So found myself here with my team whilst in town for business. This is the typical chips and salsa on the table, fajitas sizzling kind of Mexican place. Good atmosphere, good food, good service. Gives me the impression that it will be a place that is consistently on the better side of predictable but good. Nothing unusual or special but... More

Dined here on a Friday afternoon for a late lunch. For was served hot, service was very good! Ambiance is nice, but sound/noise level is very intense. There were only 6 tables/booths occupied when we dined, but several of those dining were very loud. There is something about being seated 20-30 feet away and being able to hear the conversation...

Tasty food. I do not remember what they called my dish but it was a large combo of enchiladas and a chili reyano. Great chips, they have a nice lightness to them. Waiter was good. Artwork in the place is creepy, one painting of a guy with an oversized head, and his woman with a tiny one. Yuck while your... More

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.
