The food is very very good, but it's small building is what keeps us from going often. It's my favorite place to get cheese enchiladas and I love their salsa, but my husband has some PTSD issues from the military and the small space which is usually packed full of people really give him anxiety. Other than the fact I... More

Went with family to the small place I saw on the side of the road just down from The Chicken Farm Art Center. It has American and Mexican food. They serve food all day to include breakfast from 8 am to 11 pm. The children's menu only had four choices, but our kids split a hamburger and homemade fries from... More

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
