What a deep menu! Lots of choices, lot of entrée and appetizer sizes. Terrifically attentive staff too. Kids will enjoy watching fresh tortillas being made.

We had dinner on saturday night. Was very busy but were able to sit a table of 8 right away. The service was very attentive and visited the table at the appropriate times. All the meals were enjoyed by the family and everything was very good. While the restaurant was very busy, it was quiet enough that we could hear... More

A lovely Mexican restaurant visited on business with some great colleagues. The service was excellent, a very nice atmospheric place to be for lunch. Very busy which is always a good sign. The food selection was good and because I don't like spicy food, I am happy to report that there was plenty for me to eat. Very highly recommended.

Whenever we go we would always come back with a bottle of their excellent salsa. Nice ambiance and good food.

We met a couple at this location to have lunch. The service and food was excellent, however a little on the pricy side for Mexican food. Still there were lots of customers.Right on 71st Street with easy parking almost at the door.

I did a drive by visit to Abuelo's because it was near where I was staying on business. Very pleased with a huge variety of choices and the quality. Choices of Tex-Mex dishes and uh, non Tex-Mex choices?? The chicken tortilla soup was excellent. The enchiladas angelica were also very good with some authentic red and green sauces the tasted...

Different from your usual Mexican place. Inside decor is very well done. You do not feel cramped at all, more like you are outside in the middle of a Mexican home's courtyard. The food was excellent. The chips and salsa was great for starters, especially the green salsa with pineapple( sounds crazy, but it is great). I had bacon wrapped... More

Through thick and thin, Abuelo's in Tulsa has been our Mexican food place of choice for a number of years. The food is consistent and the wait staff have nearly always been very attentive. That having been said, our last visit to Abuelos in Tulsa on Cinco de Mayo was a huge disappointment. We were seated and gave our order... More

Very attentive and friendly waitress and wait staff. The tortilla chips were thin and crispy and the three salsa very good. My entree of an enchilada was average and the chile rellano was okay.

I was in Tulsa on business and Mexican sounded good. I wasn't disappointed with Abuelos. My fajitas were very good and the atmosphere was relaxing. My server was very attentive and friendly. I will come here again and again.
