Abuelo's was a great experience for a couple of weary travelers. The restaurant was tastefully decorated and had beautiful paintings. The staff was welcoming and we had great service. Best of all the food was fantastic, plentiful and fresh, not greasy. The light crispy chips and trio of fresh made salsas were complementary. We will be back!

Thin crunchy chips and various salsas automatically served. Wide variety from traditional Tex-Mex to a more Oaxacan flare. Great sangria and perfect margaritas.

The Tuna appetizer is my wife's favorite and it is chemically seared, my wife's favorite. The serving size is inconsistent. The drinks are reasonably priced during 4-7 happy hour weekdays if you sit in the bar area. The food is Tex Mex and is fairly consistent, though I prefer more authentic Mexican which seems to be vacant around Wichita except... More

Enjoyed the hand shaken margarita, and the chile relleno and enchilada, with the green chile sauce of course. Not the most colorful, but yumm!

My wife and I had a wonderful experience at Abuelo's. My lunch chicken chimichanga was great and my wife's shredded beef burrito was also delicious. The service was excellent and the environment was perfect. We especially like the pineapple flavored salsa that they brought out before the meal.

The servers were prompt and friendly, always making sure our drinks were refreshed without us having to ask. The atmosphere was really interesting with some neat artwork. But...the food was average. It tasted like everything was microwaved freezer food.

Had dinner last night with 10 friends. They had no problem seating us which was nice. They were quick to get us chips and salsa along with water and our drinks. The El Jefe has a grilled orange slice and comes in a large shaker that can fill your glass a couple of times. Very tasty, very smooth. I couldn't... More
