Decent house margarita on the small side, wife's hand shaken 1820 a LOT bigger, somewhat better. Sangria a hit, drink that. Beans mediocre (flavorless and "lardy") , rice good, excellent chile rellenos, decent tamale, edible enchilada. All in all, in between 3 and 4, depending...More

Went here with a large group and that usually means bad service. The service was great and attentive. Food was so so. Outside of the restaurant is nothing to look at compared with other Abuelo's. Would go back again.

The food is very good. Favorite is the Chile Relleno and enchiladas and regular salsa with torti chips. Large quantity but price is beginning to get on the high side.

Okay here's a great restaurant. Prices are decent, food was excellent, service was way above average and the atmosphere was perfect. Five stars for sure and it's kind of hiding in North Glendale, so go there and enjoy! The dessert was super as well.

We saw that Abuelo's was the highest rated Mexican restaurant in Amarillo on TripAdvisor. So we decided to stop for a late lunch/early dinner while passing thru on our drive back home from Nevada. So glad we did. Delicious food, great service, reasonable prices.

I do not believe that the information you asked about is on the menu. However I do believe that your waiter can produce a relatively close count.
