Great Happy Hour menu

I along with group of friends visited Abuelos for happy hour. The guacamole and happy hour appetizer menu was great and drinks were good. Service was also very good. Get there around 4:00 and you should be able to get a nice seat at a table in the bar area. The Margarita Sangria combo drink is... read more

Fantastic margaritas! Nice atmosphere & good service. We have never had a bad meal there. It's always very good. The prices are reasonable, too. It's more upscale than your typical Mexican restaurant. There are Tex Mex dishes and plenty of seafood dishes.

I am usually not a fan of chain Mexican restaurants, but since we were staying close by at the Springhill Suites (5 minute drive) so we decided to give it try. Prices are fair and the portions are generous. We received very good service. The salsa could use a bit more heat. Overall, if I am in the area again... More

We went here with some clients during a business lunch at their recommendation. We were not disappointed. I would say our waitress was not the best (multiple mistakes, few spills) but that does not make me change my opinion of this restaurant. The chips and salsa options were very good (chips came with 3 different salsas to try). And everyone... More

The food and the place itself was amazing. We had no idea and just happened upon it. Was not very crowded at all, mid week, although we were eating later in the evening. The selections are incredible. Took about 15 minutes to just glance at the menu. Large wonderful portions and their chips and salsa are the best we have... More

Came into this establishment in order to redeem a gift card we received. This place has all the upscale bells and whistles aimed at reproducing the old hacienda style. Most of the walls are decorated with colorful murals. At first glance of the menu we noticed the over priced items. This after all is Mexican food. No new twist to... More

This is our favorite Mexican food restaurant. The food is ALWAYS good. There were 6 of us for dinner last night. We've never had a complaint except yesterday, 7/8/15, tge chips seemed to be different and a bit greasy. Everyone enjoyed the entree's and dessert. If you like Mexican food, you'll love this restaurant. The ambiance is wonderful.

My wife and I had dinner at Abuelo's and found it to be just great. Had the bacon wrapped pork tenderloins with two shredded pork enchiladas with a side of charro beans. So much food had to take half home for another meal. To top it off we had a coupon for two dinners for the price of one. Can't... More
