If you enjoy Mexican food, Abuelos is one of my favorites in town. Just off of I-27 on 45th, it's easy to get to. Service is very good and quick. Food quality is very consistently and very good.

Service was good and knowledgeable about menu. Food was a bit pricey, even for lunches, but delicious. I will return to eat the flavorful tex/mex cuisine again. The steaks and seafood are my favorites along with any of the Mexican dishes.

We were travelling through Amarillo and wanted something small and authentic for dinner. Abuelo's was probably the place - but a very long time ago. The restaurant is huge and has the look of some of the popular chains like The Cheesecake Factory. It is very popular - there was a wait. Our server was forgetful, probably due to how... More

Had dinner there after a long day of traveling. It was very busy but we were seated fast and or service was very good. Attractive place that is very big but seems smaller because it is broke up into smaller areas. Big selection of food. I had the fajitas and they were good but not great. Also had the premium...

Menu was slightly different than average. Food slightly above average. Still will not be my "have to go to" place but will go back. I also tend not to give 5's so other people will probably give it a 5

The food is the best Mexican Food in Amarillo you should try the rejanno and enchilada on the lunch menu. My favorite is the "Manjar" if you are hungry, my wife loves the "Matamoros". The atmosphere is great and the service is outstanding. I suggest you ask for Lynn when you go in, he is the best.

The beef medallions and shrimp dinner is excellent. Also good are the papas (potato casserole). And the regular Mexican dishes such as enchiladas also are good.
