This is an old, loud, and large restaurant with lots of atmosphere. Great margaritas and redfish tacos. I've enjoyed each time I dined here. Huge portions, too big to me. I enjoy the food, but be aware that conversation can be difficult when dining here.

Went to dinner here with business associates. The food was good… Not the best I've had, but certainly far from the worst. Service was acceptable, prices were right. Atmosphere is lively. Can't give five stars because there was nothing exceptional, but wouldn't hesitate and recommending.

A typical joint for basic Mexican fair. The food is ordinary, but service folk are nice, but usually folks don't go there for that. I scanned the menu and got only the basic of dishes and very little of my choice for the dollar value. Don't be surprised that you may leave the place hungrier then when you came in?

Had been craving good Mexican food and decided to visit the original Ninfas on Navigation. Our table had beef tacos al carbon, and combo plates with cheese enchiladas, beef tamale, guacamole, and gigantic crispy beef tacos. Best Spanish rice in town, and also love the borracho beans. Only negative is that we had one hard of hearing person in our... More

We took a group of 22 people for dinner. The place was a bit crowded, but it was nice. The wait staff were great in accommodating such a group. The food was good.

We arrived around 5:30 on A Saturday before rush hour with a party of 6. The hostess told us it would be a 45 minute wait due to reservations. We were told to wait in the bar. We headed to the bar and were going to order a drink and possibly an appetizer and were told by a waiter that... More

Came in to Ninfa's last night to celebrate a birthday. The food was great as always and the servers are nice. This is definitely the best Tex-Mex food in the country, with everything on the menu being a great option. I do highly recommend the enchiladas. The margaritas are perfect - not too much lime or sugar. Ninfa's is always... More

Ninfas was the premier Mexican restaurant way before all the popular Mexican places got started. The place on Navigation was the place to go for great food. The menu is still full of all the favorites and the quality hasn't suffered. Don't miss a chance to visit the original.

Our first time here over the Christmas holiday and we loved it! We have been coming to Houston for many years to visit family, and somehow this place has eluded us. Never again--it is on the permanent restaurant roster moving forward! We tried the carnita and the tacos al pastor. Both were second to none. My husband said the carnitas... More
