Yummy Mexican food - great prices on happy hour bar menu

Abuelo's was our groups choice for dinner on a Sunday evening. When we arrived most every table was full so we decided to sit in the bar area so the guys could watch the game on tv.

We loved the food here! I had a taco salad and tortilla soup combo which was delicious! My husband loved his enchilada. The salsa and chips were delicious also. The inside of the place is very pretty. The service was quick and almost too attentive.

Located in Bricktown in OKC. Dined in middle of afternoon and the restaurant was not busy. Staff was very efficient. Immediately seated and drink order taken. Server was very knowledgeable about food. Great chips and salsa. I had Nachos Grande and the serving was huge. Plenty of cheese and meat served on nacho chips. Sour cream, jalapenos, pico de gallo...

Great atmosphere and great hot plates of authentic Mexican. Reminded me a a very similar place in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. I was there for lunch on Saturday. No buffet on the weekend. I'll have to come back for that next time. Service was excellent

Eat the bacon wrapped pork tenderloin. Sorry, I can't remember the name but you will not regret it. Smokey, tender, full of flavor and crazy good. I had the shredded beef Chile relent which was awesome. Our waiter (who was very attentive and right on the mark) recommended the avocado enchilada and it didn't disapoint. Eat here!

I have eaten here each time I go to OKC and am never disappointed. Went for lunch and was on a tight schedule. Meal was delivered in plenty of time and was tasty as always.

This is a typical Mexican restaurant. The food is, well, Mexican. It is fairly clean, you can usually get in and they serve promptly.You probably wouldn't choose it for your "anniversary dinner", but it is uniformly fine if you want a bite to eat before a sporting event downtown.

First entering the restaurant, I didn't care for not being greeted by staff even if they were not the "greeter" or "seater". I did like the lunch buffet that made the getting in and out for lunch easier. The food was good and hot. They seemed to keep it stocked with food at all times. The buffet was well priced... More

We ate here the last time we visited Bricktown. Loved the decor and atmosphere. Food was good, but not great. Easy to walk to from downtown hotel.
