    Tex-Mex gold, people. From the margaritas to the fajitas, this original is the standard by which all other Tex-Mex restaurants are measured. [Eater 38 Member]

    Love the Queso Flameado! Order it every time I'm here. Fajitas are also great.

    The fajitas aren't fatty, they are juicy and flavorful. Green sauce is good. Great ritas!

    Few restaurants live up to the hype surrounding them. Ninfa's on Navigation is every bit as good as people say it is. No matter what you choose, it will be delicious.

    Ask for a side of pechuga gravy to eat with the fajitas and shrimp diablo

    Ask for the carrots - they are the wonderful escabeche-style carrots that you can, and should, put on everything. Eat your veggies!

    Lives up to the hype. Chimichangas, tacos and tamales are top notch. Service is unbelievable and parking is ample.

    Sangria Margaritas are awesome! I have never had anything that isn't good here. Our favorites are the Tacos Al Carbon with Fajita Beef and the Chimichanga with Fajita Beef!

  • Courtney B.

    SO GOOD! The enchiladas suissas are my favorite. Do yourself a favor and don't even bother going to the other Ninfa's locations; they don't even compare.

    Courtney B. · December 31, 2012
  • Randy S.

    This is hands down some of the best texmex i have ever had. Ritas are ok, lots of alcohol not much flavor. The queso flameado and the tejas platter were awesome.

    Randy S. · December 12, 2012
  • Murray N.

    They are currently servicing duck tacos off the menu. They are phenomenal.

    Tres Leches! So stupid good! A classically delicious take, but topped with marshmallow fluff and lightly torched. I would share a picture, but it was halfway down my throat before I had the thought.

    Best Mexican food in Texas. Amazing Margs. Fresh, handmade tortillas will blow your mind. The aguacate-tomatillo house salsa is unmatched by any house salsa I've ever eaten.

    Becky R. · June 18, 2013

    Amazing off-menu appetizer: Queso a la Parrilla. Yuuuuum!
