New very extensive menu of offerings at Abuelo's this evening. The orders got a bit mixed up but everyone enjoyed their meal. Hand shaken margaritas were deemed the best. Each person had a different dessert and all were delicious

This restaurant is a good reliable nationwide chain for Mexican dishes. Quite loud due to floorplan design. Quantities are large and filling, value is fair also. I enjoy it and often try items other than standards,which can be very good.

Shared a great meal with colleagues after work. The fajitas are plentiful, hot and sizzling. We had a great server. Great decor with ample sitting place. Will return on my next visit to Abilene.

While they do have some good queso and decent drinks, the food is nothing special as far as tex mex goes. For big portions it is decent, but I can get the same quality food at Taco Bueno.

I have eaten at many of the Abuelo's locations statewide and in Oklahoma. This one has consistently good food quality, and a pleasant dining environment. My favorite is the Los Mejores De La Casa. I always sub the espinaca casserole as one of my sides. Excellent.
