My husband and I like to eat at Abuelo's when we're visiting Knoxville. We stopped in for a late lunch, not wanting to eat too much. Pleasant seating in the bar area. Charissa was fantastic. Enjoyed our beverages and food. Will be back next visit...More

To start off, let me just say that if you don't enjoy reading long reviews, the gist of this one is that you should eat at Abuelo's. Everything from the food to the service to the salsa and chips and sodas (yes, even the soda)...More

Time for dinner after running errands… We had to decide where to go for dinner and we wanted it to somewhere where we hadn’t been or at least hadn’t been recently? It had been several years since we’d dined at Abuelo’s… As customers can quickly...More

We always stop at this location when travelling in the area. The food is always good, served hot, with complimentary chips and salsa. Nice touch - they always ask if we want to go beverages - which is great on the road!

My husband, daughter and I had lunch today at this restaurant. We ordered off of the lunch menu included in the back of the regular menu. Guess I paid more attention to the number of calories in each dish then looking at the prices. When...More

Tex-Mex in Turkey Creek in an upscale strip mall. Menu is fresh, different and more exciting than the typical chain entrees. Many choices, including vegetarian options. I paid $18.50 for an entree, which I consider high for a Mexican restaurant. But it was worth every...More

Presentation and proportions cannot hide lack of food quality. It tasted like mass produced, chain restaurant food, and it is hard to mess up fajitas! If you are into fresh, authentic food, or high quality food, this is not the place for you.
