It has been over two years since we last ate at Abuelo's. A friend of ours was having a birthday dinner and they invited us. This was a week day so the restaurant was not crowded although they did have several birthday celebrations goin on. Atmosphere is pleasant and relaxing.

Randomly chose the restaurant because of Trip Advisor reviews, and very happy with the choice! The restaurant is beautiful inside, and the food presented well. I had the Matamoro plate-beef enchilada, sour cream chicken enchilada, and chile relleno. Each one was completely different and delicious. Prices are very reasonable, and the menu variety is quite large. It was hard to... More

We stopped in for some lunch. We got Lynn as our waiter. This is the second time we have had him and hands down he is the best waiter we have ever had. He anticipates your needs. So I hope you are as fortunate to get Lynn during your visit, however, we have never gotten bad service here. The food... More

Went here with a large group and that usually means bad service. The service was great and attentive. Food was so so. Outside of the restaurant is nothing to look at compared with other Abuelo's. Would go back again.

The food is very good. Favorite is the Chile Relleno and enchiladas and regular salsa with torti chips. Large quantity but price is beginning to get on the high side.

Okay here's a great restaurant. Prices are decent, food was excellent, service was way above average and the atmosphere was perfect. Five stars for sure and it's kind of hiding in North Glendale, so go there and enjoy! The dessert was super as well.

We saw that Abuelo's was the highest rated Mexican restaurant in Amarillo on TripAdvisor. So we decided to stop for a late lunch/early dinner while passing thru on our drive back home from Nevada. So glad we did. Delicious food, great service, reasonable prices.

There are a lot of Tex-Mex places in Amarillo. Abuelo's is consistently good. The service is consistent, and they can handle a large group as well as a couple.
