The atmosphere is beautiful and fun. The waiters are good and fun, too. The menu is varied and good tasting, although the food is not exceptional. We can count on a good experience when we go and many people consider it a favorite.

Love the menu and green enchiladas are amazing. Sangria swirls are best in town. Lots of seating, too.

In town for one night while traveling through. We hadn't been to an Abuelo's in several years, so we decided to give this one a try. We weren't disappointed. Very good food and service.

Waiting time for a table was just minutes. Chips were warm & crispy; salsa was disappointingly bland. If you ask, they'll bring hotter salsa. I did, they did, and it was only marginally spicier than the originally served sauce. I ordered the Del Rio: a tamale, a taco, and an enchilada with rice & refried beans. Good, but not excellent....

The food is excellent, well cooked and timely. Service is great, friendly staff. Our waitress insured that we had everything that we needed and checked on us often. Staff dressed professionally. The only reason that I didn't rate perfect because of the graphic statutes and creepy paintings. I should have called in the order and got it to go.

My fave is their spinach enchilada with the cheese enchilada coming in second. Love their chips and three different salsas they bring to the table.

After trying the New Mexican restaurant in Abilene last week we decided to go back to the reliable Abuelo's. There is comparison in the two. Margaritas, food and service was excellent as usual.
