My husband and I love to split the Jaxon special. He will never split usually, but this yummy steak ,2 chicken sour cream enchiladas, and rice, beans, and guacamole are perfect to share. The chips and hot sauce are delicioud.

Went here for dinner on a Friday night and was thoroughly impressed with the service and food. I had the New Mexico enchiladas, wife had the Monterrey Chicken Enchiladas, we loved it. Definitely recommend this place and we'll be back.

Wonderful service with friendly staff. The queso, enchiladas, and desserts were average. We tried the carrot cake and chocolate cake with coconut icing and both were dry.

This is my favorite restaurant in San Angelo. The food is amazing, the drinks are amazing, the service is amazing, just everything is great. You can go there and order, eat, and get back to where you were at in under a half hour. They are so fast. Their Monterrey chicken enchiladas are my favorite.

I've eaten at Armenta's several times, and their food is definitely better than average as far as Mexican food goes. The soft tacos are pretty good, although they often seem to add too much lettuce and tomato as filler. The service is inconsistent; sometimes great, sometimes not-so-great. Overall, they are one of the better Mexican restaurants in San Angelo.

We went for lunch and the place was packed, which is a good sign. The service was on time and very fast. The food was great and fresh with an authentic Mexican feel. The have enchiladas made in several ways and from what I had and what my colleagues had, everything was great. No complaints at all.

We ate breakfast here and it was really good. There is not much room in the restaurant so come early. It gets really crowded. The pancakes and tacos are good.

Lively, colorful and busy little place. Another room had live music which would have been fun, too. Service was fast and friendly. Food was good & we liked the chips and salsa. Not a great margarita. Might return if through San Angelo again.

When you are eating out on a business trip sometimes it's a crap shoot. Today when I pulled into this restaurant I was a big winner!! Some would call it a "hole in the wall" but no way!! it is small so come early I guess because it was filling up. I ordered the Beef chili Rellenos...and they were amazing!!... More
