Late dinner after seeing downtown. The server was the best ever. He was extremely attentive. The food was spicier than we have had at other places but it was good. We had the tortilla soup, steak tacos, chimichangas, and burritos. The only thing that was not wonderful was that the beans and rice were cold for everyone. It was nice... More

I was ion a group of 6 - no reservations, but lead to a table quickly. Food was good, plentiful and the drinks were good. I had "the Boss" margreta - it lasted all night and had a two drink per person limit - first time I've seen that. Everyone at the table enjoyed their food/drinks. The place is bigger... More

We love Abuelo's and so when we saw this one in Bricktown, OK, we had to have lunch there. We sat in the bar section and it was on a Saturday. Surprisingly, it was pretty empty. Our server was extremely friendly. We were served the chips and salsa and Abuelo's has the BEST thin crunchy chips of anywhere and the... More

We live in southeast Colorado and frequently have Mexican food.We're here in Oklahoma City with family. Excellent food! The queso and guacamole are very good. I had enchiladas Cozumel, which was delicious!

Hotel recommended this restaurant and we were happy they did. The combinations and choices offered were "somehow, a little bit different." Loved everything we tried. The margarita was great, the food portions large, the service was extremely attentive and the atmosphere was outstanding. Loved sitting in the inside courtyard, feeling like I was transported.

We've stayed in Bricktown several times, but this was our first time dining at Abuelo's. The ambiance is incredible, the food is outstanding, and the service was very good. We started with a bowl of queso which was delicious. My husband ordered the bacon wrapped pork and I ordered the beef enchiladas. Both were outstanding. Our server, Ted, was very... More

We had not been to this particular Abuelo's in quite some time (circa 2007 when we had moved to Texas). We visited this last Friday night, (Oct 21st) and we are so glad we did. We met our daughter and son-in-law there and all had a great time. Extremely courteous service, hot-off-the-stove-food, some habanero salsa our waiter had made up... More
