I had Los Mejores De Casa...tenderloin and shrimp wrapped in bacon...simply outstanding. Good mix of upscale Mexican and Texmex. Great ambiance...quick service....very cool ziosk pay at your station machine. Tanner our waiter was great. You will not be disappointed with this very cool restaurant.

Always busy and very good food. The quality is a bit uneven but overall it's a good deal for the money.

This has got to be one of the top mexican restaurants in Lubbock. Been here on several occasions and was pleased every time. Best meal I had so far was the chiken enchiladas with a fried egg on top. The best! Atmosphere is awesome, not to loud. Service was great.

I visit Lubbock once a year and I love this restaurant. I don't often get good TEXMEX and this place fits the bill. Good food, great service and decent prices!!!

As a pescatarian who doesn't eat dairy, I often end up with rather bland Mexican dishes. However, after a friendly and talkative host seated me at my table, my waiter was quick to visit my table and get my drink order. The chips and salsa, which came out quickly, are very good - three different salsas, including a tomatillo-based one... More

Excellent service, potatoes are my favorite. The patio does not open until around 4pm. Our group wanted to enjoy a Saturday outside.

Abuelo's is always outstanding food as well as service. There is always a waiting line so try and arrive early in the afternoon. I have never had a poorly prepared meal at this restaurant. I'm sure yours will be outstanding as well.

Abuelo's is great great Tex-Mex. Some of their dishes are unique and not like a typical Mexican restaurant. The Durango burritos are out of this world....the roasted meat inside is wonderful. Service can be a bit slow when they are busy.

Abuelos has the Best salsa and chips and the Queso is indescribable. In my opinion there is no other place in Lubbock for great Mexican food. We always have great service and friendly servers. We go at least every other Saturday night and I even manage a lunch in between most of the time.
