Abuelo's is a chain Mexican food place. Thus the meals are cooked according to a recipe that is not too spicy. I have tried enchilada's, chalupas, tamales, soups, fajitas, chili relleno and chimichangas, The cheese or beef relleno are better than average. The chimichangas with queso are as well. The fajitas are nothing special. I prefer items with cheese, their... More

Went to dinner with a number of colleagues, and we chose this one, as they wanted some Mexican Cusine. I found the restaurant bright, pleasant atmosphere, and nice decor. This is a chain restaurant and one I was not aware of, as it is not one we have back home. Our wait staff were fun, energetic and eager to ensure... More

We have found out new favorite Mexican restaurant in college station. Their enchiladas are great, I order the combo to get a variety. We also love their varieties of salsa. Highly recommend.

My boyfriend & I went to Abuelo's for dinner last night, and we were unsure what to expect. I found a dish that I was interested in, but being lactose intolerant, I wasn't sure if I could have it. I asked our waiter, Phil, and he went to the kitchen to double check for me. If it was too dairy... More

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
