The Jaxon Special is our favorite. The portions are so generous, you can share or take home for another meal. Yum!! I ate it too fast to take a picture.😊

Armenta's is a San Angelo staple that many people could overlook if not paying attention. It is in a quaint environment but the food is unprecedented. If you like enchiladas I recommend you try this place. You won't regret.

Having tried several other Mexican restaurants in San Angelo, this place, by far, is the best Mexican food in town. Small restaurant atmosphere focused on good food and affordable prices. Definitely recommend.

Tiny hole in the wall, Tex Mex, where the plates with groaning piles of food are almost larger than the tables. Friendly service, only wine and beer, they even do a wine margarita, (drink the beer). I think that the most expensive entree was $16, which was a large strip steak, and comes with everything Tex Mex imaginable, beans, rice,... More

Great salsa but the best are the Monterey chicken enchiladas. Can't go wrong with any of the menu items. Never been there for breakfast but is always crowded. Be prepared to wait if you arrive after 6:30pm but the wait is worth it. Small inside but have a comfortable patio.

Great place for lunch, service is fast, food is authentic and atmosphere is fun and lively. The enclosed patio gets a little warm in the summer

My husband and I love to split the Jaxon special. He will never split usually, but this yummy steak ,2 chicken sour cream enchiladas, and rice, beans, and guacamole are perfect to share. The chips and hot sauce are delicioud.

Went here for dinner on a Friday night and was thoroughly impressed with the service and food. I had the New Mexico enchiladas, wife had the Monterrey Chicken Enchiladas, we loved it. Definitely recommend this place and we'll be back.

Wonderful service with friendly staff. The queso, enchiladas, and desserts were average. We tried the carrot cake and chocolate cake with coconut icing and both were dry.
