Have been twice in the past couple of weeks. The food and the service is very good. They have the crispest chips ever!

The chicken Fajitas, enchiladas and the stuffed tenderloin medallions are all excellent. Their amber beer and margaritas are also excellent. The lunch menu is plenty.

This is our second visit and I can promise it will be our LAST! The salsas are not good, the service sucked each time we went and this last time was the final straw. We went on New Years Day and they were not crowded at all. We sat there for 20 minutes before our drink order was even taken.... More

Great experience. Food was delicious and wait time was minimal. Service was excellent. Stayed at a nearby hotel, which got us a free queso (valued at $7). Would visit again.

I've eaten a few times at Abuelo's in Lakeland, Florida and found it to be very good. I decided to try it in Arlington, Texas tonight. I had the Pork Tenderloin Abrigada, bacon wrapped pork tenderloin, enchiladas, papas and ranchero beans. Abuelos's food is not spicy but it is very flavorful, very enjoyable.

Abuelo's is a more upscale Mexican restaurant than most in this area. My husband ordered beef medallions with stuffed shrimp wrapped with bacon. The steak was not very thick so he should have ordered medium rare instead of medium. There was a small container of wine sauce which was helpful. The shrimp were very large and had been grilled. They... More

The Restaurant has a pleasant interior, it is divided up and is not as loud as many restaurants are now. The service was excellent. We had an order of Queso Dlablo (Queso with addition of Meat) and it was excellent. We had the Pork Tenderloin Abrigada which was excellent. The Shredded Beef Enchiladas to us are the best.

Nice place for a quiet dinner. The service was excellent and we didn't have to wait long to be seated. Try the talapia tacos. Very tasty with a delicious mango twist. Ample portions so bring a hearty appetite. A manager stopped by our table to make sure everything was satisfactory. Made my birthday memorable. I look forward to our next... More
