We picked Abuelos for a night out with the grandbaby and his parents. Computerized ordering and payment system at every table was the first attraction, and with games for the kids for a couple of bucks. Three different salsas kept us busy with chips until our food came. Everyone was more than satisfied with their orders. Our server, Sonya, was... More

Good food and very fast service! Waitress was helpful with our questions. Kind of dumb you have to pay $1.99 to play the games on the table kiosk.

Went here for dinner and it was very good. We ate a variety of enchiladas and tamales. Everything was great - from the meat/chicken/pork filings and all the different sauces. Our waitress was fast and efficient and kept our glasses full. We shared the top shelf margarita and it was likewise, excellent. I will also add that I appreciate the... More

Always hot, fresh, and tasty, Abuelo's Mexican Restaurant in Wichita,Kansas is simply scrumptious. My wife and I are not authentic Mexican food fans and enjoy restaurants like Abuelo's. The menu presents great variety and diversity. To begin with, fresh tortilla chips which are warm and thin are delivered to your table expeditiously. The three different salsas are delicious...my favorite is... More

I've had several selections from their menu and have enjoyed them all. The Beef Fajita's are juicy and very tender. The Mango Pineapple Salsa is just a great start to any meal.
