The Original Ninfa's on Navigation
Home of the Fajita
The slogan is bold: “The best Mexican food in Texas since Texas was in Mexico.” And there’s reason for the sense of pride at the original Ninfas on Navigation: this is the spot where Mama Ninfa Laurenzo started the nationwide fajita craze, when she stuffed a handmade flour tortilla with seasoned grilled beef. A new foodie phenomenon was born here over 40 years ago. The recipes have remained true and original over time, and Ninfas kept the culinary talent “in the family.” Current Executive Chef Alex Padilla grew up watching his mother hand make tortillas at Ninfa’s original tortilla factory, and his passion to carry on her legacy is deeply rooted. The place is known for their fajitas, enchiladas, tacos and everything in between, so you can't lose at this iconic Houston hotspot.
