Very cool place. It's clean! It's affordable. It's family friendly. The food is great. The staff was kind. The price was doable. We'll go back for sure.

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

I love eating at Armenta's. I drive my San Angelo family crazy because when I go to visit, they always have to take me to eat there. I always get their chili rellenos. They are great. Love the hot sauce and the chili con queso. Only reason I don't give them a 5 is because I don't like their tea.... More

Found this small cafe by chance during a visit to San Angelo. This is an old style neighborhood eating spot with a small dining area that was packed with locals. There was a bit of a wait, but believe me the food is worth waiting for. Hot sauce has just the right kick, and the carne asada was near perfection.... More

Armenta's has a large menu and I haven't ever had a bad meal here. The hot sauce is great and the meals are terrific.

Place is a popular lunch spot so get there early. Daily special was ordered and awesome. Beef enchiladas and Shrimp Enchiladas were also ordered and outstanding. Great lunch spot not to be missed.
