AVOID AT ALL COSTS – This was my 2nd time visiting Ninfa's on Post Oak. I should have learned my lesson the first time. The same bartender was on duty, Maria. We ordered Shrimp Empanandas and she placed the order for Veggie Empanadas. When I told her that she placed the wrong order, she told me I am sorry there is nothing that you can do about it. Rude, poor service, the worst bartender ever. This restaurant has forgotten that the customer pays their salary. DO NOT EVER GO TO THIS RESTAURANT IF YOU WANT FOOD OR GOOD BARTENDING SERVICE. GO TO ESCALANTE'S. I have been to restaurants in Seattle, Phoenix, New York City, Atlanta, Houston, Dallas, Chicago, Toronto, Miami, Austin, San Antonio. You get the picture....this is the worst restaurant out there in the industry and I do not want you to experience what I have experienced.
Avoid at all costs – I live close to Ninfa's. Rude, poor service, bad bartender, average margarita's, enough said because you get the picture. Avoid this place even on a sunny day. go to mcdonalds across the street.
INSECT IN FOOD!! – Insect found in chips! It was a crispy critter as it had been deep fried. Manager refused to hear our complaint and insisted the "crawler" was a shrimp. I had never seen a shrimp like this before! We ask him to eat the shrimp but he refused. I guess he is not into eating "off the menu items" but he sure takes great pride in not telling the truth. The young manager was insulted by our comment and ask us to leave. He never dealt with the issue or our complaint. Eat at your own risk!
Terrible Food – I just went to this Ninfas this week. It was horrible. I love Ninfa's and this place is nothing like the Ninfa's i know and love. Nothing I got was good. The salsa, carrots, nachos and even chips were discusting. I would not recommend this place to anyone. There fajita meat is the worst I have ever eaten. I actually couldn't even eat the nasty stuff. So if you want a good Ninfa's go to the one on Westeimer. Much better!!!
NOT GOOD – I have been eating at Ninfa's for years and this is not an original Ninfa's! My sister and I went there yesterday and it was horrible! The fajitas tasted like brisket, the salsa was bland and the service was lacking, as well. The menu had the same items as the other locations, but NOTHING TASTED THE SAME! If you truely like Ninfa's, DO NOT EAT HERE! Taco Bell would have been better!
Editorial Review – Festive outpost of Houston's homegrown Mexican food chain, featuring large helpings of Tex-Mex favorites such as fajitas, enchiladas, tacos and margaritas.
Good food, decent prices – I miss the feel and ambience of the old Ninfa's across the street but ever since this place moved it has been pretty good place to eat and have a margarita. Their poblano peppers are great, drinks are pretty good too.
The atmosphere is cafeteria style (i.e. pretty boring) but the food and service are pretty good.
