This is by far one of the better places I have had Tex-Mex in a long time. Great price, great food, ok location. But it is what it is. You don't always come for the atmosphere, come here for the food.

Armando's has traditional Tex-Mex dishes as well as some unusual fare. The enchiladas were very tender (although I prefer chile con carne rather than red sauce) and the rice and beans were excellent. However, our favorite was the nachos made with french fries rather than chips. The fries were fresh cut and the meat was plentiful. A full order could... More

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.

We went here following someone's recommendation. Easy to find....south 1st kind of all looks the same, but the sign was large and there were cars out front....always a good sign. It was just us inside though. Menu had a decent amount of options....normal priced. There was a slight language barrier.......that was mildly awkward. Kids options said 3 tacos as the... More

We love taking a group of coworkers to Armando's for lunch. They have a very extensive menu that is sure to please everyone in your group. The servings are large and the prices are small. I love the beef tacos and two of them was less than $3 with tax. They have several fresh salsas and chips for all diners.... More

Armando's Mexican Food is a small restaurant that is rather unassuming. Driving down south 1st Street, you might notice the sign, or the fact that there is a drive-thru sign right out front off the street, but otherwise the building would not draw you in right away. This is a hybrid fast-food restaurant. What I mean by this is you... More

Just went here for the first time the other day and was pretty impressed. The california burrito was so yummy, and its a clean little place inside. My husband and I returned the day after as well for seconds!
