We visit Waco about once a year and make a point to eat at Ninfa's. Authentic tex mex with a festive atmosphere, great margaritas and excellent wait staff. Nothing bad to say.

If New Mexico food is too hot, but you like jalapeños, and TexMex style food, this is an old standby, still authentic. Never disappoints, and great margaritas. Good chips and salsa.

We heard a lot of good things about this restaurant, so we decided to give it a try. It was awful. We were a table of 2 and neither liked the salsa or our entrees. We will not be back here.

Friendly people on a Friday afternoon, but food was not tasty. We wouldn't go back, nachos are a joke.
