My meal and everyone's meal who ate in our party was great!! I ordered the Juarez combination platter and it was super good. As good as it was, I was not able to finish it and I'm a pretty big eater. My dad ordered a mushroom appetizer with spinach and cheese that was very good and I highly recommend. Our... More

Wife and I decided to go back here after it was where we went 11 years ago for our 1st date. Food was excellent. Waiter gave us great recommendations. Can't say anything bad about the lace. All thumbs up!!!

The fajitas were what I would expect from a place like Chilis. They were average. The staff was very friendly. If I ever go back I will try something else.

I have been to Abuelo's three or four times now and always had a good meal. It's a little pricy which is the reason I gave it a 4 instead of 5 but I would definitely return.

I have eaten at Abuelos in Tulsa & in Rogers, AR several times. I love the chips & green salsa & would come to eat these ala carte if they did not have any other menu offerings. The entree items that I have tried were good also.

Starting off the chips at this place are really oily. My enchiladas cozumel were really missing most of the seafood called out in the menu description. Definitely not a $16.50 entree. Service was good sitting at the bar. Wife's shrimp quesadilla was very poor quality. Save yourself a trip here and go to Los Cabos, much better food and prices.

We recently ate at Abuelo's on a Saturday night with a large group and had good food and unbelievable service. Our waitstaff never let us run low on drinks or chips. You can't go wrong here

I normally stay away from the busiest area of town when I look for dining, but I had to try this one because it came highly recommended. I love, love, love Mexican food and have eaten plenty - this is probably a little better than average, and the serving sizes are plentiful. The place was filled with many people waiting,... More

Easy to find and located close by to shopping and movie theatres. Super nice interior ... like eating in an open Mexican park. Fajita's are amazing as well as the margarita's. It not cheap but overall a good value.
