“Charming venue, but mediocre service and food.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 March 2012

Although it is a charming venue in the heart of Houston's Old Second Ward, the food and service are pretty mediocre.
There are much better places for Mexican food in Houston that are not as crowded. The table are too close together.

“The Real Ninfa's!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 March 2012

The best out of all the Ninfa's hands down! Great service and great atmosphere. You will always run into somebody you know and the enchiladas are amazing!

“Authentic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 March 2012

Went here with my Intensivist's Company, and it was great. I had read the reviews and went to their website prior to leaving for Houston, and I wanted to know what to expect, because in NC we only have basic Mexican, nothing as authentic as Ninfa's. The food was wonderful, and the portions were huge. When I walked in the front door, it was like walking in your grandma's kitchen. There were people there patting out tortillas, I thought I had gone in the wrong door. Get the beef fajitas, but stay away from the tomatillo sauce unless you like it so hot that you immediately start sweating. There was a great time had by all and there were at least 20 in our party.

“Great Authentic Tex-Mex Food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 March 2012

Ninfa's is everything that Tex-Mex should be, flavorful, colorful, filling and just a bit naughty.
