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.

“First Class Mexican Fare”
Reviewed March 6, 2014

Food, service and atmosphere are always top-notch. Menu is varied and just a little more interesting than many other restaurants. One of my favorites.

“Wonderful Food!”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

We come here often, it is the best. We love everything we have had off the menu. Like most restaurants in Lubbock there is usually a wait. But well worth it.

“Great Tex Mex in the Hub city”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

This is some of the best Tex Mex in Lubbock! Service is always efficient and polite, good atmosphere and a very good value for the money. Enchilada are excellent and the choice of sauces is very good and you can customize to your on liking.

“A Lubbock tradition”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

A great place to eat but sometimes the wait is too long. We have now figured out a plate that the two of us can split and not leave hungry. We have had a couple of not so good meals there but not for a while now. The outdoor patio in the summer is a lot of fun, wish it was bigger and wasn't so hard to get some service.
