - not the best Mexican we've ever had, but we were all pleased and full when we left. Service was good, too. I would recommend.

Ninfa's has really great Mexican food. I probably could stop there but...The homemade tortillas, large portions and great service are hallmarks of this restaurant. I love their fajitas- especially with their custom variations (a la Benny, for instance) with sauces, shrimp and other additions; orders for one are enough for two in most cases. My wife and I usually split... More

Busy Tuesday afternoon with not sufficient staff to handle the crowd. Had a hard time getting place settings and hot sauce. Had to wait for drink refills. Food was bland and just so-so, but we were hungry. Wish we would have looked further for another place to eat.

To begin with this restaurant was convenient to our hotel. Part of the problem with my review is we use to eat at the old Ninfa's in Houston. Today's Ninfa's must keep up with the times and the times change even though some of us don't. The restaurant was roomy, clean, and attractive. The wait staff was about average. They... More

After wasting my time at the Spice Village, we found this place on the corner of the same building. At first I was not impressed with the outside but once inside I felt like I was in Mexico. The service was quick and the food was very good. I would recommend going to the web site as the pictures says... More

The service here was terrible, the wait was definitely not worth it. The food was really gross. My friend ordered pork enchiladas and it came out with little pieces of pork chop...not carnitas. Expensive too...save your money and time.

Stopped in Waco for the night and found ourselves at Ninfa's. The restaurant has a great atmosphere! The food is crazy good. They offer warm salsa and another tomatillo style dip with chips and both were probably the best I've ever had. Especially the green tomatillo dip!! I ordered the shrimp enchiladas with a side of guacamole and I cleaned... More
