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.

Our place of business uses Abuelo's for catering and they are so wonderful and friendly to work with. We also do special staff lunches several times a year and have never had a complaint. Great food & service!

This was our 4th different Abuelo's and they were all consistently good. The chips are thin, crispy and warm. The salsas are flavorful with a mild green, medium red and hot burnt red. I get the Durango Burrito and it has always been excellent. My varies her choices and has never been disappointed. We like that they are relatively quiet... More

We loved the thin chips and varied salsas! My burrito was bland and its cheese sauce tasted like the processed stuff, however the enchiladas with chili sauce were good. Service was fine, facilities were clean and the ambiance was fine for such a place. Recommended, although nothing memorable!

Hit Abuelos during happy hour for cocktails & street tacos. The food is very consistent. Wait staff does a nice job. No surprises!

For a chain restaurant, this is one of the best. I mostly prefer mom and pop Mexican restaurants but the cooks here know what they're doing. Food was great and service was excellent. Clean, well managed restaurant.

Abuelos is great authentic Mexican food. Every dish I have tried was a home run.excellent sauces. The three salsas served as an appetizer are pretty skimpy for one person let alone 2 people. I always have to ask for a large bowl of the house medium salsa.

Thank Dave K
