“Best Abuelo's I've Been To”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2014

We eat here about twice a month. I've eaten at the Abuelo's in Lubbock and most recently, Amarillo. This is by far and wide the best Abuelo's that I've eaten at. Very polite, attentive staff, nice atmosphere and spectacular food. Lunch menu can't be beat, plenty of food, with their awesome, unlimited chips and salsa, for the same as you'd pay to eat anywhere else for lunch (and most likely somewhere else you'd get less food and not as tasty). Highly recommend.

“Always wonderful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2014

I don't live in Texas, but I look forward to eating at Abuelo's anytime I'm in the DFW or Abilene area. They have consistently good Mexican food. The spinach enchiladas were amazing, as were the chips, queso and salsa.

I love the atmosphere, but it can be a little bit loud, if you are going with friends and trying to visit. Keep that in mind.

“Delicious Seafood”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2014

I always order seafood when eating here, but my husband really enjoys their Mexican food. Their menu is extensive with so many choices! The food is always delicious! It is our favorite place to eat in Abilene. Service is always excellent also!
