“Sizzling Fajitas!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

We tried this place during a brief stay in Minden. Great find. An informal, neighborhood atmosphere where you can enjoy delicious food. My wife and I split an order of fajitas. Sizzling and delicious with tremendous flavor. And all the right accompaniments – guacamole, salsa, cheese, sour cream and tortillas. The carmelized onions and peppers on the sizzling platter provided a ton of flavor. Of course, all accompanied by delicious margaritas. A great drop-in place.

“BEST FAJITAS EVER”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

We are locals and have tried many places but Francisco's is our favorite place for Steak Fajitas. The portion is large and the seasoning is so good. The extra's to top them is so good too. I know there other menu items are delicious, but we can't seem to get past ordering the Fajitas. The margaritas are good and the staff is so nice. Always enjoyable.

“Don't pass this by!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013 via mobile

Traveling through Minden, we took a chance on Francisco's. We're so glad we did. Everything was delicious. The best chili rellanos I've had in a long time! Will definitely come back next time we're here.

“Feed Your Need for Mexican Cuisine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Used to live in the area but retired to Florida three years ago. At at Francisco's last night. The food was excellent and the service was very good. From Florida to here, two months on the road eating at many so-called Mexican restaurants and this one is the best so far. Prices are very fair too. At the very least, you will enjoy a very good, reasonably priced meal. Go there!

“Just what we've been looking for”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

We have recently moved to this area and are scoping out places to eat. We needed a good basic Mexican place, and we think this is it (we've tried others). The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly. The Margaritas are good ( or at least what I think is good) and so is the food. It seemed to be family friendly, and it was not too loud. I had the enchiladas c MOle sauce....on the sweet side, but that is the nature of the sauce. Parking was easy and free. Prices were less than what we are used to by about a buck a plate.
Minor gripes...the chips are thin, I prefer thicker, and the salsa is too hot for MY taste. We will be back!
