If you’re dining out for Mexican food this is not the place to eat. Small over priced portions and not authentic.

Lovely courtyard that hosts bands on summer weekends. I love that they serve yummy seafood dishes with a splash of spice and original recipes! Always excellent service and cocktails are great, try the "swirl"!

Was invited to a business supper with spouse, had most excellent service. It had been a long tough day, but this ended it in a satisfying, relaxing way.

Abuelo's food is always good no matter what location. The dishes are all very good and I like that they serve 3 different salsa with chips

We visit Lubbock occasionally, and we always try to visit Abuelos. We've enjoyed everything we have tried. Our server tonight, Amy, did a great job of taking care of us. I hope we get her the next time we visit.

Good food, but rude hostess set off uncomfortable experience for our group...watch who you hire to put out front. Business at lunch was very busy.

.Good atmosphere except when they have the music so loud you can't hear your own conversation. And, it certainly isn't Tejano music.Food quality & service not up to expectations.

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.
