I have been here many times, always wanting to try something different each time, but usually get the same thing, because it is always so good.

We were traveling through Abilene and did a quick search and found this place. We ate at the one in Lubbock and really enjoyed it. I ordered the Laredo and being a former resident of Laredo I would say the name was very appropriate. I miss the great Mexican food I had in Laredo and this brought back some excellent... More

The food here is good but portions are kind of small for the price you pay. Not really an authentic Mexican restaurant. The waiters/waitresses can be kind of rude as well.

The Abilene Abuelo's was one of the best meals we have eaten. The décor of this restaurant is beautiful, the food very good, the service outstanding and the price is very competitive. We will definitely eat at this restaurant again.

We eat here about twice a month. I've eaten at the Abuelo's in Lubbock and most recently, Amarillo. This is by far and wide the best Abuelo's that I've eaten at. Very polite, attentive staff, nice atmosphere and spectacular food. Lunch menu can't be beat, plenty of food, with their awesome, unlimited chips and salsa, for the same as you'd... More

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.
