We had Pechuga Gratinada and deluxe beef nachos. Big servings - enough for two meals and the hand tossed tortillas were yum yum yum. Would definitely recommend the restaurant.

We were told it would be a half hour wait but it was actually more like 10 minutes if that. I read other reviews and was not expecting much even though very well rated. Many complained. Of poor service and average food. We were greeted by a waiter whose name is Connally. He asked about drinks and mentioned their specialty... More

I have been to several different Ninfa's in other cities, but this is one of the best! We decided to have a late lunch at this location. On arrival the place looked like a war zone, but was quickly cleared and we were seated. All of the food and service was wonderful! I highly recommend Ninfa's!!

Average food. Not authentic. Average service. We waited forever for our ticket and then again forever waiting on our change.

Salsas were really flavorful - but rest of lunch specials were lackluster. Chicken dry and not seasoned. Tortilla soup with fresh mushrooms and no avocados ? Broth not tasty at all. Won't be back

I'm sorry but there are non-Mexican restaurants that make better Mexican food. Service was okay. Wasn't real clean. Not a great experience. I've been several times to one in San Antonio and the food is great. Waco needs a cook.

Our group ate here during a small trip to Waco, on the recommendation of our shuttle driver, and we weren't disappointed. Staff was friendly and helpful, great atmosphere! The cadillac margaritas were SMOOTH! Chips and salsa great and addictive (a bit spicy). I ordered the crawfish enchiladas recommended by the driver, and they were so good I wanted to lick... More

In Waco on business and stopped in after being recommended by person in my flight into Dallas. I got the 1/2 order of Pechuga Alfonzo. It was great!! Tons of flavor very different than traditional Mexican dish but was wonderful. Also got and order of Chile con Queso with beef. Also very good. Will definitely be back.
