First, want to say that our server was wonderful, they are lucky to have such an amazing young man working for them! But the food wasn't so great. Very bland and tasted right out of a box/can. Nothing fresh there. Not authentic Mexican food, very much like Taco Bell. Doubt we will go back. Gave it 3 stars due to... More

My wife and I needed a quick meal before a local show, as we only a block and a half away from Francisco's, we went there. The restaurant was VERY busy, we chose to sit at the bar and have an appetizer sampler plate. There was more than enough for us to share. The nachos were excellent and everything on... More

No additional hot sauces on table, which the food desperately needed. Maybe we didn't ask? How are we to know? Service was good. But....

Friends gave us a gift card that we used today. I had two shredded beef enchiladas: husband had two cheese enchiladas. My opinion: the food was more bland than the spicy I expected. Rice and beans, lots of cheese served hot. Even the salsa was on the mild side. No hot sauces on the table. Good service. Maybe a different... More

We have been to Francisco's three times in recent months. They have done a wonderful job sprucing up the decor and the food and service are excellent. The prices are extremely reasonable. Give it a try. You'll be glad you did!

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.
