They serve some of the best Mexican and Tex Mex food you'll ever have with a nice menu selection in a comfortable and enjoyable atmosphere. The one down side is their reservation system. They don't take a specific time reservation but rather a reservation "window" that they say will have you seated within 30 minutes of your reservation time. We made a 7:30pm reservation a day early and arrived at 7:20pm. We were not seated until 8:25pm over an hour after our "reservation time. Granted it was a busy Saturday evening but this was an unacceptable wait time with reservations. We spoke with a manager about our displeasure with the wait and were compensated (1) appetizer for our party of five. Not sufficient in my opinion.

We had a get together with a couple friends and went for a late lunch. All of us ordered the lunch beef burritos and they we huge!. The beans and rice were also inside, which I had never had that way before. - different, but very good. Pre-lunch chips and 3 salsas were also good. Service was good and the food came out quickly and very hot. Nice decor, interesting mural on back wall.

We love going to Abuelo's for the food. They have an extensive menu and are reasonably priced. Chips and salsa are always complimentary. It's a family-friendly atmosphere in the dining area. The bar area offers decent seating and TV's to watch the game. They accommodate larger parties well. However, the service leaves a lot to be desired. More times than not, the service is slow and it takes awhile to get drinks refilled.

My wife and I often go to Mexicantown for good Mexican food. We are very glad to be able to get food just as good closer to home. We've been to Abuelos many times and always have a good experience. The food, service, atmosphere and value are all outstanding!
