Sorry, but Abuelo's was just not that great. We've only been there a few times since they opened and won't miss it at all.

I think a lot of people feel this way, but I'm not one of them. I grew up in west Texas (Abilene) and it was one of the best Mexican restaurants in town. It's definitely not authentic by any means. I always called it gourmet Mexican food just because it was definitely some gringo making those recipes. Being in CS for some time now, Polly's has been my favorite go to Mexican restaurant.

I just hope they survive these times....

Love Abuelo's. Great bar, food and service. Sad to see them go.

I grew up in Fort Stockton so we considered Abilene east Texas. I liked the bar area and the papas as a side dish.

Yes.
Talking to a friend about it and we said it wasn't bad just never a thought of being in our rotation for some reason.

I am assuming they are the Enterprise rental cars that are not in use due to the decrease in travel? Their rental office in the retail strip next door.

Northgate? Not the store in Eastgate? I didn't know there was an army/navy store in Northgate.

Sarge's has been there for decades.

I did an inspection of Sarge's in November and he pointed at the shelves with all the Corps awards, badges, etc. He said "you know that used to be about 60% of my sales, they all bought from me and now A&M is selling them at the MSC and it has dropped my sales to almost nothing." Another business going out at least partially due to A&M competing with them.

abuelos was destined to go out of business...

They should have copied the format of Chuys

What do you mean by that?

They had been around for at least 12 years in CS.

The volume and the traffic simply wasn't there. Per square foot, they generated X dollars, where as Chuys would have been 3x the amount.

That's a shame about Sarge's. One of the last two College Main institutions remaining.

I don't think Abuelo's would even do 2x their University Drive location if they were at 6 and Harvey. It's just kind of a forgettable experience. Not great, not terrible.

Abuelos was completely forgettable each and every time I went there.

Margaritas and tres leches we're always solid. That said, I thought they went downhill well before COVID.
