You are taste how fresh everything is even down to the complimentary salsa. The fajitas so tender and juicy, the beef chimichanga bursting with flavor, generous portions. Wasn't wild about the spicy shrimp appetizer with a peanut sauce. The Abuelos in Lubbock unfortunately is dark, overcrowded,dingy feel, and the food is not fresh.

I sit at the bar and eat lunch every Thursday for the past 10 years. The bartender Marcus has been taking care of my every need this entire time he is a true friend to me and my family. His customer service is second to none. He knows what I want and never has to ask. This establishment is excellent... More

I have eaten at this one and the one in Lubbock Texas and they are both great ! The one in Midland is fairly new and is just gorgeous ! They spent a ton on this new building and interior. It is always super busy but usually doesn't take that long to get in and out. I recommend this place... More

We were in Midland for one night so we could fly out the next day. As usual we relied on TA to steer us to a good place and this restaurant didn't disappoint. Probably one of the best Mexican places I've been too but we come from the Northeast so we don't have places like this. Service, food, drinks, atmosphere,... More

We had the prime rib for Sunday brunch and it was very tasty. It took quite a while to be served but gave us time to have our delicious Margaritas. Make sure you get there early because the line and wait time is always bad on Sunday.

Everything I've ever eaten at Abuelo's has been outstanding. The service is top notch, the atmosphere is airy and upbeat, but the food is the best Tex-Mex you can get. Sure wish this restaurant could go national.

The food here is very delicious! I love the salsa sampler you get with the tortilla chips. I ordered the pork tenderloin abrigada it was very good and the pork tenderloin is very tender. The enchiladas are great and authentic. One con was that we sat close to the entrance by the hostess area and it was cold that day... More

The quality of service and the quality of food were most excellent. Our server Manuel(hope that is the correct spelling) was five stars all the way.
