Have been eating here for years. Have never had bad service or a bad meal. I usually get the Brocheta De Filete ( Beef Tenderloin) and my wife always gets the Ala Ambre De Camaron (Bacon Wrapped Shrimp) Always a staple for us.

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.

Good service..great food..I rate it as one of the top 5 Mexican restaurant in Amarillo. Plenty of parking..only about a block west of I 27 on 45th street. Even at there busy times wait is not to long. Nice waiting area or sit in the bar.
