Great service

recently stayed in Tulsa and ate at abuelo's, food was fast and very good. Staff was very friendly and helpful. It is located right off of 71st south, easy access. Don't be late or you will wait trust me plan your evening in advance because it fills up fast, hence the good food and service.

We needed a break from the last three days at the hospital. The structure itself and the promise of some good Mexican food prompted our stop. I had frozen Deza Margaritas and my family member had the Sangria Swirls while we enjoyed a trio of salsa with some thin and tasty chips. Our entrees were the Firecracker Shrimp tacos and... More

If you Love Tex Mex, want variety plus choices, and don't mind a chain restaurant this one is for you! They bring 3 salsas and chips to your table as a standard app. The beers on tap were the precise temperature that they should be. Atmosphere transports you out of Tulsa and into another country. I had the Chili Rellenos... More

This was my favorite Mexican Restaurant, now you can go to Sonic and have the same service and eat. They have a kiosk on the table for you to order your food and pay if you use a credit card. Really?

It's truly disheartening to read that we fell from your top spot, Tyler. We value your support and I'm beyond eager to make this right. When it comes to our kiosk, our intention was to create an easier experience, but I understand your desire to chat with the team. I will certainly take this feedback to heart. Overall, I sincerely...

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

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
