Abuelo’s Ranked as Nation’s Top Mexican Chain Restaurant



Lubbock, Texas-based Abuelo’s Mexican Restaurants has been ranked as the nation’s top Mexican restaurant chain in a recent survey conducted by a leading national consumer rating magazine. This is the third consecutive time Abuelo’s has ranked as the number one Mexican restaurant chain in the report that is released every two years by the national publication.

The results were based on a nearly 48,000-person survey involving 110,500 restaurant visits in which survey participants were asked to rate the best/worst aspects at 102 restaurant chains around the nation.

Abuelo’s ranked highest in the Mexican dining category with a score of 86, based on rankings in taste, value, service and mood. Abuelo’s score was the fourth highest of all restaurants surveyed, including such well known, high-end chains as McCormick & Schmick’s, Ruth’s Chris and P.F. Chang’s.

“We are thrilled to once again be ranked as the number one Mexican chain and one of the leading overall chains in the nation by this reputable publication,” said Robert Lin, president of Food Concepts International, Abuelo’s parent company. “This is the third time in a row we’ve received this top ranking, and are very thankful to our loyal guests for giving us such high ratings. We also congratulate our operators and team members on achieving this high honor once again.”

Since its first opening in 1989, Abuelo’s has consistently been on the leading edge of Mexican cuisine, combining menu creativity, outstanding food and beverage quality, colorful plate presentations and superior service in an impressive Mexican courtyard-themed atmosphere.
