One of my favorites.

One way to tell a good restaurant, is that they are usually very busy. But even if you have to wait for a table, it's worth it.

The food was consistent with our home town Abuelo's which is delicous! We had a great server, but I'm sorry to say I can't remember her name. The table kiosks are great for a quick way to pay making it easier for us and and server.

This Mexican restaurant has easily become one of our family's favorites. The beautiful design and decor, the amazing food, and friendly waitstaff make this a definite yes. It is usually busy, but if a restaurant is busy, that must mean it's good. We usually get seated very quickly. The food has its own unique style and taste that you will... More

You cannot go wrong at Abuelos. You better arrive early or be prepared for a wait. The food & service is amazing. Jeremy was a fabulous waiter. When we arrive in Tulsa & are staying at the Marriott Renaissance it is the absolute first stop we make after checking in & dropping the luggage inside the room!

I eat here at least once a week. (It's close to work, but it's also a fave of mine.) you must try the Avocago creme. It's like guacamole but better. It's a smooth mixture of guac and southwest ranch dressing. Ok, you are in Oklahoma and everything revolves around Ranch dressing. Get over it--when in Rome, right???? Eat the dip... More

We were taken here by some locals because they knew we wanted Mexican. Very nice experience in this more upscale Mexican establishment. Loved the courtyard kind of atmosphere. Very pretty inside. I have never had such good salsa choices. Loved all three that the server brought and the chips were so good and fresh. Also good queso and margaritas. I... More

I love Mexican food and this is the best I have ever eaten. It is very authentic and so delicious. Don't expect the americanise Mexican food version.

Enjoyed my visit. Ordered the seafood Guerrero and combo fajitas and queso. Didn't like the queso, pretty bland. But the Guerrero was fantastic! Great flavors -will be back for that dish. Fajitas were ok but nothing special. Service was on point, friendly and efficient. But watch your wallet! There is better Mexican for a better price in town.
