Good for Sunday Breakfast Too.

I like Casa Francos. We often make a point of going to Casa Franco's for Taco Tuesday for their inexpensive tacos. Often someone will order one or two other things off the menu which is ALWAYS better than the tacos. The tacos aren't all that great, cheap, but not the best tasting. This place... read more

The food is good, the staff is very helpful. The owner is uptight and annoying. The layout is a bit tight. Go for the food and ignore the owner.

We are regulars here. It's our go to for family dinners, late night casual eating. Best Mexican food around. Servers are like family. Shrimp enchiladas and chicken tortilla soup are two of my favorites. Chicken is all white meat. Try it in a crunchy taco. Strong margaritas!

I live very close to this restaurant and decided to stop in for some inexpensive tacos for Taco Tuesday. The price was great at a dollar per taco. I ordered one chicken taco and a beer. The taco had a little bit of chicken and enough lettuce to make a side salad. The chicken was tasteless, the cheese was not... More

Excellent Tex-Nex Mexican food. My wife and I shared a giant deep fried taco. Plenty for the two of us. Last visit I had a tostada and my wife a tamale combo plate. Both dishes were excellent. Salsa fir chips,great. Chips not so great.

I had forgotten all about this place until a few weeks ago and now I have been back twice. The food is authentic and very affordable. Taco Tuesday ($1.00 taco's) is busy so get there early. The service is great and everybody is very friendly.

We go to Casa Franco at least three times a month. We are always treated as family when we arrive and the food is always excellent. On Tuesdays they have Taco Tuesday and on Wednesday night, they have a small live band. Always a fantastic experience!!!
