Group outing for our Holiday Work party, so there were approximately 16 of us. Very loud, if you're in a large group, you're only going to be talking to those near you. Food is good, service was a bit lacking.

Did you know that authentic salsa is actually warm. I called my husband, who is Mexican, and asked why they served warm salsa and not cold. He explained that if it is warm that it is super fresh! The rest of the food was really good, but the salsa is what took the cake.

The red salsa was good like always. I never know what to order. Got the Riveria. It was pretty good. I got beans and tacos. Not my favorite place but I came with the family.

I stopped in for a quick meal and decided to take the whole family in for Saturday lunch. We loved the Margaritas and Mexican Martinis. I had the chalupa the first time I came in then the deluxe nachos and they were really good, a whole meal. The place was packed, will for sure be going back and would definitely... More

On the outside it looks pretty small.... but when you walk in there are high ceilings and a nice atmosphere. We eat here every time we visit Waco. The chicken fajitas are very good. The menu is a little pricey though... something crazy like $11 for queso.

We ordered the chicken soup. It was huge chunks of chicken appearing to be in the broth they were boiled in. Oh yes there was also a sprig of parsley. Worse soup I've ever tried to eat.

I LOVE this restaurant. The food is wonderful and the margaritas are to die for. A jog down Franklin Ave. to 3rd street will get you there. It is nestled in a shopping are that is usually very crowded. When the parking lot of full, there is more parking across the street. Even though there are lots of customers, they... More

This restaurant is beautiful! The food and service are great, but the main reason I love this restaurant is the atmosphere! It is lovely and relaxing.

I was in Waco for business and Ninfa's was recommended. I got the HALF ORDER (picture attached) Pechuga Alfonso with all the meats as recommended by our sever but no mushrooms. Holy cow, it was fabulous. The wine sauce was simply delicious. I could not eat it all so I can't imagine the WHOLE order. Service was outstanding as well.

Thank amberd865
