We went here on a busy weekend. Free parking close by. Service was great. Margaritas and enchiladas were perfect.

If you love Disney, you'll love Ninfa's! Mediocre food at Disney prices. Unfortunately the food looks Mexican, but taste bland. Trust me there are real Mexican food joints in Waco- take time and search them out. By the way, they'll nickel and dime you to death on sauces and sides. Save your money and head to Orlando or Anaheim 😩

If you want crowds? This is the place! Your HDTV wanna bees are everywhere in this part of Waco, therefore they want Mexican food. Like I said, food is average and ordered a drink (yeah I like a cold drink once in a while) and don't believe there was any alcohol in it - flavored water I think. Anyway, if... More

The service, the food, the margaritas and the atmosphere rate an 11 on a scale of 1 to 10. Everything on the menu sounded so good and our final selection of shrimp tacos for me and my husband went with the taco/chili relleno combo and both dinners were delicious.

Fun atmosphere and good place to have an office party for 20-30 people. Food is good and their margaritas are delicious. Friday and Saturday nights are very busy and expect to wait a while, along with parking issues during those hours. May have to park one or two blocks away.

The food was average, lacking in flavor and being in Texas, we wished that we had chosen somewhere else with better Mexican food.

We wanted good, Texas-style Mexican food and were not disappointed. Loved the decor too. Wait staff was friendly and helpful. Get there early because it fills up fast.

It was the middle of the afternoon and we usually frequent the stores in Houston, where the original was. This was very good, but not up to the standard that we are used to. The skirt steak was very chewy, not tender as usual. Waitstaff was very prompt and good. If we're ever back in Waco we would try again.

The atmosphere and the food were awesome. I had my two toddler girls with me, and the wait staff was great with being forgiving with our mess and crazy kids. Great enchiladas, salsa, and tacos. That was all I got to sample, but overall we had a great time. Good prices and great atmosphere.
