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.

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.
