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.

I have been to this restaurant several times over a period of 5 years. The recipe for the taco shells changed and I was forewarned by family. I asked if I could get the tacos with the original shells and was told I could. I think they still gave me pre-packaged shells due to the busy time of the day.... More

I have come to decide that Jesus himself would eat here… I can't order anything but the Monterey… It's absolutely the best thing ever...The few times that I have strayed from my Monterey, everything has been absolutely out of this world!

This was our first time trying this restaurant chain & we enjoyed it. The queso is awesome! Steak was surprisingly good for a Mexican place. Fun vibe, loved the colors & little fountain. Service was meh.

8 family members met for lunch. Quick seating. We had a new waiter and he was nervous,but was conscious. Drink order was correct. Food was great and correct. A bit slow on chips but he was new. Bill was easy to read. Abuelos is always a bit noisy but a consistently good place to eat!

This is the go to place for good Mexican food in Abilene. We have never gotten bad food - always excellent. Depending on where you sit, it can get a little noisy.

We went to visit Liesa's Aunt Char, Uncle Ray and Cousin Terry in Abilene, TX. Of course, they insisted on taking us out for dinner anywhere we wanted, cuz that's just how they roll. Well, we didn't know exactly where we wanted to go; we just wanted it to be someplace we don't have back home - you know, something... More

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.
