Just great food

Each and every time I eat at Armenta's it is a real delight. Good food, good and friendly service. Numerous names are given to this delight, enchiladas montada, stacked enchiladas but at Armenta's look for New Mexico style enchiladas. They are wonderful and do not forget to add the egg.

This is a family-run restaurant we have frequented for nearly 20 years. The food is always made fresh and is delicious. The taco carbon is one of my favorites. Love the table salsa also!

This place never fails to please. Enchiladas - tres colores - red sauce, green, and white; absolute delight! Love the beans and rice. Plates are bubbling hot when they arrive. Guac is generous, cheap, and fresh! Just delicious. Treat yourself to some real Tex-Mex at Armenta's. Regularly. PS Waiting for relocation of Cakes in a Cup for more fabulous desserts... More

I eat here weekly. Can't get enough of the Monterrey chicken enchiladas. Hubby loves the steak ranchero, and his diabetes is adversely affected after eating it. It's a win, win for us.

Good food. Location was iffy at best. They had beer but no real margaritas. They had something called wine ritas but we didn't try them. Service was good. Able to flag down our waitress when we needed something because it wasn't very big inside. One of our dinners came out wrong and it had to be remade so not everyone... More

We often grab lunch here because it's close to my husbands work. (Usually chicken enchilada's because they are so good!) We always sit on the patio. I appreciate their speedy service. Food is fresh and hot hot hot when it arrives to the table. We can get in and out in 30 minutes no problem.

One thing you can always tell by how good a restaurant is by how crowded the parking lot is. Yes it is a small restaurant but it is always crowded. Exceptional food! Authentic Mexican food! Love, love!!!

Armenta's is a place all its own. From the unique outdoor patio to the comfy dinning area, there isn't much not to love! The service is always spot on and your tea glass is never dry. The outdoor patio can be enjoyed year round with the fans and misters or the heaters. The beer is cold and the food is... More

Wow this place is great for breakfast. Worth the drive. My wife had the chorizo and egg, I had the huevos mexicano with a side of chicharon. The beans, homemade tortilla chips and the tortillas were great. Good coffee too. This place is down the street from the Fort and Downtown. Start here. Thank you

After eating at this restaurant several times, I can honestly say it might be one of my favorite Mexican food places. The food is always dependable and the service is always good. My favorite part is the amount of choices for enchiladas you can order. There are quite a few more sauces than most places, and they are always good.... More
