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. The Sour... More

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

With this being a tex mex restaurant I wasn't expecting anything out of the ordinary but I admit their food is above average, I had the beed enchiladas with the tamales, delicious, price was average. I would definitely come back to this place.

We've been to Abuelo's a few times and it never lets me down. We had a state football game in Arlington and right away I knew that's where we would eat dinner. The restaurant itself is beautiful. It's so bright and colorful. I had the fideo con camaron and it was amazing! It was shrimp in a cream sauce with... More

Our waiter was Caesar. He assisted us in choosing dishes, and made sure that our dining experience was everything one could hope for. The restaurant was clean, and ALL of the staff members were especially pleasant and greeted us, even though they weren't our wait staff. I can't say enough how awesome the food was. We ate and then ordered... More

I have eaten there several times and it is always so good. They have so many different sauces to chose from. My favorite is their green sauce with a slight pineapple taste. Last time I ordered the Monterrey. 4 different enchiladas, one being spinach and another avocado. Their spinach enchiladas are the absolute best. Instead of refried beans, I always... More

I have eaten here many times and have always been pleased with my meals. My last visit was solo, and I indulged without having to share. A mini-Mexican shrimp cocktail, with the delicious avocado cream in the bottom was paired with a full on guacamole side. My entree was the street taco version of the wonderful firecracker shrimp.
