Excellent meals with a Daily Special. I love the homemade rolls served at dinner. Show up about 15 minutes earlier than you anticipate to eat, especially if after 6:00 or on weekends. It does get crowded easily due to the awesome food! It definitely is worth the wait.

We go to Abel's weekly for their various lunch specials. Everyday, they have 2 different items that are the lunch special. Everything we've had there is great! Such good food at such a reasonable price! And they give you plenty. Some places give a little less on their plate specials but Abel's does not. Nice, down home atmosphere and friendly... More

This place is amazing! They have the basics for breakfast and they do it right! The biscuits are to die for. The staff is so friendly. I wished I lived in the area because I would visit once a week. The best Mother's Day brunch ever!

Very good local place, with good American food on offer. I visited three times in two days because it's my host's favourite spot. No wonder. He's been coming here for twenty five years and is welcomed like an old friend, by other customers, by the staff and by the owner, Abel. Both breakfast and late lunch were good. Anyone ever... More

I loved their old location, reminded me of Granny's home. However, Abel is a sweet guy who has been serving up good ole southern favorites that take you back to Granny's kitchen. Love their meatloaf and never miss out on their biscuits. Their gravy is TRULY Texas!

This was a quaint little place with just plain old home cooking and friendly service. I was surprised at the variety on the menu. Lots of good things to pick from. The fried fish special was wonderful.

We are a big fan of Abels and go there every time my wife and I are in town visiting family. Abels is now in a much larger place but the food choices have not changed. In fact, the menu changes constantly and everything taste fresh and home made. I think we have had nearly everything on the menu at... More
