The food is excellent and so is the service. If you like variety and American Mexican/original Mexican food then this is the place to dine at. I have never had a bad meal here. You always get warm chips and three dipping sauces free with your meal. The chips are endless.If you go away hungry, then something is wrong. I... More

Abuelo's has great Tex Mex food! They serve 3 great hot sauce's with chips when you sit down. The traditional red is by far my favorite. There food is consistently good! They have a great bar area. Wonderful traditional Tex Mex food!!! Very popular with the locals.

After a long day's drive from Houston, we went to Abuelo's based on the consistency of reviews and recommendations from friends. We were very happy we went there as the meal more than satisfied us. It is a very popular spot for locals and others so you might want to get there a bit early to not have to wait.... More

The food was good and the service was great. Had the pork tenderloin wrapped in bacon. The food has improved over the years.

I'm not going to lie, the grilled chicken salad was delish and enough for 2-3 meals. The salsa was average but I make my own so I don't usually hold that against restaurants. My con was with the service. Our waitress was polite but seemed to do things in her own little world. We had a table of 5 for... More

We went there early afternoon. I got the shredded beef burrito, my wife got a seafood platter and we had quest for an appetizer. Everything was great and the atmosphere was nice. Great seafood for a Mexican restaurant.

Excellent Mexican food. Best chips and dips in town. Margaritas are always top shelf! Try the grande platter, and you'll love it as well as have some left for lunch the next day:)
