It was good.

Abuelo's is a huge place with lots of seating. It's somewhat loud since there were a lot of people and tile floors. The chips with the different kinds of salsa were ok. I got the soft chicken tacos. They were good. The service was great! I would go back if ever in the Abilene area again.

Food was excellent, drinks were perfect and quite strong! If you're a margarita lover you have to have one of their top shelf frozen margaritas - they were heavenly. This place is big and family friendly. My only complaint is that we had a table of 20+ and only one server. Luckily, we kept busy with plenty of drinks, chips... More

This was certainly one of the most beautifully designed Mexican restaurants I have ever been to. Don't judge by the outside shopping plaza look because the second you step inside the atmosphere takes over. Absolutely AMAZING decorations and environment. Friendly staff and even better food. I will be certain to make a trip here several times a month!! Keep it... More

When traveling on our annual summer road-trip we try to avoid chain restaurants. Recently when stopping in Abilene for the night, the ideal of Mexican food sounded good. There was an Abuelo’s Mexican Food Restaurant near our hotel and while it is a Texas based chain, we had not previously dined in one of their locations. The restaurant was quite... More

My son just came back to the States from serving in the Air Force in the Middle East for a year. Before heading off to his next assignment in Europe, he requested dinner at one place: Abuelo's! I am sure he longed for their delicious food the whole time he was out of the States. We have never been disappointed... More

This place is a typical Tex-Mex restaurant. There is nothing really out of the ordinary about there food, in fact, there are many places Abilene there are many places with far better food. Where it really suffers is the atmosphere. Quite often it is too loud to carry on a casual conversation at your table. Not worth the hype, not... More

The first thing I noticed was the beautiful interior and the decor of the place. Clean, crisp and vibrant. The food was excellent too. I ordered one of the Grande meals and it was delicious. There were 4 of us in our group and well all got something different, every one of the meals were outstanding. There were 4 different... More

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.
