Love the atmosphere, great service and good location. On a Sunday afternoon this place was packed, with a 30-minute wait. Many tables with 10 people or more, a good sign. We bellied up to the bar to wait and the bartender said we were welcome...More

Abuelo’s is usually the best Mexican restaurant in town, but this time they were a little off their game. I ordered the Pescado Guerrero and it is usually awesome. This time the white wine sauce was way too thin and covered everything on the plate...More

Had a fabulous lunch at this establishment. Have tried this chain in Arizona. Had a unique Tex Mex menu at this location. Some tasty choices. Great General Manager that made a point of checking in on everyone - a nice touch. Highly recommend.

My grilled chicken salad was one of the best with the citrus and strawberries in it. The peach bellini was sooooo good too!

I was pretty excited when we were driving in town and stumbled upon Abuelo’s after having a really good experience in Tyler, Tx. They didn’t disappoint! We had wonderful service, delicious food, and the place is very well maintained.

Have been to Abuelos twice since moving back to College Station. The food quality has really been disappointing. New menus and higher prices too. Shredded beef enchiladas were super dry and the beef extremely tough. Same with the chicken enchiladas...dry with some unidentifiable chicken pieces....More

Description
Real Mexican food is a feast for the senses. From colorful peppers to the sounds of sizzling fajitas all the way to that incredible flavor. Each mouthful is just as much a result of the freshest ingredients as it is a result of the chef's expertise. Abuelo's offers diners the opportunity to experience real Mexican food, combining authentic, made from scratch classic dishes with the rich, subtle flavors of coastal and interior Mexican cuisine. 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.
