I don't live in Texas, but I look forward to eating at Abuelo's anytime I'm in the DFW or Abilene area. They have consistently good Mexican food. The spinach enchiladas were amazing, as were the chips, queso and salsa. I love the atmosphere, but it can be a little bit loud, if you are going with friends and trying to... More

I always order seafood when eating here, but my husband really enjoys their Mexican food. Their menu is extensive with so many choices! The food is always delicious! It is our favorite place to eat in Abilene. Service is always excellent also!

I am not a big fan of Tex-Mex food, but my wife and kids really like it. Abuelo's has consistently had the best offerings in Abilene for many years. I highly recommend the bacon-wrapped shrimp. I don't like Mexican-style rice, but I the potatoes are very good.

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.
