Solid Mexican food

We enjoyed our meal at Francisca's. It's a very solid Mexican restaurant. Nothing super fancy or unbelievable but nothing bad either. Service was fine as well.

Authentic Mexican food prepared where you can watch it happening. Great wait staff, good food, helpful employees. You can order what you want and they will prepare it. Very accommodating.

We found it in a small mall without too much difficulty. The food in remarkable. I mean +++! This is not an elegant restaurant, not the Ritz Carlton. But the service is excellent and the food is divine. Go for the pork dishes, but I'm sure everything else is spectacular. Great hospitality.

I did not know that such genuine kindness existed in the hospitality industry. Upon walking into Francisca's for dinner, my family and I were greeted with a sincerity that we thought no longer existed. We watched our waiter greet by first names those customers he new and greeted unfamiliar patrons with a genuine hello. The food was great! The service... More

I resisted my husband's desire to get a quick bite at a Q**** chain in Farmington and knew that there had to be something better. Francisca's fit the bill. Friendly server and delicious tamale and chile relleno for me and huevos for my husband. Chips and salsa outstanding, too. Take the extra few minutes to find this friendly place with... More

We stopped here looking for a hole in the wall, local restaurant. This was a nice place with a very friendly host who explained about the difference in red and green chiles. I had the chili rellenos with the green chilis and really enjoyed it. Its a slow heat that creeps up on you... good stuff. The host was very... More

Small FAMILY run authentic and delicious. Every item made in the kitchen. Tamale was the best I ever had. In a small strip center. Don't miss this one. The only draw back is no alcohol. But please don't let this keep you from a great meal!

After a week of dealing with a cold, I wanted something spicy to help clear up my head. My boyfriend took me here, one of his favourite places for lunch during the week. I had the chili rellenos (my favourite dish) with green chili. Everything was tasty, hot, and fresh. The host looks like an intimidating guy, but he is... More
