Great food and good service. Our kids loved their beef tacos and everything--from the chips to the margaritas-- was tasty. All reasonably priced so a family night out won't break the bank.

My wife and I enjoyed a very nice meal at Abuelo's in College Station this evening. The atmosphere is very nice and the service was terrific. Our meal was tasty, and we got iced teas to go. For this area, Abuelo's is one of the best.

Even though the Mexican dishes here were a little more commercial, the food was really good, the atmosphere relaxing and the staff was timely with service.

Depending on who is waiting on you the experience can vary. The food however is a constant A+! I have never been dissatisfied with the quality of food. The drinks are just as good and the beer on tap is the coldest in town! Chips and salsa are top notch as well.

We visited Abuelo's College Station on Wednesday just at 5:30. The place was only about half full, and considering this was move-out and graduation week at Texas A&M, that should have been a sign. Our waitress was unfamiliar with the selection of beer offered (never heard of Michelob Ultra? Really?) Once that was settled, my daughter asked if they had... More

As per my previous reviews, I love eating here. Its my favorite local Mexican restaurant. The food is fantastic. I especially love the ground beef enchiladas. Service was pretty good, despite it being graduation night at Texas A&M (so, it was packed). The decor of the place is also very nice as well. We've been coming here for years since... More

Menu is like a catalog with lots of choices and options. Seasoned beef enchiladas with chili con carne as good as I've had in a while since my favorite place at home closed.

A friend recommended this restaurant so we decided to check it out. The atmosphere was very good and the service was excellent. We ordered 4 enchiladas and they allowed us to share it. The food was very good but I honestly didn't love the chips, which is unusual for me. All in all, I would recommend this restaurant.

A little on the pricey side, but the fajitas are great. A little skimpy on the sides, but still a great meal.
