“Very local and delicious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

Some of the best margaritas around! Carne Asada and Pork Carnitas are our favorites. Many family members work here and service is always excellent. Francisco has opened another location in Carson City, which is a tribute to his success. Portions are generous so we always have go-boxes to take home terrific food and put it into our Mexican soup. Yum!

“Good margarita”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2014

Average food, crispy tacos were in a shell like they have at fast food places instead of fried in house, but the chicken inside was quite good. I liked the rice, no pesky mixed vegetables thrown in. Good margarita. Cute atmosphere. Nice service.

“Best tamale ever!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2014

My dinner at Fraciisco’s Mexican Restaurant turned into several meals. I ordered the chalupa/tamale combo which came with rice and beans. The tamale was my main focus and I had no room for the chalupa, that was my lunch for the following day. It was a relaxed meal served in a family friendly atmosphere. It was all wonderful! This is actually the restaurant located on 1200 S. Stewart in Carson City.

“Best Mexican Food in Carson Valley”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

Excellent place to eat - anytime of day or evening. Chips and Salsa are wonderful, great guacamole and to die for Margaritas. Owners Francisco and Marisol and their son Francy are excellent hosts. They have recently opened a second Franciscos in Carson City and it is just as good. Our favorites are the cheese and onion enchiladas and the beef tacos. Best anywhere. We are regulars.
