Ninfas provides your standard TEX Mex food. The service was friendly and quick. The food was ok. Just a normal place to get Mexican food. Very convenient to Hotel Indigo, Magnolia, and Spice Village.

Good food...good drinks (margaritas)...the salsas were very good, especially the tomatillo salsa. We had the chicken mole and the cheese enchiladas...good tasting! Average service. Good ambiance...in a reclaimed warehouse.

Long wait even though many tables were empty. Food is average. Wait staff is below average. Lots of people in town this weekend and they should have been better prepared.

We didn't feel it was overpriced like others have mentioned. Our server was very friendly. There was plenty of seating. There was plenty of free parking. The food is just average. Nothing to write home about.

The atmosphere is a 10. The food is a 1. Service was great. We sat on the patio which was lovely. Quesadillas were passable, but everything else was awful. Go to Chuy's instead.
