Original Ninfas

Top choice mexican in Houston

Formal but friendly, this large Mexican restaurant, just east of downtown, is a true local institution. Houstonians have flocked here since the 1970s to savor the legendary shrimp diablo, tacos al carbon (beef cooked over charcoal), and handmade tamales crafted with pride. Great service, very fine salsas, and a spacious, well-shaded patio.
