Our Review: We visited the location in the Galleria Mall. It is located on the “kid’s side” of the mall near Nordstroms, Gymboree and Janie and Jack.  It is a sit down restaurant, but is casual and open to the mall.  No one seemed to notice when my kids made a little noise or a mess. There is a kid’s menu with lots of items. Most are $3.99 and come with a drink.

The staff was very friendly and happy to help my kids. My 4 year old had the quesadillas and my 2 year old had the chicken nuggets. They had a apple juice in huge to-go cups and refills were free. Chips and salsa were also free.

I ordered the chicken nachos for $11.99 to share with my sister. They were huge and we had extra to take home. My mom got the best bargain of the day. She ordered a side of sauteed veggies, with tortillas, and made a bunch of veggie fajitas for $2.99. This is what I’m doing next time!

One thing I noticed is that the receipt does not have a website, just lists When I did a Google search, the only website I could find was was MamaNinfas  at 2704 Navigation Blvd. This website also says, “The Original Ninfa’s on Navigation is operated by Chef Alex Padilla and Legacy Restaurants ( It is not affiliated with any other restaurant which may be licensed to use the name “Ninfa’s” in some manner.”. Anyone know about this Original Ninfa’s?
