Fast friendly service. Amazing food! Love that Francisco is usually wandering around the restaurant. A local favorite in historic downtown Minden.

We tried this place during a brief stay in Minden. Great find. An informal, neighborhood atmosphere where you can enjoy delicious food. My wife and I split an order of fajitas. Sizzling and delicious with tremendous flavor. And all the right accompaniments – guacamole, salsa, cheese, sour cream and tortillas. The carmelized onions and peppers on the sizzling platter provided... More

We are locals and have tried many places but Francisco's is our favorite place for Steak Fajitas. The portion is large and the seasoning is so good. The extra's to top them is so good too. I know there other menu items are delicious, but we can't seem to get past ordering the Fajitas. The margaritas are good and the... More

Traveling through Minden, we took a chance on Francisco's. We're so glad we did. Everything was delicious. The best chili rellanos I've had in a long time! Will definitely come back next time we're here.

Used to live in the area but retired to Florida three years ago. At at Francisco's last night. The food was excellent and the service was very good. From Florida to here, two months on the road eating at many so-called Mexican restaurants and this one is the best so far. Prices are very fair too. At the very least,... More

We have recently moved to this area and are scoping out places to eat. We needed a good basic Mexican place, and we think this is it (we've tried others). The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly. The Margaritas are good ( or at least what I think is good) and so is the food. It seemed to be family friendly,... More

Stopped in for dinner. The restaurant is very, very casual, has very nice service and delicious authentic Mexican food. I ordered a two enchilada meal served with rice and beans, the cost was $7.95. My dinner was not only delicious, but very large. Someone in our party ordered a burrito for dinner, it was even bigger. The portions are very... More

First if all I have been eating here for years and this restaurant used to be excellent. I havent been there for about 6 months so we stopped in a couple weeks ago after Turkey Bingo. Well, there were fruit flies hovering over our table and one fell in my beer. I had the waitress replace it with a new... More

not fancy, but well worth the stop. The Carne Asada was extremely flavorful, service was superb. The Staff was friendly and we will make this a destination every time we go through Gardnerville from now on. Thanks!
