We came to visit family in Abilene and wanted Mexican food. The place is nicely decorated and service was good. Kiwi Salsa was different but good but they offered with my steak tacos this weird potato side. It was basically cheesy mashed potatoes it sure didn't sound like what it was called. I was disappointed in that hot mess. Steak... More

I ate here for a business lunch. Given the location, I wasn't expecting much. The exterior did not look promising either. I was skeptical. After walking through the door, I was pleasantly surprised! The interior is really nice. It is very spacious with more than enough seating and nice décor without being overpowering. There was a fountain in the center... More

Looking forward to the new Miguel's restaurant opening at the end of March, personally. Abuelo's is inconsistent. Last night our server was given so many large groups while two servers nearby wandered amd managed their few tables of 1 or 2 people. Our waitress was not able to perform and was a frantic wreck, which meant we could not relax... More

One of our go-to places in Abilene. Nice open dining area with nice decor makes for a pleasant dining experience. Love those thin, crispy chips and some nice salsas, too. Hard not to fill up on those before the food arrives. Lunch menu available to seniors all day. Lately, we split one of the feast platters and usually still need... More

Pretty good for Tex/Mex on a large scale. The atmosphere was great on a very busy night and service was great. At the bar we were able to get advice in entrees and interesting drinks. A classy place. Our east coast company loved it.

When I think of good Mexican food I think authentic good hot food. Nothing all fancy and swirly drinks. Is there such a thing as fancy gourmet mexican food? Well they try and I don't care for it. The rich and snobby like it cause they don't know better. They would dare be seen in the actual good places.

This place is really nice. The service is top notch and the food is fresh and good. The prices are comparable to places that are not as good. This is a nice place to eat often.
