One of the top restaurants in Lubbock! Excellent variety of food, but tops in Mexican food. You can't go wrong here.

We have been eating here for years and is always a treat. Best margaritas in town and upscale Mexican food at its best

A very high end chain restaurant with fresh food choices. Everything from Mexican to Tex Mex to sushi grade tuna. I had several appetizers: mini chimes, cheese balls with jalapeño and a great shrimp dish. You can't go wrong here. They have plenty of indoor seating and an outdoor courtyard in good weather. Don't miss this place.

Food and service are always the best. I have been getting the pork tenderloin with enchiladas. Never disappointed with the enchiladas.

Good food. A little different than your everyday TexMex food. Service can be a little slow sometimes.

We can always count on a great meal at Abuelo's! Our food is always delicious and served hot, no matter what we order. The spice is just right and it's a very good value for the price. It's perfect for couples or large families too!

Just plain dependable quality, service and taste every time with every separate menu item I've ever selected! Never disappointing. Just go enjoy! Three tasty salsa's will get you started down a delightfully flavorful road!

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.
