As you walk into the restaurant, you notice the grill up front that makes the fresh torillas. You also notice the large number of wait staff that hovers around. Unfortunately, even with that many waiters/waitresses, service wasn't very fast. My chips and salsa didn't arrive...More

Upon my arrival in Houston, I was anticipating all sorts of great food being such a culturally extravagant city. The food I had the highest hopes for,of course, was the Tex Mex cuisine. Many people raised my hopes higher than I enjoy because I often...More

The restaurant "THE ORIGINAL" is huge and it was packed on a Tuesday night! It has a full bar and their Margaritas are the best! I ordered a Chef's special of octopus with potatoes. It was cooked to perfection. Service was excellent.

If your going to go to Ninfa's you have to go to the original one here on Navigation St. Its still family owned so the food is great. The other Ninfa's are sell out and the quality is not near as good.

First, I would recommend you make a reservation, especially on a Saturday night. The front check-in wasn't very good at estimating wait times. We had the beef fajitas and they were OK but instead of having a lot of flavor they mostly tasted oily. The...More

I really do not know. I'd call to ask first. I didn't notice any while we waited. Good luck!
Do you have a separate room for a party of 50 for a rehearsal dinner for Nov 20th at 7 pm? How much down payment would I need to reserve a room?

I have never seen a separate room for private parties. You should call them and inquire.
