Abuelo’s Mexican Restaurants recently celebrated its 25th anniversary, and we joined the fun by tasting new and traditional menu items. We also metÂ the restaurant’s executive chef, Luis Sanchez, and additional corporate staff who were in town from Lubbock where Abuelo’s is based.
Now through August 4, you too can celebrate with the Silver Anniversary Menu. This three-course meal starts off with fresh guacamole, your choice of the sauteed chicken zucchini, ribeye steak or enchiladas and traditional flan for dessert. Don’t forget to order a margarita! The limited-time Silver Celebration Margarita comes with Cuervo Silver Tequila. St. Germain Liqueur and lime juice.
