Pretty Good Mexican Food Restaurant

I've eaten here a couple of times since it moved from its former location. I actually think the old place was "prettier." I guess this one has more party rooms, and there is an outside area where there is often a singer performing. It's also on the loop which is probably good for drop in... read more

The hostess was as rude as she could possibly be. She snatched the buzzer when she took it and almost threw the menus at us. The food was great the service was average yet competent.

Took my grandmother to lunch last week. The greeters were very nice and very attentive. From the time that we sat at the table, our good service went out of the window. Our server was not very nice, and she was very slow. She did not come back in a timely manor and she also did not refill our drinks.... More

My wife and I ate at Abuelo's in Midland for the first time since it relocated. We were pleasantly surprised by the extensive and upgraded menu and presentation of food. Although we arrived early to avoid the crowds and a long wait, it took unexpectedly long to order drinks. In the mood for seafood and something other than standard Tex... More

Although the wait was long, and it took awhile to get our food it was worth it. We enjoyed tasty top shelf margaritas and excellent bacon wrapped steaks. The trio of salsa was excellent. We enjoyed the tomatillo the best. Worth a visit!

On our last two trips to Abelo's since they moved into their new digs was great. The service was top notch and the food was every thing we expected. They have a diverse menu with tex mex and authentic mexican plates along with some sea food for good measure. The plates come out piping hot and the sevice was johnny... More

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

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.
