Large selection of different types of food. Portions were large and almost too much. Ate early and were the only ones in the place.

I have only been to Francisco's Country Kitchen for breakfast. But it has been on 20 plus occasions. I have never had a bad meal here. Service had been very good and the food always met exceed my wants. I am a diner lover and Francisco's Country Kitchen has got the diner thing going on.

After a long road trip and a lunch of carbs we chose to try this diner. The waitress very kindly did two child portions of spaghetti and meat sauce with a side of broccoli and cauliflower. I had the chefs salad and my wife the stir fry. All the food was freshly prepared and cooked. The waitress was excellent and... More

The outside fo the restaurant looked a little run down. The sign needed repair. We avoided here at first, but there seemed to be limited choices around the area unless you wanted fast food. We decided to take a chance and were pleasantly surprised. The food was plentiful and the price very good. Our waitress was helpful and refilled our... More

I really like Francisco's country kitchen! Have been twice in the past couple months or so. The service has been super friendly and prompt. The food has been delicious (I have ordered breakfast items) and the prices are very reasonable. Very glad to have found Francisco's. My sister loved it too!

Been here several times for breakfast and once for dinner. Food is pretty good, their bread is homemade. Pricing is average for a family restaurant. The restaurant itself is in need of at least a freshening up and the bathrooms desperately need remodeling. Despite the fact that most every fixture in the bathroom is broken, they do a great job...

We have been on the road for over a week. And by far, this was the best. I had the salad, which was very fresh, good coffee, and the wait staff is very friendly! Plus she smelled good...

I have never had a better chili verde than the chili verde in my omelette....I an still dreaming about the chili verde omelette. I had it with hot tortillas home fries and homemade salsa. I wish I lived in Santa Maria. I would have this at least once a week. My family members all had a traditional breakfast of eggs... More

Went here after getting some ad coupons. Figured we'd try it. Just a basic diner. No frills. Service was okay, food was okay. The machaca which was a recommended item was just alright. They do have fresh squeezed oj. Inexpensive food items.

Thank ctunnell
