Great Mexican

The food here is authentic, and there is a lot of it. Our favorite salsa in town. Fast service, friendly staff. Casual, I would not suggest this place for Prom or an Anniversary.

Stopped here for lunch with co-workers while on business in Socorro. Had a beef enchilada with red chile and rice and beans. Tasted ok, but the red chile wasn't that hot or flavorful. Was hoping for better. Chips and salsa were okay. Sopapilla's at the end were good like others have said. Service was okay but definitely could have used... More

Our waitress was not able to efficiently cover the 4 tables at the restaurant at that time. Food was okay. Not sorry we stopped.

My husband and I are visiting Socorro on a photo tour and stopped for dinner. We both had stuffed soappapillas that were very tasty! Unfortunately, they do NOT sell alcoholic beverages. New Mexican food always tastes better with a beer or margarita!

Good chile rellenos, enchiladas, & sopapillas. Good alternative to fast food when you are driving through Socorro, New Mexico.

We were searching for anything open on New Year's Day and found Armijos. I had eaten there on several occassions over 30 years ago. The staff was friendly and the service quick. I ordered red enchildas with an egg. When it came out, it was a thing of beauty! The sauce was a brilliant red-orange and was absolutely some of... More

Hands down some of the best southwest food I've ever eaten! The staff was excellent, the menu was somewhat limited but they offered to cook almost anything if it wasn't on the menu. A family run business that really cares about it's customers.

I definitely regret my choice of eating there, the prices are average and the food is below average. There is a reason why this restaurant... More
