Classic Mexican food

First time visit to an Abuelo's restaurant and it was a favorable experience. Wait staff was very attentive and quick to respond to individual diner's needs. The food was very good, received very hot and was tasty, tasty. Restaurant décor was lavishly south of the border. A nice experience.

This was a dining choice for my family and myself while traveling through Amarillo. We wanted to try authentic Tex-Mex and we we went disappointed! The reviews on Trip Advisor were right on the money about the service (awesome) the food (fantastic with huge portions)!!!

This restaurant is a large (as opposed to a small, hole-in-the-wall place that is a hidden gem) extremely good Mexican restaurant. They have hand shaken margaritas that are extremely well done and all different dishes that we tried were great.

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 know. Her name was Raven and she went... 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
