Best chips and salsa! Chips are warm, thin and crispy. Made from scratch entrees and the ones I have tried a excellent. Decor is beautiful and prices are reasonable.

Abuelo's is good food! i like their airy chips and the salsa has good flavor! The enchiladas are probably the most popular and they do have a different variety (spinach, avocado, beef, chicken). My favorite dish is the Fideo con Camaron. man thats good stuff... the one with chicken is great too. A cream based slightly spiced sauce with veggies... More

Go to Abuelo's when your looking for high quality tasting Mexican food. The food is consistently good. Even the chips and salsa are excellent. Must try the con queso dip as an appetizer. We like seating at the tables in the bar better than the restaurant because it get's very loud when it is busy because of the high ceilings... More

Love Mexican food! This was largely gringo style (which I suppose is okay) and a gathering spot for sure, place and parking lot was packed at 7 pm on a weekday night! We were promptly seated by friendly hostess staff member. Got salsa and chips in a hurry, awesome salsa selections. Server was good at first, but he got steadily... More

Abuelo's is the place you go to when you're looking to have something other than the same old Mexican dishes. The flavors are always great and the menu is varied. Service has always been great.

My favorite foods at this restaurant are the ahi tuna appetizer, the tortilla soup, and the Mexican salad topped with con queso. My wife almost always gets the Mexican Stack, something like an elegant flat taco with cheese sauce. The tortilla soup is mostly a broth soup, under-stated seasonings, but tasty and light. Tortilla chips are served with an array... More

I went to Abuelo's twice on a recent vacation to Phoenix. The service was very quick and I love the three salsa choices. If you haven't tried the green/ pineapple salsa - DO!! The fajita steak tacos are my favorite. The Sangria Swirl drink is the best frozen concoction I've ever had. Wish Abuelo's were in the midwest!
