I've eaten here many times over the years. Never had bad food here. Service is always good. Good family run business.

Franco's has been around for a LONG time, and the food is always great. Traditional Tex-Mex with huge servings and fast service. Packed at lunch but a great bang for the buck!

Small place, fantastic service and food. 7 of us were in and out in an hour during lunch rush. Large portions and tea glasses never empty (that's big in Texas). Will definitely go back.

I went with some friends for lunch cause one of them had suggested the place, so the group decided where we'd eat. We got there and walked in the door, and we stood there for quite awhile until someone came to seat us. No greetings at all, just a mumbling "table or booth." We sat at a table, the waitress...

Don't let the "hole-in-the-wall" appearance fool you. This restaurant is spot on - fresh and authentic mexican food! The chips are light and crispy. The enchiladas are fantastic and prices are great.

The Franco's special is delicious. The Mrs loves the enchiladas and so do I. Just can never go wrong here and make sure I get here every trip back home. Great selections and variety. Love the menudo and pretty much nothing on the menu. Chicken fried steak is delicious as well.

The parking lot was packed At 1:00 in the afternoon. The wait was only about 15-20 minutes. The waitress kept the chips and salsa full. We had the chile relleno and refried beans, 2 Franco specials (grilled chicken breast with queso) and beef nachos. The meal for 4 people cost $38.00. It was some of the best Mexican food we... More

This place is a favorite of and recommended by the local population. The restaurant has great food, fair price, and a wide variety of food offered. Service was prompt, but get there early as the place is very popular and very busy every night.
