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.

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.

Minden is one of those towns in America that actually has a wealth of good food. What's unique is that the dining options are not limited to one specific ethnic group. When it comes to Mexican Food in this region, Francisco's is my favorite.

I stopped in here for lunch while in the area, and it was delicious. Reasonably priced too. Nice decor. Right in downtown Minden, which is a pleasant place with a quaint small town feel.
