I like coming here for the menudo. It is seasoned the way I like it and served with sides of jalapeños,onions,lime or lemon, and either flour or corn tortillas. The serving is very large and I always have leftovers.

The food is very good here. The hot sauce is too mild for me but ask for the hotter hot sauce and it's perfect! Can't go wrong with food from Francos!

What can I say. If you want to eat real authentic Mexican food in San Angelo , then this restaurant is the place to dine. It's not a national fancy venue, but the food is delicious and is generally packed with a waiting line. The staff is young, courteous and professional. It did remind me of restaurants in Mexico.

It's so small, but so popular among locals, that at lunch it's local courtesy and tradition to eat and get out so others can get... More
