The food at this restaurant was very good. Restaurant was busy the night we were there and we sat at the bar which proved to be great. Staff was very helpful and kept our drinks full. Will definately go back.

The menu is much closer to New Mexican than the typical Texas Tex-Mex. Flavors are good yet not overpowering. I highly recommend the stacked enchiladas they are well flavored with not too much cheese or too much chili. Waiting to get in however may take a bit as it is a very popular location, especially at dinner. I would highly... More

Wonderful atmosphere, but that is all. Service was bad and I got sick. Ordered a hamburger (never order hamburgers at a Mexican restaurant), as soon as I took a bite, I knew it was bad and I got sick that night. The waiter took it back, but nobody came to apologize or excused themselves for the bad food, never saw... More

The new Abuelo's has wonderful ambiance and a great addition of a patio area. And like the old location, the food is consistently good. I had the enchiladas de Cozumel, which is really more of a crepe than an enchilada. It is a crepe filled with guacamole, covered with a creamy wine sauce and topped with shrimp and scallops. It...

Abuelo's has a new location, 2908 N Loop 250 W, just down the road from the old one. I love the new building. It looks smaller but seems to be more efficient and much cleaner! The outdoor patio area is open seating and only serves appetizers and drinks. They had a live band and we enjoyed sitting out there while... More

I love the food here. I have tried several items off the menu and everything is good. It does take a while to be seated but that is everywhere you go in the permian area. Margaritas are good as well.

So this was a shock to see it being done right by this place, Wow. great food, great atmosphere. Good service. The food? Well I'll just say they know what they are doing. Excellent sauces,... More

The new location for Abuelo's Mexican Restaurant is just west of the old place (now at Midkiff & the Loop, on northeast side). Our party of 6 had a 25 minute wait,which I guess is not too bad considering west Texas is booming & most places have a wait to get seated. We got drinks from the bar and waited... More

The two best places to eat in Midland with no contest at all are Wall Street Bar and Grill and Abuelo's. This is the best Mexican place in town by a landslide. The Margaritas are awesome. Waiting is a pain and usually really long but that is Midland. Service is slow but again that is Midland. Large menu with a... More
