Abuelo’s Mexican Restaurant
The story of Abuelo’s begins in the summer of 1989, when entrepreneurs James Young, Chuck Anderson and Dirk Rambo opened the first Abuelo’s Mexican restaurant in Amarillo, Texas. Our founders’ goal was simple. To open a restaurant serving delicious, made-from-scratch Mexican food at everyday prices, as well as to create a place where guests of all ages could come together to experience the unique flavors, along with the art and culture of Mexico. What came to life was a truly unique dining experience – authentic tastes of Mexico, with family-style dining in an elevated, yet comfortable setting.
