Why we love it: With high ceilings and rustic vibe, Ninfa’s offers both classic and imaginative (crawfish enchiladas, anyone?) Mexican dishes in a terrific space. Founded 40 years ago by Ninfa, “Mama” Rodriguez Lorenzo, Ninfa’s still embodies her legacy of embracing everyone as family…and great margaritas.



Why we love it: Just two blocks from the Magnolia Silos, Hecho en Waco features fine Mexican Cuisine in a casual environment and a one of a kind tequila menu. We recommend enjoying their fresh guac on the patio.

Why we love it: With a 100-year history, you know they’re doing something right at Casa De Castillo. They offer a phenomenal weekend brunch with bloody mary and mimosa specials.

Why we love it: Two words: Breakfast. Burritos. Open for breakfast and lunch, Lolita’s also has a drive thru for easy morning eats.


Why we love it: Casual taco stand with covered eating and everything you want from your favorite “hole in the wall” restaurant. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Try anything “birria” and you’re sure to return.
