Stopped by for a quick lunch. Tasty tacos. Plenty of food choices. Parking was difficult but in Lubbock shopping stripes parking is always difficult.

We went here before a basketball game, and the service was fast and efficient. I had the firecracker shrimp salad, and my husband had the chicken fresca salad. Both were great, and I would have been happy with either salad. It was very busy, but the service was fast and we made it to the game on time!

If you're hankering for Abuelo's mexican food, this is a great option that's scaled down. We ate there as a party of 9, when the actual Abuelo's restaurant had a 90-minute wait. This place was not busy and served our tasty food quickly and with friendly service. This was a great option for us, and I would definitely return. I... More

A bit pricy, but some of the freshest-tasting tacos I have had. I had the steak taco and the cheeseburger taco. Steak taco really good, with lots of fresh, crisp veggies. Could not taste cheese in cheeseburger taco but lots of tasty meat. Good beans and rice. Self serve condiment bar assures your tacos and salads are to your taste.... More

We were recommended to come here by staff at the Buddy Holly Museum. Excellent choice. Great menu, good food and good service. Very popular, we were lucky to get a table.

Some of the best Mexican food I have ever had, would go back again, and again. It was a very busy place but was there on a Friday night so expected no less. Food was very good.

Brought the two little ones at the end of a log, long travel day. Family friendly, clean upbeat. Service was good and fast. Prices average. Food probably the best we've had from a 'fast food' tex mex place. We had the #1 tacos and #3 burritos along with kids quesadillas. Beans and rice are especially good.

I am a true fan of Abuelo's main restaurant so I thought I'd stop in the taqueria for lunch today. I ordered the #2 with firecracker shrimp and bourbon chicken as my taco choices. I also got a side of guacamole and chips to start with. When you enter, you order from a counter and they give you a buzzer... More

We were pleasantly surprised how good the food was. But at 8:30 on Thurs evening the music on the sound system was hideous, enough to give you indigestion.

The food was great! The casual atmosphere was perfect for kids and grown ups! My son ordered the enchiladas and my husband and I ordered the fajitas for 2. All excellent! My granddaughter, 9, and other son, 4, liked the queso! Definitely will return!
