Description: Real Mexican food is a feast for the senses. From colorful peppers to the sounds of sizzling fajitas all the way to that incredible flavor. Each mouthful is just as much a result of the freshest ingredients as it is a result of the chef's expertise. Abuelo's offers diners the opportunity to experience real Mexican food, combining authentic, made from scratch classic dishes with the rich, subtle flavors of coastal and interior Mexican cuisine. Our executive Chef Luis Sanchez has spent decades perfecting our menu, and we boast a wide selection of wood-grilled fajitas, enchiladas, tacos, chile rellenos or Abuelo's unique House Specialties (depending on your location). To compliment your meal, our expert bartenders are masters at crafting signature favorites, including a wide variety of margaritas and swirls. Whatever the occasion, we'll stop at nothing to make your time at Abuelo's a memorable dining experience.

Reviewed January 23, 2013

My family and I have going to Abuelo's since they very first opened. It has become our favorite Mexican food locations. We always look forward to going there, and the decor is very nice as well. Food is always timely, the food is delicious, and the service and cleanliness is very good as well.

Abuelos is the only Mexican restaurant that we even eat at in the B/CS area.

Went there again last week - the food places in B/CS get packed in the evenings - especially a Friday evening. We called ahead and made reservations. Worked out perfectly.

We're thrilled there's an Abuelo's in College Station and we ate there 2 of three days we visited. It was that good. :)

Impressive decor, even for this chain type restaurant. But, the food was even better! Excellent waiter as well. Easy and quick seating on this weeknight visit. Had a burrito combo which was not only excellent in taste but presented in a very appealing manner. My co-workers fajita plate was delivered crackling from the heat, steam rising, and a delectable smell from the well prepared meat and veggies. Our waiter seemed to enjoy the service he provided, was very friendly and efficient, and deserved the decent tips we left him. If you've got the time for a sit-down meal and are hankerin' for TexMex, then I would suggest this restaurant!

“Good Tex-Mex”
Reviewed December 22, 2012

It was a while since I was there (it is 30 miles away otherwise it might be more frequently). The food and the service were very good, as was the variety on the menu.

“best Mexican for authentic”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

this is probably my very favorite Mexican place in town for authentic w/o that rice and beans as a filler - you won't find that in any place in Mexico I've ever been. I've never been disappointed in their food and I love their fish meals! Wonderful place and large enough you never have to wait in line!
