Great food and great atmosphere! Excellent menu, we usually get the Enchiladas del Cozumel. Lots of variety on the menu, I think there is something for everybody. My wife loves the Margaritas and I love the Sangria. They have a large bar area also. Plenty...More

First off, the Chile con queso is cloying. I don't know why it would be so rich and sweet. I ordered the barramundi which was cooked beautifully. However, it was drowned in a sauce which killed the flavor of the fish for the most part....More

This place serves good Tex Mex food. Simple, straightforward. Importantly for us, they offered gluten free and vegetarian options. Our server was knowledgeable about gluten free options, even though they weren't detailed on the mebu

As long as you tell your waiter/waitress you are vegan or want a vegan meal they can accommodate. The refried beans are not vegan and neither is the Mexican rice. The guacamole is delicious and the staff is very friendly.

Wonderful choice for before or after your special event in College Station. Unlimited chips and ritas are always fun at Abuelo's. The menu is massive but each dish is created and served with care. Our group always enjoys eating at Abuelo's !

Our first but definitely not our last visit to this Mexican restaurant. The atmosphere is beautiful and the service delightful. The food choices are wide ranged so everyone that find something they like. We especially liked the swirl sangria margarita and the chimichangas.

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.
