Best Mexican Food in San Angelo; Some of the Best, ANYWHERE

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... read more

I have been a customer here for years and the staff knows my family. We eat breakfast here every Sunday. December 21, 2014 I was eating with my family and while I was still eating the waitstaff sat strangers at my table effectively discounting my existence. I asked to speak to the owner 3 times and was just dismissed by... More

If you want a good sampling of Mexican food, you must try this restaurant. The dinning room is small and can be a little cramped. It it best to arrive for lunch or dinner early since the restaurant fills up real fast because of locals. If you like Burritos try the chicken or beef, they are big and the taste... More

Usually have to wait a while to get into the restaurant but it is worth it. Love the idea of having food made fresh and hot instead of held on a warming area. Service is always friendly and attentive. Mexican food is awesome so they will surprise you with their ability to provide you with outstanding American food as well.... More

Got here right before the dinner rush and was seated quickly. The salsa was spicy and tasty, and the stuffed peppers were very good. In the half hour I was here, it got extremely busy, and there were people waiting as I walked out. That's generally a pretty good sign. In a west Texas town full of good Mexican food,... More

This is an excellent Mexican resturant. When you live in West Texas, surrounded by Mexican resturants you have to be choosy. This is good food at great prices.
