Came here for late lunch. Hostess was underwhelmed to see us. Our server was friendly and accommodating. The food? Oh, so very below even average. The only items that were even close to tasty were the enchiladas. Chips come w a trio of salsas plus a small bowl of what must be their house product. Didn't care for any of... More

Have eaten here so many times over the years I can't count. Food is not traditional Tex-mex but good in its own way. Great outdoor patio when the weather is nice. Can get very crowded at lunch.

No way should this be #2 in Lubbock on Trip Advisor. My son and I had the Abuelo's Dip Sampler, Firecracker shrimp tacos, and the Chimichanga. The dips look nothing like the picture in the menu. Both quesos were filled half full. My son devoured the guacamole sampler. The waiter said the shrimp tacos were spicy but they weren't even... More

If your in Lubbock, this is a must stop. Great for family or large groups. Service impecable and Dodd delicious. What more could you ask for? I had the Del Rio plate. Basically a taco and enchilada plate. All delicious inclusión the sides. I had the spinach and the rice.

Took our Brazilian family out for Mexican food and they really enjoyed their dinner. One guest particularly liked the special margarita! Good service in a nice surrounding. No problem getting a large table on a Thursday night, no wait. Kitchen was busy, but the food wasn't too long in coming. Glad we chose Abuelos for a night out family dinner!

We were in town to visit Texas Tech granddaughter and wanted to take her somewhere she had not been on a student budget. Abuelo's has very nice ambience and presence, and the dining experience was great.

Our executive Chef Luis Sanchez has spent decades perfecting our menu, and we boast a wide selection of wood-grilled fajitas, enchiladas, tacos, chile rellenos or Abuelo's unique House Specialties (depending on your location). To compliment your meal, our expert bartenders are masters at crafting signature favorites, including a wide variety of margaritas and swirls. Whatever the occasion, we'll stop at nothing to make your time at Abuelo's a memorable dining experience.
