The food here is solid. This is a franchise, but a well-executed one. Drink specials and happy hour food are a nice draw. Their bar snacks are excellent and make this a good place to land for a cold one.

Excellent service and reasonable prices. One of us had the chicken breast with zucchini, peppers and corn. Other diner had beef fajita salad. Chips were light and with three salsas to dip them in. Definitely will visit again.

The menu items presented at this fine Mexican restaurant are absolutely delicious! We love the appetizers and the many dinner plates. The atmosphere is like no other Mexican restaurant. This is one of our very favorites.

The food was good and the service was good! It was a holiday weekend and Bricktown was really busy but they clearly didn't have enough servers to seat all the areas of the restaurant so there was a longer wait time to be seated (and reservations aren't accepted). Other than the long wait at the beginning, it was a great... More

We went to a birthday party for our friend here. This place is so much bigger than I expected, so I was a little leery of what kind of food we would have. It was really good! Sometimes BIG restaurants are lacking the quality because of the volume produced. Not so at Abuelo's. Because we were in a large group,... More

Here for the weekend for a convention and this was the best rated place to the hotel. Ordered combo fajitas. Unusual presentation at least to me. The chicken was lined up together next to the steak ditto next to the shrimp. Obviously not grilled together with the onions and peppers like back home. Ordered corn tortillas but got flour. Hungry... More

This place is great! Always enjoy eating there when in town. The staff is super friendly and the food is reasonably priced and taste great. You won't go wrong here. My favorite are the fajitas. Cold beer is also available.
