Back in June 2018 we had some really bad service. We have been here a few times and gave it another try. This was more like our other experiences here. Solid food and friendly service.

Good food! It was a little noisy. The waiters and waitresses were nice and friendly, but you could tell they were used.

Dinner the night before graduation. Part of the group had never been to an Abuelos and very very pleased. Food was good, there were 9 and all the food came out at once which is unusual.

The food is always pretty good but the noisey environment detracts significantly from the enjoyment. Also feel ignored by the wait staff except for the obligatory order taking and the “how is your meal.” Took 10 minutes to get a salsa refill and by then...More

Formerly one of my favorite overall restaurants in Lubbock but the last two visits over a period of 1 month have been disappointing especially during lunch time. The wait at 11:30 AM for a table of three lasted over 30 minutes and those seating seemed...More

Real Mexican food is a feast for the senses. From colorful peppers to the sounds of sizzling fajitas all the way to that incredible flavor. Each mouthful is just as much a result of the freshest ingredients as it is a result of the chef's expertise. Abuelo's offers diners the opportunity to experience real Mexican food, combining authentic, made from scratch classic dishes with the rich, subtle flavors of coastal and interior Mexican cuisine. Our executive Chef Luis Sanchez has spent decades perfecting our menu, and we boast a wide selection of wood-grilled fajitas, enchiladas, tacos, chile rellenos or Abuelo's unique House Specialties (depending on your location). To compliment your meal, our expert bartenders are masters at crafting signature favorites, including a wide variety of margaritas and swirls. Whatever the occasion, we'll stop at nothing to make your time at Abuelo's a memorable dining experience.
