If in the area this fits the bill.

I'm not from the SW so I'd never seen this chain before. Spicy shrimp tacos and a Margherita - awesome. Doesn't feel too corporate and has a decent patio

We just left the restaurant after enjoying a great lunch. I had the shrimp tacos and chose the house signature potatoes as my side. My husband enjoyed his seared Ahi tuna and our friend loved his enchiladas. The flan to close the meal was also amazing, Definitely recommend.

We don't take advantage of this fresh twist on TexMex in Chandler often enough. Their service is always wonderful. And they are always ready with suggestions. Appetizers are fabulous and reasonable. The main courses...there are many choices. You won't be disappointed

Beautifully decorated, a Mexican inspired restaurant for people who don't want to go with fast food or "local" fare. The food was good and prepared well. The jalapeno mashed potatoes are a nice side dish for folks who are not fond of rice. I had an excellent chili relleno, and the others with me all seemed pleased with their food.... More

We have had several group parties here and were never disappointed with the service or food. If they get something wrong with the order they fix it.

Our table of eight was served right away, waiter super nice. Service was fast. Everyone liked their meals. Sangria/Margarita swirl slush in a jug was great!

Abuelos is your typical higher end Mexican food chain restaurant. Food is good - but nothing like homemade by an Abuela!!!! Still good. We visit frequently!

This is not traditional Mexican food so do not expect that. It is a very good Tex Mex restaurant and they're always consistent and service has been great.

We always enjoy the food at Abuelo's. Excellent service, nice atmosphere and fun time! The chili relleno is great as well as the enchiladas. We'll always go back.
