New Abuelo’s Mexican Restaurant to Open in Tyler this October

New restaurant scheduled to open at The Village at Cumberland Park

LUBBOCK, Texas – Construction is well underway on the new Abuelo’s Mexican restaurant, which is scheduled to open at 8926 South Broadway at The Village at Cumberland Park in mid-October. This will be Abuelo’s first location in Tyler and the company’s 40th location nationwide.

The new Abuelo’s will feature approximately 7,700-square-feet of interior space and will include an outdoor, trellised patio. It will also feature a natural light skylight over an interior courtyard. The restaurant will seat approximately 295 guests and will employ between 80-100 employees.

The new location will offer the same great Mexican food available in all Abuelo’s restaurants, featuring creative, made-from-scratch Mexican specialties, superior service and affordable prices.

“Our theme at Abuelo’s is ‘welcome to our home,’” said Robert Lin, president of Food Concepts International, Abuelo’s parent company. “Our goal is to offer our guests an opportunity to experience diverse flavors every day, in an authentic Mexican villa with superior service at a great value – whether it’s for a quick lunch with co-workers or a casual dinner with family or friends.”

Abuelo’s, which has consistently been on the leading edge of Mexican cuisine, is famous for its creative, made-from-scratch Mexican cuisine, superior service and affordable prices. Abuelo’s menu selections combine authentic standards with the rich, subtle flavors of coastal and interior Mexican cuisine. Abuelo’s House Specialties, which combine beef tenderloin, fresh shrimp, Barramundi, salmon and other top-quality ingredients with unique, homemade sauces and side dishes, have earned a reputation for “raising the bar” of Mexican food restaurants. The menu also features an impressive selection of fire-grilled fajitas, enchiladas, tacos, chile rellenos, quesadillas and tamales. Desserts include Abuelo’s award-winning traditional Mexican flan and Margarita pie with tequila cream sauce, among others.
