Above average food and service

Other than wait times, which move pretty fast for groups of 4 and under, Abuelo's holds up to it's positive reputation for very good food and very good service. The quality is very consistent. If I were traveling to the Midland/Odessa area and looking for a restaurant to try, Abuelo's would be it.

You know that feeling of traveling all day, exhausted, can't think straight, and fresh off the plane and starving? And your in a new city you've never been before and really NOT looking to discover that great little hole in the wall place? You just need to EAT! Then is the time you hope and pray for the chain restaurant... More

Good wait staff and prompt seating. Ordered a large platter and all was very, very good. Asked for extra salsa and was provided two large bowls. Just a very good experience from top to bottom. Excellent Mexican food and they have the new check-out at the table option, which was AWESOME! Recommended.

This was my first time eating at this chain. I was impressed by the atmosphere and the staff was very friendly. The food was excellent. It was fresh and delicious. I ate the durango burrito lunch and my daughter had the kids quesadilla. It was a little more expensive that I would normally pay for lunch but it was absolutely... More

Awesome atmosphere, awesome food, great selections to choose from. Be there early to be seated but it's worth the wait.

We go to Abuelo's often. The food is always excellent. The atmosphere is great for West Texas, lots of greenery and colors. Wait time can vary but worth the wait

Abuelo's was a pleasant surprise! Loved to whipped red potato alternative to rice. Murals on walls by Thomasson add great character. Expect a wait. Enchiladas and tacos are not greasy; nice flavor.

Went to Abuelos for my first time last week! My only complaint is the long wait to get a table. The food was amazing and the server was prompt. They even have little computers on the table that you can order from or call your server, I've never seen those before those are such a brilliant idea! I had the... More
