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.

My daughter order beef and cheese chimicanga and it was blah with no flavor and fried a bit too much. I had chicken fajitas that... More
