Great service, fresh hot tortilla chips that just kept coming, excellent queso and salsa. Hubby really enjoyed his steak. I had the sour cream chicken enchiladas which were also very good.

My husband suggested this place. The food in my opinion was fantastic. It is small, but for me when the place is small, they cook their food with love...if that makes sense. The wait staff are on it...love tipping good people who do their job with a smile.

We found Armenta's with our Tripadvisor app when visiting ASU over spring break. A lovely little restaurant with a very nice patio area. Food was very good as was the service! Good chips and salsa.

Probably the best Mexican food in town. They have an extensive menu, and I have yet to have anything that is anything less than amazing. They have an amazing breakfast as well, food is always hot and perfectly prepared. Family owned, great service.

We are always looking for a good breakfast. I looked on Yelp and found Armentas. It is close to downtown and kind of off the beaten track. The restaurant offers Mexican type breakfasts that are fairly basic in nature. We came in about three minutes before the kitchen changed over to lunch and the waitress made sure we got breakfast...

We were warned that we might have to wait for a table, so we were prepared for that. What annoyed me was that in the 15-20 minutes we had to stand and wait, not a single employee acknowledged us or said a word, despite the fact that multiple waitresses had to walk right by us to get back and forth....

...if you are passing through and need a great meal before going on. We were getting cranky and needed something good and fast and Armenta's fit the bill. Well, it doesn't look like much both outside and inside, but just wait until you taste the food. Chicken tacos were really good. Also, both The Armenta's and Felipe specials were very... More

Authentic Mexican food with great customer service! Try to stop every time we're in San Angelo. Better than any chain joint or some of the more mainstream places.

Great find in San Angelo. Some of the best mexican food I have had. Kind of a cramped dining space, but the food and service were excellent. The beans and rice were particularly really good, which is something that would usually go unnoticed at a mexican restaurant. You can't go wrong with the enchiladas verdes.
