Traveling with our dance studio for a competition at the convention center. Looked for something close and found Abuelo's just 2 blocks away. Arrived just before dinner service started, you would think that we would have had quick service. But, no! our drinks were constantly empty as were the chip baskets. Thankfully the water and tea pitchers were close by,... More

As always it seems every new dish I try here is great. Wife loves the stuffed avocados while I'm a fajitas guy. Oh and don't forget the green salsa and chips....don't eat too many or you'll be full but they are so lite and crunchy!

So I'm not a huge fan of buffets. However, I am a fan of Abuelo's! On a recent business trip to OKC we needed a place we could eat quickly and make a meeting. We googled places in Bricktown and found they had an Abuelo's. Parking isn't fun (typical of bricktown) but once parked we were more than happy to... More

Stopped by on a Saturday night, party of 5. We all had entrees, which were served as ordered. The food was not outstanding, it was just okay. We were served a basket of stale chips upon being seated, we asked the waiter to bring fresh chips, which he did. My issue with this restaurant was the horrible service. A cluster... More

The enchiladas were awesome ; the pork tenderloin with sweet chile glaze was sublime ; and the caramel cheesecake with sweet milk sauce was the perfect ending to an awesome dinner!! The service was great and we got seated pretty quickly even though it was Friday nite in Bricktown!

Abuelo's can handle groups of 8-10 without problem and most people can find something they like on the menu. It's slightly up-scaled standard Mexican food. The place looks clean and the service is fine. I found the food a bit over-salted.

I love this place. It is in bricktown within walking distance to the river walk. I have been here several times and would highly recommend it. It does get busy on the weekends though. The food is so delicious always what you order, hot, and very presentable. The staff are always very knowledgeable and friendly. The sangria is amazing in... More

My brother heard of this so we tried it after walking miles around OKC. The atmosphere was perfect and the staff was very friendly. The central fountain and statue was a great centerpiece for the dining hall. The chips and salsa that are complimentary at most Mexican restaurants were anything but typical at Abuelo's. Here they were especially crisp, warm,... More

Abuelo's has been a favorite of ours since it first opened in Bricktown. Not ordinary TexMex. Los Mejores de la Casa and the Monterrey both give a good sampling of several dishes. The Monterrey is huge, though, so if you can't take a doggie bag, it might be too much. It is literally served on a turkey platter! I know... More
