If you find yourself in Houston and looking for a Mexican restaurant there are LOTS of choices. If you are looking to get out of the hustle and noise of the city and don't mind a slightly longer drive, you should head out to Ninfa's on Navigation. Easy parking, quiet neighborhood, and plenty of outdoor seating (just fine after the sun goes down). The meal starts with chips and salsa, not so original BUT Ninfa's has a creamy tomatillo salsa that comes with the very tasty tomato salsa that I think we ate 8+ small bowls of! Yes, 8! If you are thinking Tres Leches for dessert you may want to stop after a few baskets of chips (we did NOT and brought our dessert home for later). As I like to eat local when traveling, I chose the grilled Redfish and it was DElish. Cooked perfectly with some white rice and a bed of grilled fresh vegetables. Don't forget the Tres Leches dessert.

I am not sure how this place survives except on a LONG LONG past reputation. Chips were good but sauce was cold as in just out of refrigerator. We had the world famous fajitas and they were beyond tough. THEY WERE TOUGH! Terrible! The flour tortillas were cold and it seemed like maybe left over from days past? Edges of tortillas were thick and chewy almost like something from a bag left on a counter too long.
I wish the old Ninfa's were back. This place doesn't even resemble a good ole NINFA's dinning experience. It is running on days and a name in the past.

Food was amazing. Service a bit slow for a week night. We sat out on the patio so we may have been a bit forgotten out there. Will try the indoor dining room next time.

Had dinner there while in town for a convention. The meal was great and so was the margarita! The salsa and quest were very good. Service was a little slow but that was probably because the restaurant was packed. They also allowed plate sharing.
