Los mejores de la casa is the name of the dish. It is tenderloin and bacon wrapped grilled shrimp served with papas and it is out of this world.. However you can't go wrong with any of their dishes.

The chicken medallions have been over cooked twice now to the point I couldn't eat them. Appetizers take forever to get there. They do have a great selection of margaritas and deserts, but overall it's over priced. Our go to for Mexican food in Amarillo is the Ruby Tequilas on Georgia. Much better priced and better 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 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
