Worth going to eat and drink.

Don't remember the name but the waitress was great. Ordered the picture of Swirl, very tasty, but alcohol content was near zero.

The hostess was to busy to greet me at the door, and took 5 minutes to even acknowledge me while I was standing in front of the hostess station. She then tried to hard sell me on sitting outside (99 degree day) and scoffed when I said no, she told me it would be about an hour until I could... More

I have gone to Abuelos here in Midland since the original one here opened in the old location. This is my first review of the restaurant since they moved. When they opened it was in a wonderful location built just for them. It had awesome Diego Rivera inspired murals throughout and real plants, fountains and high end touches that made... More

Abuelo's is a high-end Mexican food restaurant on the north side of Midland. The food is tasty, the service friendly, and the atmosphere laid-back.

Best Mexican Food in Midland. They bring out 3 flavors of salsa with your chips. They service is good most of the time as long as they aren't way busy, but that is to be expected anywhere. It's always clean, and the food is great. Not only is the Mexican food great but the French fries are delicious too!

We absolutely LOVE Abuelo's. The fajita steak tacos are a must-try and their tomatillo-cilantro-pineapple salsa is unlike anything else you've ever had before! Great atmosphere and the prices are reasonable. They're open until 10pm or 11pm which is awesome, considering most Midland restaurants aren't open late.
