From the moment you walk into the door, you are made to feel welcome. The beautiful art work on the walls give it a gallery feel. The tables are covered with white cloths with matching white napkins. High dollar, right? No. The menu with its many choices are all reasonably priced. Everything is fresh and beautifully presented. The staff is... More

This is a place my wife really likes. Yesterday was my first visit. The location is in the old downtown area. The building is an old limestone rock building with wooden floors. Both elements create a nice atmosphere. The service was very good. The lunch menu is largely sandwiches, salads and soups. They also have daily specials. I opted for... More

I have eaten lunch at Francisco's MANY times and have never been disappointed. I love their chicken salad sandwiches, it is very light with a hint of sweet, probably the most flavorful chicken salad I have ever had. Their tortilla soup is quite tasty also. I usually eat outside, inside can be a little noisy. I have had dinner there... More

Friends hag frequently mentioned Francisco's and I always assumed it was the quaint cafe on the corner that had nice outdoor dining. Little did I know or expect such a good menu, wine selection and service. The fried oyster nachos and steak tampicano were awesome. My wife shared the ahi tuna with a friend and they were both satisfied. A... More

Francisco's is located in old town Kerrville. As a native of Kerrville, I can tell you that the location was called the Sport Shop when I was a kid back in the 60s. Never mind about that, suffice it to say that Francisco's is a wonderful place to have a nice dinner in a relaxed atmosphere.

My last visit to Grape Juice is my last. This time we re-visited Franciscos and were very pleased. Great wine selection and the salads, sandwiches, lunches were great. They didn't hesitate to accommodate any request, i.e., bread, chips, etc., unlike Grape Juice who charged for 4 small pieces of over toasted bread and grumbled when asked for butter. A little...

Smaller selection on the menu than what I like but the food was good, and I liked the fact that they cater to those on diets. Lunch is a busy time so going early or later then 12 noon plays to your benefit. Service was awesome, and enjoyed the bright atmosphere.

Enjoyed the welcome on entry and the knowledgable waiter we had. Fun to look at the art work around the room and we could people watch out the window as well. Food was goo, would eat here again.
