Good food and even better service!

We were with a group of 20. We had a reservation, and were seated in a timely manner and our server was very attentive. Very clean, and the staff overall was friendly. The food was very good, and would eat here again.

Wonderful food at a great price. We were amazed at the portion size...they were huge! The price for the type of food was wonderful. The food was top of the line and the place was very clean.

Found this on a layover day and had a great lunch. House specialty grandpa enchiladas and shrimp cocktail: tasty, right size and fine service. We'll be back.

Stopped here while traveling with family. We were seated promptly and server was very attentive. Our table and the restrooms were clean. Everyone enjoyed the food. Margaritas were a little on the sugary side (reason for 4 stars). Try Mi Abuelo's Manjar...yum!

Okay, so it's Texas, I'm on a road trip, and I am wicked hungry and craving Mexican food. I am Mexican by the way. So I go to my trip advisor app and find this place... Let's do this part by part: Looks: the restaurant has a great ambiance/atmosphere. The tables are nice, the walls are decorated with murals, there... More

This used to be one of my favorite places in town but I must say the past few times I've gone the quality of food has not been great and the wait staff has been basically one step above extremely rude if that. There are too many good Mexican food places in this town to eat at that I don't... More

On a recent trip I had lunch at Abuelo's. Very nice selection, good food, good pace, and great wait staff. Although it is a chain, never my first choice, it is a nice dining experience. Check it out!

Whether I go to Abuelo's with my just my wife or with a group, the service is always good and the food is great in my opinion. It is Tex-Mex rather than old fashioned Mexican food, but it is what I like. I enjoy the enchiladas for normal nights out, and on special treat night, I like the Los mejories--3... More

I always leave here being absolutely stuffed. Their fish dishes make you forget this is a Mexican food place and their enchiladas make you glad that it is. The salsas are good and I love the spinach! The now have tablets at the tables for the kids to play games or the adults to play trivia.
