Casa Franco is our go to Mexican restaurant for great food and service. If Miguel or Diez see us coming from the parking lot our margaritas are on their way. Our favorite meal is shredded beef tacos. They are wonderful. You will no doubt enjoy all of the authentic Mexican food and friendly service at Casa Franco.

Being new to living in Mission Viejo, we need to establish our "go to" places for a familiar, consistently good, reasonably priced restaurants. Casa Franco will be our "go to" Mexican food place, for sure!! We went on a Sunday afternoon around 2:00 for a late lunch. While there were other customers there, it was not packed and we could...

A small local place that exceeds all others. After living in Mission Viejo for over a year we found this little joint and love their food. The same people are always working here and the food is consistently good. Our adult kids live in tustin and they drive down to eat here as well. The crispy chicken tacos and chicken... More

When deciding on where to satisfy ones craving for Mexican food, most of us here in the O.C. have a few small family run places that will always put the big regional chains to shame. Let me share one of my favorites close to me. Casa Franco is small and inviting. It features most of the usual fare. But as... More

My husband & I have been eating at this restaurant for years. It has been a year or two since the last time we had dinner here. The menu has changed but the quality of the food is as fresh & delicious as ever! I especially like the chicken enchiladas as they use only white meat & lots of it... More

My family and I have gone here for many years and are never disappointed. The prices are very affordable and the food is so flavorful you really can't go wrong no matter what you order.

The food is good, the staff is very helpful. The owner is uptight and annoying. The layout is a bit tight. Go for the food and ignore the owner.

I like Casa Francos. We often make a point of going to Casa Franco's for Taco Tuesday for their inexpensive tacos. Often someone will order one or two other things off the menu which is ALWAYS better than the tacos. The tacos aren't all that great, cheap, but not the best tasting. This place is a good central spot to... More

We are regulars here. It's our go to for family dinners, late night casual eating. Best Mexican food around. Servers are like family. Shrimp enchiladas and chicken tortilla soup are two of my favorites. Chicken is all white meat. Try it in a crunchy taco. Strong margaritas!
