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.

I had heard that this was the place for Mexican food and I was excited to try it. The inside seating for the restaurant is very limited and the tables are crowded together. There is outside seating weather permitting. The service was fast and friendly. Unfortunately the food was about as average as I have gotten at any other Mexican... More

We planned on a light lunch so we split an order of nachos. They were very tasty. It was my wife's birthday so she ordered a piece of chocolate cake for dessert...the serving was huge. We both stuffed ourselves but still left about a quarter of the cake on the plate. We will definitely return to try other items on... More

Armenta's is without a doubt, the best Mexican food in town. Small dining room, but when weather permits, the patio seats many more. Even when it's crowded, tables turn over really quickly so you won't wait that long. Service is friendly and fast. Chips and salsa are fresh and have their own distinct, home-made flavor. I've tried pretty much everything... More
