Went in on a Saturday for a late lunch with family and the place was packed. We would have had to wait 30 minutes so we sat in the bar. All the food was really good and service was really quick. Their chips are light...MoreWe appreciate the great review. Thanks for taking the time to share your experience with us! See you soon! Thanks, Abuelo’s Guest Satisfaction Team

Wall Street Bar & Grill

Reviewed By terry_79707 - Midland, Texas

It was a Tuesday night 8:15 p.m. There was a wait list. I waited 15 minutes for member of staff to add our name to the list. Eye contact was made by several employees, but no one spoke or offered to help. There were at least 4 couples who came in after we did. After 15 minutes of waiting and multiple looks from staff we left. I have eaten there many times before and the food is usually good, service is consistently iffy. Not sure we will be going back.

Clear Springs Cafe

This location was the first built from the ground up. It's fashioned after our original location in New Braunfels, with its massive wood support beams, high ceilings and rustic atmosphere, it is like stepping back in time to the 1800's.

I absolutely love this restaurant and although I do not live in the area, I literally drive to Odessa to go eat, it is the best seafood food around. The food is fresh, service is great, they have a great variety of seafood entrees. The Gumbo is good, fried catfish is awesome, EVERYTHING is good, made the drive, you won't be disappointed!

Cancun Grill

Cancun Bar & Grill Restaurant, Midland, Texas; website 223 West Wall St.

Reviewed By Guy H - Mount Vernon, Ohio, United States

This is an upscale Mexican restaurant that has upscale prices. The margaritas are delicious and worth the price. Get it with salt because it has special seasoning. The food is good, but you can get Mexican food for a lot less elsewhere. I had the seafood enchiladas which were ok and maybe just a bad choice. The service is excellent and the decor is very nice.

Ray's Italian Bistro

Reviewed By wfharlow

We were a party of 6 with reservations at Ray's tonight to celebrate my son's birthday. Someone else called to cancel their reservation, and Rays cancelled ours instead. While we were discussing this, another large party walked in. The hostess quit helping us and immediately seated them at a table which would have held us. They later offered to seat us at different tables, which is not satisfactory for a birthday dinner. Meanwhile, the hostess was aggressively rude. I am beyond angry at they way their atrocious service ruined a child's birthday dinner. They even refused to let me talk to a manager.

Luigi's Italian Restaurant

Reviewed By Chris M - Dallas, Texas

Recently visited Midland and several people recommended that I dine here. Excellent Veal Scaloppini. My Date had the Antipasto salad and half a Pizza Margherita.
The pizza had a nice light thin crust and was very good.

It reminded me of some of the Italian restaurants I used to go to in St. Louis.

The Garlic Press

Reviewed By BillM551 - Midland, Texas

My wife and I enjoyed an excellent anniversary dinner at Garlic Press. Because we reserved a table, we did not wait to be seated. The table was perfect for us as it was located by a corner window. Fresh baked, warm bread with baked garlic provided the perfect entree to dinner. We started with escargot. The preparation was different that the usual butter sauce; not sure that I would order escargot again. The Caesar salad was crisp and perfectly dressed. Caprese salad was delicious and beautifully plated. My wife ordered veal. Steamed vegetables were cooked to maintain their color and texture. Deep fried potato cakes seem to be a standard accompaniment; wish they were grilled and not deep fried. My jalapeno shrimp in white wine sauce were spicey but not too hot, succulent and not overcooked. Penne pasta provided the perfect backdrop to enjoy the sauce. The dessert offered many tempting pleasures. We shared the cheese cake which was not your usual cheesecake. I cannot describe the flavor, but it was more than the usual, standard vanilla and adorned with two delicate chocolate leaves. The restaurant was very busy so we found service a bit slow, but we were enjoying our anniversary dinner so it was not a problem. Garlic Press remains our favorite restaurant for special occasions; actually, for any occasion. Wish they offered full bar service. We shall return.

I’ve been to several burger establishments. However, this burger was extremely fresh ground meat very juicy and all the sad’s such as the sweet potato fries and skinny fries were awesome. This might be the best burger I’ve ever had

KD's Bar-B-Q

Reviewed By John P

The BBQ I bought here was sold by the pound.(not sure about any other ways to buy it) I got two big slices of brisket, one pork rib, and a link of spicy sausage. The customer service was great. Being my first time they guided me through the line order type process. The cooked jalapeno was extra but the beans, pickles, onions, and bread were free.I paid just over $27 with NO drink

Reviewed By Ronna P - Midland, Texas, United States

I ❤️Rosa’s! I just mentioned to my brother in law that my children coming in from out of town for Christmas would be stopping at Rosa’s to eat dinner so we don’t need to worry about their meal. He was shocked and asked why. I told him that they love it and so do I. Well apparently a WHOLE LOT OF PEOPLE like it! Go Rosa’s Go!❤️
