Server was attentive, Food was fresh, came at a good pace, and the restaurant has good atmosphere/decorations. Rice is VERY good. Highly recommend a visit!

Had dinner one night. Food (Chicken Fajita plate) was average and the chicken not so great but generally it is a good place. Very good chips and great Salsa which I liked it better than my dinner! Reasonably priced and good service. Menu is extensive and required frequent visit for a more objective opinion. Will I eat there again if... More

Great food here. Fast and cheap but authentic. Best Mexican in town. Their bottled beer is served ICE cold, so it's great in the summer.

Good food with an awesome selection. Nina's is just walking distance from my work so it's a good break to get away.

Awesome authentic Mexican food. Love the chicken burrito and my husband loves the steak chimichanga. Good nachos, fried ice cream dessert, rice, and authentic Mexican drinks.

We live locally and end up at Ninas several times a year! Bothe the Battle Creek and Augusta sites have the same menu, but BC site has alcohol.

From the reviews I had high hopes that this place would be amazing. It was beautifully decorated inside and the wait staff was very attentive. However, the salsa was terrible. We couldn't figure out what was wrong with it, but it tasted very "off" or like some ingredient was spoiled. The meals were decent, but pricey for the quality. Just... More

I live in Kalamazoo and I am willing to drive 30 minutes east to Nina's Taqueria. It is the best Mexican food I've had in this area. If you love hard/crunchy tacos you have to eat here.

Great Mexican food near downtown Battle Creek. Had the lunch special and it was excellent. Free chips and salsa were the best. Loved the decor inside, very traditional a, real eye catcher. Will a make a point of eating here again next time I'm in Battle Creek.
