We just arrived into Oklahoma to meet my brother Patrick who lives here. Since he was on his lunch break he suggested Mexican buffet at Abuela s since it was close to his job. So after we get our rental car from Hertz and the use of the GPS off we go. The restaurant was bigger than we thought. Pat... More

It was okay, they weren't very busy but we still had quite a wait for food. Kept trying to bring more chips. My husbands water kept getting refilled with warm water. After the 3rd half refill there was no ice. The server looked really confused when he asked for some ice for his icewater.

I live this chain and am never disappointed. I was seated promptly and my waiter was you taking my drink order immediately. He food is always fresh and has a lot of flavor. I've tried several dishes and have never been disappointed. Make sure to stop in next time you are in OKC!

Had a couple drinks at the bar and than were seated for dinner. Chips were bland and the 3 different salsas were all average at best. The waitress or kitchen forgot about our appetizer so when our dinners came out we just cancelled it. Dinners were average Tex-Mex fare, nothing to write home about. Seems like a place that may...

Visited This Abuelos on Friday with a group of 8 friends. We arrived at 4:00 to beat the crowd. We were seated promptly. The server took our orders after 15 minutes and of course it took him a bit to get our drinks so we understood. But we waited 20 minutes to get our food and all of our drink... More

The atmosphere had a Mexican flavor, open and not too packed in. The menu had plenty of choices with a large drink menu. The service was very good. I found the food rather average. The best part was the pineapple/cilantro salsa. In summary I would say it was "OK".

We are big fan of Mexican food and was not disappointed at all. Food was good . I took Sautéed chicken zucchini which was delicious specially the creamy zucchini sauce. My husband took chicken fajita which was ok but not close as what you have tasted in other places. Ambience was very nice.

We tried this place early on a Thursday night and it was not too crowded. We had a reservation and were seated immediately. The service was friendly and attentive. The menu offers lots of choices. We enjoyed the homemade salsas and guacamole. Each entree was cooked properly and tasted good!

Nothing horrible. Just very average. In every way. I had the fajitas. Suffice to say they weren't sizzling. Service was hot and cold. After ignoring to take the used dishes I asked for them to be removed. She took half and left the rest. They were still there when I left.
