Decent Mexican, open on a sunday!

Good find for a Sunday night. Small place, but had no problem seating a family of 8 quickly. Big portions with good flavor. A good value. Not in the best neighborhood.

If you want breakfast food or refusal meal of the lunch menu they'll fix you up! They don't hesitate to serve you a beer at 0800. This place is always busy!

If one is ravig about THIS, you need to go to Pecos or Odessa Tx and eat Rex Mex. Enchiladas are made with chili powder, not pods. Food lacks flavor and hot sauce is like a can of tomato paste with a little jalapeno blended in. All I can really saw is Ewwwww for the whole experience.

One of the best restaurants in San Angelo. If you go to San Angelo you really should make time to eat here.

I eat the stuffed bell pepper plate special every Friday at Francos. Best stuffed peppers anywhere. I also eat the guiso plate special every other Thursday. Exceptional giuso!

I visited San Angelo, Texas in April 2015. I had the pleasure of eating at Francos. Oh my goodness! This was such a treat. If you love Mexican food, you need to eat here. I highly recommend it. I learned that this was one of my Grandma's & Great Aunt's & Cousin's favorite restaurants. I now know why. Their food... More

Moved away from San Angelo couple of years ago, miss it terribly because of this place. The best food in town! Small, quick paced, excellent food, friendly service. The Franco special is my favorite! Can't wait to go back just to visit Franco's!

My husband and I like to grab an early breakfast here, it is great for couples, as the inside is small and cozy. I like the French toast with syrup, he prefers the juevos rancheros. If you're going to stop by for lunch, order the cincos nachos. Piled high with cheese, beans, meat, onions and guac! Yum!

One of the mainstay restaurants in San Angelo. I have visited this establishment on numerous occasions and it is pretty consistent in terms of food quality. The prices have crept up significantly in the past couple of years, making it on the fringe as far as quality/quantity/ value is concerned. Still, I consider Franco's to be in the top 5... More

Franco's ALWAYS has a waiting line, because anyone who lives here knows it is the best Mexican Food on town. If you like enchilada's, the red sauce and onions on cheese enchilada are as good as it gets. And if you order them "el montado" (Mexican style with eggs on top), you have just hit the ball out of the... More
