This is one of the smallest restaurants I've ever been but don't let that dissuade you. They also have a nice patio if inside seating isn't your preference. Armenta's does a good job of providing dishes you're familiar with but they are executed differently than your average Tex-Mex. It's kind of hard to describe but I can say you won't... More

This is a place that usually only locals know go to. Updated from its humble beginnings though still tight and quaint dining. The food is always good and all authentic. Always a great place to eat Mexican food.

This place was recommended by a local for being the most authentic mexican places in town. It's a hole in the wall cafe that is a GEM! The chips are hot, salsa is fresh and a little spicy, and the guacamole with Pico de Gallo was the best I have ever had. Park across the street and enjoy the friendly... More

We arrived in San Angelo late on Friday and asked our hotel concierge where we should eat. He suggested Armenta's. Located off the beaten path of town, we found Armenta's to be a charming Mexican food establishment. Service was fast and friendly, the complimentary chips and salsa were delicious, and our meals arrived within 15 minutes of sitting down. We... More

I enjoy a good hole-in the wall promising authentic tastes at a fair price, so Armenta's looked like a winner. The menu had classic favorites and some local twists. I had the color enchiladas. there were three enchiladas, cheese, chicken and beef each with a different sauce of a different color. It was plated sloppy and drippings over the sides... More

Mexican food is generally good, but good Flan is hard to find, however at Armenta's they have the best I have ever tasted. This restaurant has recently added an outdoor cantina where you can eat lunch and dinner too.

I've eaten here for years. It is one of the most popular Mexican restaurants in San Angelo and I can see why. Be prepared for a small dining room, but it is worth the wait (if you have too).

Armentas has long been a favorite place for Mexican food. But recently we had the opportunity to enjoy the experience on the patio. Definitely adds to the experience. Now not only do you get the best Mexican food and their exceptional service, but you don't feel hemmed in or stuffy and the live music really adds to the experience. The... More

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.
