We regularly go to Francisco's for lunch on weekends. Their service is fast and friendly and the food is great. Consistently excellent; highly recommended.

We needed a quick dinner prior to a show in the immediate area. Francisco's was just over a block away and is our favorite Mexican restaurant. We had to wait about 10 min. as they were very busy with other people eating before the show. Once we were seated the service was very fast. Both of our meals were served... More

Staff was friendly and courteous. Food was good and not over priced. We stayed at the motor lodge across the street which made Francisco's an easy walk.

A lot of locals like this but my wife is Mexican and this food is over priced and not that authentic. I really have eaten there a lot over the years but I rarely go away saying that was worth it.

We eat at Francisco's every time we visit the area. The food is reliably good and is reasonably priced. The menu is what you expect in a Mexican restaurant.

Francisco's has great food at great value. Service is good and "order to serving" time is quick! Definitely a great meal deal!

Take out last night. Ready when promised, hot, fresh - this is the same result we get anytime we eat there or order to take home. Usually see friends there - all seem satisfied.

Not all was bad, however, you can expect purchased elsewhere salsa and room temp chips from a bag to start this authentic meal. Beans tasted homemade(good), but carnitas tasted like I made them, plain not restaurant level. Service was just ok but friendly. Food came way before forks to eat it did. Pleasantly surprised with Cadillac margarita.

Thank Robert G
