All the locals know the original Ninfa’s is the best location for fajitas, queso, margaritas and homemade tortillas, so rather than opening another franchise location, the owners brought the original to Uptown.
A Tex-Mex taqueria, The Original Ninfa’s Uptown features all the Ninfa’s favorites like steak fajitas that “launched the fajita craze,” tacos al carbon, handmade tamales and the original Ninfarita, which the restaurant touts as “Houston’s most favorite margarita.”
As an homage to their original location on Navigation, the restaurant still hosts a tortilla-making station where guests can watch the magic happen. Beautifully designed with a modern Tex-Mex vibe, the walls are decorated with photos “Mama” Ninfa Laurenzo. Either location of The Original Ninfa’s is a must stop while in Houston.
