Wonderful choice for before or after your special event in College Station. Unlimited chips and ritas are always fun at Abuelo's. The menu is massive but each dish is created and served with care. Our group always enjoys eating at Abuelo's !

Our first but definitely not our last visit to this Mexican restaurant. The atmosphere is beautiful and the service delightful. The food choices are wide ranged so everyone that find something they like. We especially liked the swirl sangria margarita and the chimichangas.

When we want fajitas we like Abuelo's. I like the salsa options and my husband likes the mushroom appetizer. The service just depends on who you get. We've had some really fantastic servers and some that were just doing the minimum, tipping accordingly we like...More

First time visiting, sat at the bar. Friendly staff , great margaritas, Had the house brand version , nothing fancy but it was great. Ordered the plate called "Grande". Reasonably priced and was enough food for 2 people. Would visit again.

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.
