Houston Press' Description

The Laurenzo clan of Ninfa's fame delivers the Tex-Mex (and the margaritas) you expect -- and then some. Crabmeat quesadillas are spectacular; fajitas, more than respectable. But food isn't this cantina's main draw; it's the generous, friendly service and an atmosphere designed to make diners relaxed and comfortable.

    This is my favorite mexican food in Houston! Eating here is an event. It is ALWAYS packed on the weekends - it's great to mingle at the bar before you are seated. The menu is HUGE but if you are looking to go big, or guys- impress your date- get the Gourmet Deluxe Grill Parrilladas! It's everything- chicken, beef, shrimp, lobster - all piled high on a grill on your table!

    Their weekend breakfasts are the best, but so are their brisket enchiladas. We suggest asking for the green rice on your combo plate, it's really tasty. [Eater 38 Member]
