Didn't receive what I ordered. I didn't say anything about it though. No ice in my tea. And dirty silverware. 3rd bad experience in a row.

Food was awesome but didn't have any way of heating it up so had to eat it lukewarm.... Portions were great, chips and hot sauce included- great deal for quality food.

The steak wrapped in bacon along with the bacon wrapped shirmp is so very good. The spinach with mushrooms is great as a vegetable or a dip.

When we get together for birthday dinners, Abuelos is often where we choose to dine. They are always busy so be prepared for a little wait, but it is worth it. Great service and once you order they are pretty fast at delivering your order.

The food was good but very average. I would eat here again, but it would not be one of my first choices if I knew of a better Mexican restaurant. The staff were friendly and attentive. I liked their decorations and lights in the shape of small trees inside the restaurant. which were festive.

I came in just before closing time but they seated me and were respectful throughout. I knew I was coming in late and they could have been angry with me, but they weren't and my waitress was incredibly nice. The chips and salsa is good but I definitely suggest getting the queso. I've been here twice and got a quesadilla... More

We decided on Mexican food so we went to Abuelo's. Maybe they were having a bad night not sure but the food was good and the service was so slow. It took a while for the server to bring our drinks and even longer to bring out the food 45 minutes later.

Much has changed since my last visit to Abuelos in Abilene. New decorations and new menu. The food is still very consistent in quality but the portions have definitely been down sized. Chips and salsa are still the fillers. A must stop in Dallas or Abilene Texas- wish we had them in California.

I visited Abilene a few years back from SW Colorado, and was recommended to check Abuelo's out. It was what was told, very good food with excellent drinks. I still think of this place to eat on occasion, will visit again when in the area.
