Great atmosphere. Salsa is good too, with 3 different kinds. But the cheese enchiladas cannot. Be beat.

No doubt about it, Abuelo's is my favorite chain Mexican restaurant. They have a huge menu and everything is good. Today we had enchilada and taco combo. Beautiful restaurant with wonderful service.

Needed to celebrate a hectic week. Wind down and enjoy a glass of wine and some good food. We have never had bad service or food when we went into Abuelo's. We got sat right away on a Saturday evening. Our waiter was very observant and fast. The food was awesome and of course cooked to perfection with savory tastes.

Great atmosphere. I sat at the bar. The chips were fresh and all 3 salsas were excellent. Ordered the "best of the house" dinner for only $ 22.00. Two excellent beef medallions and three bacon-wrapped big shrimp, potatoes and beans. All cooked just right. Wish we had this in my hometown.

1st let's start off with the salsa they give you 3 different ones to choose from. I ordered the chicken fajitas and they were ok and my boyfriend ordered a chicken chimi and he loved it. Overall, ok place to eat.

I am from California and we have our share of Mexican restaurants. I love Mexican food and eat it several times a week. The in-laws live in Arlington and have been going here for quite a while and rave about it, so off we went. The outside looks like an upper end restaurant. The staff is very friendly and very...

My husband, son and I had a late lunch (2 pm) on Friday, the first of August. We drove straight from the airport to satisfy our craving for the kind of Mexican food that you cannot get in Miami, Fl. I chose Abuelos after reading reviews on Trip Advisor, expecting typical TexMex combinations. Instead, our first meal in Texas after... More
