I have eaten here on many occasions and the waitstaff is always very friendly and accommodating for kids. The food is incredible though-and that's saying something when there are about a zillion Mexican restaurants in this town! I always get the potato and egg plate. The tortillas are to die for too.

Excellent breakfast. Good service despite how busy she was. Good coffee and really good eggs. The dining area is cramped and alittle loud

We were amazed when our bill totaled $14.00 plus change for two large lunch specials. (Go M-F for these). The chili relleno was very yummy and the cheese enchiladas were delicious too. Be sure to ask for the special hot sauce.. has much more flavor and a kick! Superb service, great sweet tea too..enjoy!

I checked San Angelo listings for Mexican food since I would be visiting the area for s few days. Mexican food was first on the list. I found Franco's and read the extremely good ratings. I went with a military buddy - friends for 49 years. It looks like a common, small cafe from outside and inside, but the surprise... More

At first glance, you may be hesitant to go into this restaurant. Don't be. It is absolutely delicious. I wasn't a huge fan of the chips/salsa but everything else was so perfect it just didn't matter. We had about ten people there with every different kind of meal you can have and EVERYONE loved it. I had cheese enchiladas and... More

I just moved back to San Angelo and remember how good Franco use to be. Well it still continues to serve good food. We order the special of the day which happened to be the Fish Plate. WoW, it tasted great and it was just to much for us. We were served to large pieces of fried catfish and two... More
