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

Went for an evening meal. We sat on the outdoor patio overlooking the waterfront lake. The food was just okay. Wouldn't return for another meal. The staff was very friendly.

We stopped in at the Abuelos on the east side of Wichita, Kansas this afternoon. We haven't eaten there in a very long time because of the way changes were made in the chips and salsa offerings. We noticed when we pulled into the parking lot at about 1:30, they weren't busy, it was a sign, we should have paid... More
