Who doesn’t love a big stuffed burrito, a margarita with just the right hint of lime or a taco for breakfast every now and then? Mexican-style restaurants in San Angelo serve all this and more. To clue you in on where to go, here’s a short list of some top picks:

Julio’s Burritos

Open for breakfast and lunch only, Julio's Burritos, a West Texas fast-food restaurant, offers a menu with more than 20 kinds of burrito fillings, ranging from egg and potato to chicken fajita. Plan on taking home their house-made seasoned chips and salsa from the chips factory next door.

Fuentes Café Downtown

In business for 28 years, the family-style Fuentes Café Downtown is known for its enchiladas and was originally established in 1948. They opened the Weekend Lounge to entertain guests with Tejano, cumbia and hip hop music and dance. It’s the only restaurant serving food downtown until 2 a.m.

Rosa’s Café

Rosa's Café has its own tortilla factory, so this drive-through restaurant is known for its thick and fresh flour tortillas. Also famous for marinated beef and chicken fajitas, the cook prepares this signature meal over a mesquite wood fire. Customers also rave about the moist and creamy chocolate cake.

The Eagle Seafood and Mexican Restaurant

Mexican seafood, Italian seafood, grilled fish fillet: Expect the unexpected at this hole-in-the-wall restaurant that once housed a Dairy Queen but is now operated by a gourmet chef from Southern California. Shrimp dishes are a favorite, including the appetizer tostada. Another plus: hot and fresh chips with the salsa.

Los Panchitos

You’ll get quick and friendly service at this Mexican restaurant (and full-service bar) where customers rave most about the Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas. But the chile con queso dip is also a nice treat. For dessert, skip the sopapillas and order the pie. They offer Coconut and Lemon Meringue.

The Original Henry’s Diner

This landmark restaurant serves top-notch Tex-Mex and is known for its white dipping sauce (a combination of ranch dressing, sour cream, and guacamole), which you can order free with your chips and salsa. Fajitas, carnitas and enchiladas are the most-ordered meals here. With several rooms and lots of space, this is also the place to bring large dinner parties. Another fan favorite: Top Shelf Margaritas.
