"A Family Tradition for Over 50 Years"
Francisco's Restaurante y Cantina was established in 1968. Francisco (Francis) and his wife Claudine Garcia purchased the business previously known as "Joe's Place."
It then became "Francisco's Lounge" and a gathering spot for locals and tourists enjoying nightly live entertainment. Claudine was in charge of the kitchen, and started making homemade chili and tortillas.
At the time, the restaurant only had a few tables. Taking pride in their Hispanic culture, the Garcias' decided to start serving traditional New Mexican food using old family recipes.
For over four decades, Francis and Claudine Garcia and their two sons, Skip and Ted, and eventually their grandchildren, all became part of the family restaurant tradition.

"Our Beloved Teddy and the Present Day"
"Chef Ted" was the head chef and the inspiration as well as the creator for the addition of southwestern, steak, and seafood specialties. Francisco's grew from only seven tables to over 80 and served up to 250 people.
Fifty years and several expansions later, Francis and Claudine have come full circle back to their original roots of serving primarily New Mexican specialties in a smaller "original" home-like atmosphere.
From our humble beginnings in 1968 to now, our family philosophy has always been to treat and serve our customers like family.
