My husband and I ate their three nights ago. We had a long wait AFTER being seated at the table. Our waitress was snappy and rushed. I asked her for jalapeño and after having to ask her again ten minutes later, she brought some. Then I was charged .50 for them. I don't mind the fee but I feel tricked.... More

Well that’s not what we like to hear, Talon! You should be able to count on a great experience on all fronts when you dine with us, and I hope you’ll accept my apologies if we missed the mark. I know first impressions can be hard to shake, but I hope that we can get a second chance to give... More

I had been to Abuelo's several times before, and during my last visit to Tulsa, I had the opportunity to do so again. It is always very good. A trio of salsa's to start, very good Chim's and excellent service. I would definitely recommend you give it a try, it is worth fighting the traffic on 71st for!

Our lunch was very good. Hot food when it arrived, although we didn't know that their papita's are mashed. When I ordered I told the waiter that I couldn't eat sour creme or milk and changed my sour creme chicken enchilada to a beef enchilda. The mashed potatoes are made with sour creme, but I had to ask about that... More

The food, service and atmosphere was above average. There are many Mexican restaurant choices in the Tulsa area, abuelo should be considered as one of the better ones.

Prices a little on the high side for Tulsa. Excellent salsas. Server brought selection of 4 and all were delicious. Site made soft corn tortillas were delicious. Atmosphere is top notch. Service was superb. Food was excellent, too. The only hit (and a major one) was that the chili relleno was a small Anaheim pepper rather than a poblano. Try... More

This is our 2nd visit to Abuelo's and again it was outstanding. Some may think that they have Americanized their menu and taste, but I would have to disagree. The portions are hugh and without a doubt the best mexican food I have tasted in awhile. Be sure and have the chile queso, just hot enough for great taste. I... More

The dip sampler is so good we always order it. Kids attack the cheese, I love the avocado cream, and husband loves the chili flavored dip. Something for everyone. Avocado enchiladas are great, bacon wrapped shrimp are awesome, and their basic Mexican rice is good. Service is almost always very good.

Late dining but enjoyable. Close to hotel and provided a great dining option. lt would have been good if staff had waited until we left to start clean up in the area. Food was good as usual.
