A co-worker loves their cueso, but I haven't found anything on the menu that I dislike. Was at Abuelo's once before I moved to Tulsa and they kept the bar open for a co-worker and I to finish watching the hockey game. That is customer service!

Went here for lunch with my husband. We were trying to make a 1:30pm movie time and arrived at the restaurant at 12:30. We were seated immediately and our waitress promptly showed up, took our drink orders and then our lunch order. She was very pleasant, and provided good descriptions of different food items like the salsa and the spiciness... More

We ate Sunday much with friends. It was busy, but I thought the food wasn't as good as the last time. Maybe because I got enchiladas instead of fajitas. But my food wasn't very hot and not all that great. I might try it next time I'm back in town.

The place is huge! Lots of tables and the bar area was pleasant with big screens hanging so you can watch games at all angles. The beer was cold, and the food was very good. The server was excellent. All in all we enjoyed the food. It was flavorful and the portions were substantial.

All items our family had were fantastic. No complaints about the food. I had Grandpas favorite which I intend to go back for more.

Returned to this restaurant after 10 years to revisit one of our favorite restaurants in Tulsa. Think the management wanted us to wait 10 years for service and our food as a price for our absence. Not much to review on the food since we never were served it. However, chips and salsa as well as DP were good. So... More

It's really disheartening to read about your wait during your recent visit, especially coming from such a loyal and long-time fan. I can assure you, we do hope to provide the best meal possible, but I'd like to personally apologize for the excessive wait. If you make it back to Tulsa, I hope you can give us another try, so...

I ordered traditional chicken fajitas without sour cream and cheese and i got onions with chicken. No bell peppers. When I asked where the bell peppers were i was told this is their fajitas and i could have bell peppers added to it. I asked where the rest of the stuff was and I got an attitude from several servers.... More

First off, if you are staying at the Renaissance hotel, you are basically walking distance from Abuelo's. The restaurant has a great ambiance and is decorated very well. The menu is pretty expansive and everything that was ordered in the party I was with was enjoyed. The service was great and the margaritas even better. Recommended!
