Authentic Tex Mex, served hot and fast! Every time I have been to Armenta's, it's been crowded, but we've always gotten a seat and have been waited on quickly. Eating outdoors on the back patio is nice, except when it's blazing hot outside...even then they have the mist system which helps. I always seem to try something different and have... More

The patio was nice, the inside restaurant is small but it works. Fajitas were great, carne asada was great. Salsa is good & fresh but Very Hot! Overall, good food & good service. We have been twice in a week.

Very small with outside seating and inside. Authentic Mexican food, nice price, good quantity. Out of the way on a side street worth looking for and waiting for.

House salsa was a bit spicier than the norm and tasted a bit off, but the pork chops were some of the best i have ever had.

Just about every time we have been to San Angelo, Tx to visit family, we go to Armentas. The authentic Mexican is the best we have had in the area. The menu has some of the regular and expected Mexican fare, plus some interesting specials. I highly recommend Armentas!

I'm not from Texas and found Armenta's on Trip Advisor three years ago. This is a must-stop every time I'm in San Angelo now. I've never ordered the same dish twice and I've never been disappointed. Atmosphere and food are outstanding. I highly recommend.

As soon my flight landed in San Angelo, I knew were I was going to have lunch. Its been almost two years since my last review of this place and they still dominate the Mexican restaurant industry in this town. Chips and salsa are delicious , their menu is impressive with a great variety of local Mexican dishes. Highly recommended... More

Went here a few times because the food is supposed to be good but the service is awful. Had to get my own silverware and not once did the waitress offer my family refills. The food is mediocre and has little flavor. Disappointed

Armentas has been around for a good while. Known for great food and atmosphere, the restaurant has been closed for over a month for a fresh and much needed facelift. My son and I went yesterday for breakfast. We were happy to see the new booths, flat screen tvs, and a cleaned up look; however the service was poor, and... More

The business is small and crowded but they serve good food for both breakfast and noon meals. I would recommend it.
