Best Tex Mex and Most AWESOME Server

We we're traveling cross country from California to Virginia. I have already eaten many times at Abuelos in Roanoke and Chesapeake, Virginia and wanted my granddaughters and daughter in law to see why I loved it so much. It was my granddaughter's 11th birthday and I made sure to let our server... read more

My office took me there for my retirement. The food was great but very pricey. The staff gave me a free dessert large enough to share with everyone. This is one of my favorite Mexican restaurants but the price is too high for a retiree.

This is not a mom & pop restaurant. We were told it is a chain of about 40 restaurants owned by a man who cares about the quality of food and service. The menu has more options with a greater range than most Mexican restaurants. Three salsa with better than average chips come at the time of the drink order... More

This was our second visit to this restaurant, excellent both times. Very nice atmosphere, friendly service. Quality Mexican food, three different salsa's and chips served on arrival to table, my favorite was the green with pineapple in it. Skinny margarita was very good, usually I don't like the light ones. I had the beef enchiladas with rice and beans, it... More

We usually eat at the Abuelo's in Abilene, Tx. I was really surprised that a chain type restaurant wouldn't be exactly the same across the board. Not even close to the one in Abilene.

On our vacation we stopped here for dinner one night. Our waitress had just started working there a week prior let me tell you hands down the BEST wait staff I've ever encountered, she was awesome! She knew the menu and made recommendations. Food was wonderful and the manager came over to make sure everything was just fine which I... More

Abuelo's is typically consistent with the food and service. A few months ago they seemed to be cutting back on some things like less cheese on the nacho's. That trend seems to have changed. The food is very good and portions very nice. I like the idea of having several options for sides, but you have to be aware or... More

Any time we're in Amarillo, this is the first place my wife says that's where she wants to eat. Great service, great food, never had a bad experience there. Even though it's part of a chain, it's like a one of a kind place.
