When our food came out they had given my son a steak taco instead of the crunchy beef taco he ordered. A happy mistake for most but my son doesn't like steak. They quickly corrected the mistake and took great care of us through out...More

My wife and I had dinner at Ninfa's one evening while on a getaway to Waco. I LOVE the building structure, and the decor. The food was right on par, with abundant serving sizes. Guess we were in Texas.. 😊

Fast service all around. Seated very quickly. After we ordered our food we had it in almost no time. Wasn't as much of a fan of the complimentary salsa that came with the chips. Overall very high quality.

The reason this gets high reviews is the location and the popularity. The restaurant itself is pretty neat to look at. The food is typical Mexican food, and a little overpriced. I'm good for visiting once, but I can see why there are regulars. They...More
