Been to ABUELOS's Many times and it has always been an enjoyable, consistent experience.dly Always a Friendly Greeting by the Hostess Staff . Our server Lorenza was friendly, kind, hospitable and accommodating. Crispy light and thin warm Chips with 3 types of Salsa to begin for your table. I asked for Picante Caliente in addition, and believe me it was... More

While on a recent trip to Arlington, we decided to try Abuelo's. We really did love it so much, we went twice to eat there. Their menu has a wide variety of foods to choose from. My husband had a steak and enchilada combo meal that also came with guacamole and flan for around $20. He really enjoyed it. Even... More

Very fresh and authentic Mexican Food. We loved the atmosphere and decor. Can't wait to go back. Very fairly priced and worth every penny.

The tamales aren't listed on the menu separately, but we asked our server, Zanetta, if they could be ordered and she was happy to place that order. Hubby has eaten tamales all over Central America and he thought these were among the best! The spinach casserole side dish is awesome. Unlimited nice thin light tortilla chips and three salsas. Everything... More

It feels very spacious inside and brightly lit. Attentive waitress. Outside seating a bit crowded andit was too windy that day to enjoy it. Fajitas were good and tortillas warm. Quick lunch service.

We had heard about this chain from my husband's co-workers so we decided to try it out while we were in Arlington for Spring Break. The ambiance is very nice once you get past the plastic decor. The service was excellent. I liked that the tables were laid out so it wasn't so crowded. The food was very good. As... More

We visited Abuelos for a Sunday afternoon lunch, and a wonderful lunch it was! My wife had grilled tilapia, I had beef enchiladas, the presentation was beautiful and it was great meal. Our server was very helpful when ordering and the service was exceptional. Overall, a first class experience and we will return on our next visit Arlington.

Great food and our server, Elyscia was the best. I had the Pescado Guerro and the Mrs. had the cheese enchiladas. Excellent. The cheese dip was also great.

This was my 1st visit to this place and I will absolutely return when I'm back in the area. Chips came with three different salsa and all were good. Service was great and they had a good selection of beers to go with my meal.

I've eaten at the Abuelo's in Amarillo twice. The first time I thought it was ok. The second time I was a little more impressed with it. Then by coincidence I ate at one in TN. I LOVED it and looked for ones closer to my home in MD. After going to the one in Arlington two days in a... More
