I have eaten dinner at Armando's 3 or 4 times prior to my last dining experience. The food had always been very good. This last time, the carnitas in the carnitas burrito was very dry. I swear the frozen strawberry margaritas had no tequila in...More

Truly good Mexican food. Carnitas burrito on a fresh flour tortilla...mummy. Great beans and caldos (shrimp soup), with favorful shrimp served really hot. Real ice tea. Lots of leftovers. Outside on the patio, one picnic table, was delightful under the trees. Inside sitting was warmer.

I live out of town and only get to Abilene every 2-3 years. When I come I make sure I visit Armandos. The food and service is top notch. Great prices. They put the chain restaurants to shame.
