We ate at Francisco's over 25 years ago and it continues to be a good choice for Mexican food in Durango. The service is knowledgable and friendly. The food is good, but not great. The drinks are typical for a Mexican food restaurant.

We love this place!!!!! Hubby eats from the American side of the menu and I the Mexican side. See there are some negative reviews, but the service and food was as good as usual.

Multiple visits hooked us. Then the original owners turned it over to El Ninos and it is sliding downhill faster that the Jamaican Bobsled Team. Food quality is poor. Menus have become ordinary and lack the little surprise items that used to make Francisco's such a joy. This place used to be packed but no longer. They should get a clue, but so far...no. If you expect good Mexican food here, Gringo, you got a disappointment coming.

By all accounts, I have eaten here over 1,000 times. In the last two years it has gone steadily down hill. Sorry Francisco's! I kept trying to stick with you but now I am DONE. Terrible service, terrible food, terrible attitudes.

Very popular, so you may have to queue at busy times, e.g. Friday evening, but its worth it. Not being used to Mexican food, the staff were happy to advise. Food served quickly. Great atmosphere and fun, e.g. when marking a birthday. All we had tasted great.
