Abuelos has always done a great job of offering Tex-Mex dishes that are well prepared using quality ingredients. They can tailor a dish to any dietary requirements and the food is always delicious with good service. My absolute favorite Mexican chain.

I live in Lynchburg and sadly there aren't any decent mexican restaurants in town. So when friends flew in to Roanoke, I took the opportunity to take them there since I get little chance to eat there. I've eaten there before and the burritos and chimichangas are very good however, I ordered the shredded beef enchiladas with red chili sauce... More

I had the fajita chicken salad and it was divine. I'm not usually one to spend a lot on salad, but I had been on business travel all week and needed something light... this was perfect. Great flavor, huge portion (I didn't finish!)... good service as well.

We sat in a booth in the bar area, and our waiter, was well below par. It took about 15' to get a glass... More

Mm! The service was prompt and attentive! House marguerites were potent. The a la carte tamale was perfectly served with corn husk! Chicken chimichanga with re-fried beans and signature potatoes was better than most. I would have liked the chimichanga wrap to have been a tad more crunchy. That is my only complaint. Still it was very good. My friends... More

Had dinner here during a 1 night stay in Roanoke on a road trip. Loved the enchiladas and the green salsa tasted so fresh!
