Went with a group of 7 and was able to reserve through Open Table link from TA. Unless you are thirsty stick with the medium margarita as the jumbo is basically a pitcher. Food is good, but not outstanding. Nothing to complain about as portions are adequate and if you ask they bring a spicier sauce. The combo platters are the best deal allowing a couple of choices. We will eat here again when in town.

Business lunch and family dinner. Good food and good service. Wait staff really hustles during busy times.

My boys and I enjoyed the food. They have an interesting blend of cabbage and spices that they bring out with chips and salsa. The meals were generous in size and they do offer vegetarian meals.
The service was good, but not exceptional.
The price was fair for the portion sizes.

Growing up in Austin, I grew up knowing good Tex-Mex. We have spent the last two evenings eating dinner in this establishment, because the first was incredible. We will also be back tomorrow. Anyone who doesn't give El Abuelito a five-star rating, doesn't understand "Tex-Mex". La comida esta muy deliciosa, y las margaritas tienen limas frescas. It has been a true delight eating here, and a Daniel Estrela, gracias por complacer mi colegio español.

Looking for a place that serves good Mexican food? . I myself would not recommend this restaurant.The spices in the food made it taste a little different, not bad but different. I come from a city with many Mexican restaurants in this one would not make it in Denver. Although the portions were big in that food was hot again it didn’t have that Mexican flavor. Slow waiter because he had too many people to serve. Service was still OK.
