Great chicken medallions

this is my favorite Mexican restaurant in Amarillo. Their hot sauce is just right, and the chicken medallions are a great lunch choice. If there on the weekend try the prime rib, it is unbelievable .

Went with friends. It is a bit pricey but seems to stay very busy because it is very good. It was a bit hectic for a quiet dinner conversation with our friends, but after a margarita or two we didn't notice it.

Gotta tell ya, the chips and salsa are enough to highly rate this joint! But, the dinners are delicious, the atmosphere is very nice, but not stuffy, and the staff is super friendly... I guess, what would you expect from Amarillo?!

We were passing through Amarillo and looked on our Nav system for nearby restaurants. Abuelo's came up. We looked at their menu online and decided to go there. It is easy to get to from the freeway and has plenty of parking. The ambiance is very nice. The menu is a varied selection. We started with the queso with beef.... More

Not sure why, but this place really does it for me. I'm a salsa freak, and with three amazing options you can't go wrong. Then there are the enchiladas. I've tried several combinations and various toppings all brilliant. I love me some flan and I'm told their flan is award-winning. I'd believe it. It's the most amazing flan I've ever... More

We were surprised when we pulled up. It's a small restaurant and no one was in the parking lot. We thought well it was 2pm and went in anyway. After arriving every 10 min another family walked in. It was packed when we left. Anyway the food was great.

We've dined at Abuelo's in several different cities and this Abuelo's ranks among the best. Tried their new Carnitas Street Tacos and they could not have been any better. Wait staff was courteous and very attentive Enjoyed the Carnitas Tacos so much that we went back and my wife ordered the nachos and substituted carnitas for the selection of chicken... More

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.
