The potatoes are great, food and service was good. Electricity went out but still took great care of us. Mike is a fantastic server. The special Margaritas were really yummy.

Good food, good service, great salsa options. And the potatoes...yum. Prices are average. The sangria is worth the trip every time.

It was just average. The prices are average too. I like my food warmer from the oven. Our waiter was attentive. Chips and salsa were good.

Abuelo’s is one of my absolute favorites. We hadn’t been in awhile, so tonight was the night. I love everything to eat at Abuelo’s.....tonight’s choices were sangria swirl, chicken enchilada, and guacamole enchilada. Delicious!!! Lots of food which means enough for lunch tomorrow.

Wichita is not known for their Mexican food, so this was a pleasant surprise. Above average food that is reasonably priced. Fresh ingredients contribute to the overall flavor. A little pricey for the area, but not unreasonable for decent fare.

Drinks and appetizers super slow!!! Waitress disappeared for 30 minutes!!! Food is decent but way overpriced. Used to come here more often for my husbands favorite dish of mahi mahi which they took off the menu . We will not be returning.

First time I had ever eaten here. Nice decor. We were seated promptly and service was prompt as well. We were served with a trio of salsa's and chips, which was a nice twist. The lunch menu was a little different than typical Mexican, which...More

The food isn't bad, but the prices are way above what service and food is worth. Perhaps it's due to the proximity to the airport, but one could drive a couple of blocks farther and do be6.
