Good food, predictable. The problem in Midland is service. Due to the oil boom, they struggle to keep qualified and trained staff. Competition for food service people here is high and hence they have a lot of turnover. It is a good restaurant but very dependent on the staff whether you get a meal in a reasonable amount of time... More

First of all, I have to start by saying this is an expensive Mexican restaurant. Dishes start at $10 and up...but they are so worth it! I had the lighter portion of the Fajita tacos, meaning they give you 2 tacos instead of 3. I am so happy I did this as they are very filling and I had eaten... More

Shared a Durango burrito with my wife...thought it was a lunch portion. The potatoes had no potatoes in them and the overall flavor of the meal was a great disappointment and we doubt we'll be back to what we thought was a fair place to eat. The service was good but when it came to the food, "what happened?"

The chile rellenos are very delish. Big portions, great service, nice atmosphere. One of our top places for Mexican now days

This is a good place to eat if you like "Fancy Mexican". I prefer the down home style Mexican restaurant with tacos, burritos, fajita's, tamales, Quesada, etc.. This was the "Uptown" version of a Mexican restaurant. There were fountains and statues, and palm trees, and a whole lot of fancy surrounds. Don't get me wrong, the place is nice but... More

I really like going to Abuelo's. Lunch or dinner is always a treat for us to go here. It is a great place to take friends for dinner or a casual or business lunch

Very good Mexican food, very popular spot, expect a wait usually at least half an hour to an hour, good waitstaff and prompt once you get in

We took my husband here for Father's Day (30 min wait) & then went a few weeks later also. I love their menu, as there is a nice variety & some dishes you won't find at other Mexican restaurants. Very large dining area, good, consistent service, reasonable prices for what you get, & good menu for kids. Try it. You... More
