Good food, great customer service – The location makes the restauarant a little tricky to find and the location is a little dated, but the food and service make up for that. We had a coupon so decided to try it out. We'll definitely go back again..
Best House Margarita's in Austin!! – Love it, love it, love it! The food is great, the wait staff is great, the bartender is EXCELLENT!!! You must try the ninfarita. It is the best house margarita in town. They have a happy hour buffet with a drink purchase from 4-6. Can't beat it!
Best Mexican food I've had in a long time. – After checking out The Domain, my wife suggested this Mexican resteraunt on 183 just west of I-35. She had been there once before with a friend, this was my first time. We had excellent service. Both had frozen Margaritas that were served in a stem Margarita glass, not a water glass like many places do. I had La Zona Rosa, my wife had Chile Rellenos. We will definitely be comming back.
My favorite Mexican in Austin – Best Mexican in Austin. Only one location left in Austin. Great fajitas, enchiladas, also try a cheese puff--or order the El Rey. Fabulous. Amazing green sauce for your chips. Super strong margaritas.
delicious, fast, wonderful – I visited this location on a busy Saturday for dinner. Pappasito's was unbelievably crowded, so we hit up this Ninfa's location. Our dinner experience was wonderful: we were seated immeadiately, our server was attentive but not annoying, and the food was DELICIOUS. I recommend the Primavera enchiladas. I usually get cheese enchiladas at Pappasito's, but these vegetable enchiladas at Ninfa's were divine. The rice that came with it was unexpectedly flavorful. The queso is better than that at Pappasito's, and of course the green sauce is great. I will be back whenever I'm in Austin.
Scary Service! – There were only 5 other tables in this restaurant yet our server took 30 minutes to give us our check and bring us our credit card slip! This was all done w/o a thank you, have a nice afternoon, NOTHING but silence. All he did was take our order and refill my drink once. Then when I didn't leave a tip (why would you tip for service that made you late back to work?!?!?!) he CAME OUT TO MY CAR TO CONFRONT ME!!! He told me to roll my window down and STOOD IN FRONT OF MY CAR!!!! Do not go this this restaurant! Then, when I called the manager, he said NOTHING, like it wasn't a big deal!!! I was shocked and disturbed by this! Do NOT go to the restaurant unless you enjoy crummy service and being harassed by your server!
TERRIBLE, SLOW SERVICE – We went to Ninfa's on 183 for an early dinner. There was maybe a total of 6 tables in there. We stood at the front door and were ignored for some time before we were seated. That should have been our first clue.
If took FOREVER to get our WARM drinks. Service was aweful! We noticed other tables were having the same problem. Then we sat there forever just to get our check. My husband had to go find our waitress to give her our credit card. Sorry Mama Ninfa, never again!!
