My husband likes to eat at Abuelo's regardless of where we travel. This restaurant doesn't quite live up to the food quality of their Wichita location; however, still good food. Something new to the menu? Tapas! Their stuffed mushrooms: yummy!!!! Bacon wrapped shrimp: 3 were just enough. You will be tempted to fill up on the chips and salsa. They... More

3 of us stopped in Amarillo and ate at Abuelo's it was amazing. We started out with the Agave Margarita, it was tops, mixed perfectly. I ordered the Alambre De Camaron, the shrimp were cooked to perfection and the bacon was not limp nor too crispy. My wife ordered the Sautéed Chicken Zucchini and loved it. The choices of salsa...

Excellent food and service, great margarita. The ambiance is truly authentic. All thee of us ordered different things. Everyone was very satisfied with there experience. Try the enchiladas or the Chili Relleno's.

Four of us went there for dinner. The food was edible bot something I would seek out again. I love fish tacos but these were really unmemorable.

(8 pm Sat night) Dirty & messy dining room floor, dirty and messy bathrooms even though several staff were standing around chatting with the manager. Part of meal not brought out & served room temperature. Disappointing, never going there again.

Keep in mind this is a chain but this was the original location. So, the magic which created a several city operation can be felt here. The manager, Ken Crowe, is a hands on guy who can be found on the floor, mixing with guests, all times of day and night. It's an impressive room within a very basic strip... More

Great place to eat. Really consistent dining experience every time. I love their prime rib on Thursday nights, but go early they sell out quick.

We've eaten at Abuelo's in Amarillo on a few occasions and every time we've been there it's been a great experience! Great food, great drinks, great atmosphere! I highly recommend trying the green (tomatillo) salsa and chips - it's actually quite refreshing. For dinner, you cannot go wrong with enchiladas and their signature side, "Papas con Chile", which is essentially... More

My husband does not agree with me, but I thought the food was just ok. My first impression was not a good one either - the table we were showed to was filthy - there were smashed corn chips all over the floor and under the table and one of the seats in the booth was covered in liquid. I... More
