The servers were prompt and friendly, always making sure our drinks were refreshed without us having to ask. The atmosphere was really interesting with some neat artwork. But...the food was average. It tasted like everything was microwaved freezer food.

Had dinner last night with 10 friends. They had no problem seating us which was nice. They were quick to get us chips and salsa along with water and our drinks. The El Jefe has a grilled orange slice and comes in a large shaker that can fill your glass a couple of times. Very tasty, very smooth. I couldn't... More

Went there with family, after hearing good reviews from others. Server was really wonderful - warm, knew the offerings, was able to advise us wisely. Food was plentiful and tasty.

The food here is amazing, it is hot fresh and delicious. The staff was great and came by often to make sure we had everything we needed and to refill our drinks. I would recommend this place to anyone.

Went for an evening meal. We sat on the outdoor patio overlooking the waterfront lake. The food was just okay. Wouldn't return for another meal. The staff was very friendly.

We stopped in at the Abuelos on the east side of Wichita, Kansas this afternoon. We haven't eaten there in a very long time because of the way changes were made in the chips and salsa offerings. We noticed when we pulled into the parking lot at about 1:30, they weren't busy, it was a sign, we should have paid... More

We visited here on a Thursday during happy hour and found the place was not busy at all. Their prices are higher than average, but they have a good-sized menu of lower-priced food and drink during their happy hour (4 - 7 p.m.). We started with their grande margaritas. It was a decent margarita, but the happy hour price was... More

Just had to share this one! Upon ordering the Vegetable Fajitas I was offered the choice of flour or corn tortillas or...wait for it...Romaine lettuce. Had to try it and glad I did! Was a little light fare for lunch yet still very filling. Black beans and creamed spinach casserole complimented the entree. Nancy made us feel welcomed and provided... More

This place was very good. The portions and service didn't seem to be as good as Abuelos Lubbock where my son is attending college.

Great ambiance although the size and design can make it quite noisy when the place is filled which is just about every time we go. Diverse selection of well prepared food. This is simply fine dining that never fails to deliver.
