Every day we continue a wonderful
tradition by serving you and your family with the same affection
and quality that our founder, Ninfa Rodriguez Laurenzo, established
in 1973. Known to everyone as "Mama", her legacy
began in a small 10-table restaurant on Navigation, in Houston.
Using her own pots and pans, she created this world-renowned
tradition of serving great food and delicious Margaritas.
In time, the food and atmosphere
changed Houston's taste for Mexican food - no small accomplishment
in a city where Tex-Mex has almost a religious status. Not
known to many people, Ninfa's introduced Texas and eventually
the world to fajitas.
In fact, Ninfa's has been certified
by numerous publications and has received national recognition
as the place where fajitas were first served to the general
public. Ninfa's is also recognized for her creation of the
delicious and popular Avocado and Tomatillo Green sauce,
which is now copied, but never perfected, by many other restaurants
Ninfa's left us a legacy that
is about more than just wonderful food - she taught us to
embrace everyone around us as family. Through her actions
she showed just how much one person can do in this world,
and how each of us can touch the lives of so many people.
We at Ninfa's pledge to continue
the established tradition set by out Founder. We pledge to
continue to serve the same great food with the same great
service our patrons expect.
Thank you for joining us at
Ninfa's. We hope you enjoy a wonderful evening of great food,
service and caring attention. After all, that's how Mama
would have wanted it.
Sit back, relax, and to begin,
may we suggest you savor one of our award-winning Ninfaritas.
