Great New Mexico style mexican food, a little heat very flavorful. Pricing for lunch excellant dinner medium . Resturant is very noisy due to way its built and all the tile,but makes you think you are in a big family gathering. Good service especially at the bar.

Great place for lunch or dinner! Wonderful flavors and many selections, and great atmosphere. Service is top notch. I've never had avocado enchiladas! What a treat! Price is great for the quality and quantity! Family friendly. They also have a party room for special celebrations,

Obviously a local favorite. Tons of people waiting on a Saturday at 1:30, but the three of us only really waited for about fifteen minutes. Loved the three salsas. One was a smoky, garlicky red. The middle tomatillo sauce had a limy, fruity flavor. Very unique and yummy. The third was a less flavorful red with more chunky vegetables. We... More

Abuelo's is my all time favorite place to eat in Abilene. The food is always amazing, hot and fresh. The service is spot on and the ambience is beautiful. My favorite dish is the Enchiladas de Cozumel and goes great with a Mojito.

If you want a good, quality Mexican food meal - I will recommend Abuelo's. The staff is friendly and the atmosphere super except a little noisy. Many tiimes you will have to wait for a table as this place is generally busy or you can call ahead. I consider this place well worth the wait!

It is very rare to walk in and sit during their peek hours, but they have the best mexican food in town! My favorite mixed drink is the sangria swirl, or margarita. Always a festive atmosphere and it's a beautiful restaurant! Great place for get togethers or dates.

This is a great place to go with your friends for a fun time and pretty good eats. It is a little on the greasy side and not altogether the freshest, but it won't be the worst. If you are over 50, eat just a little so your stomach won't hurt. You will have a great time!
