I always try to visit when I am in Chandler. I enjoy the open "garden" dining area and the Mexican food is authentic and excellent tasting

I am usually not a big fan of Mexican food and I don't like spicy food so I always have to hunt something that isn't spicy. Well, I asked our server, who was very helpful & friendly, if the tamales were spicy. He informed me that no, they were not, so I ordered one tamale and rice. Well, when I... More

Aubuelo's is my favorite place for Mexican food. The taco fajitas are really good. We have eaten there several times and never been disappointed. The chips and three different salsas that are served to every table are wonderful. The service has always been excellent . It is a very busy place. The outdoor seating is very nice. Try it!

My husband and I traveled to Phoenix to kick off 2015 with a destination we'd never been to before. While exploring one day we decided we'd seek out some Mexican cuisine. Our friends who live in PHX suggested Abuelo's as we were nearby anyway and we had a lovely time. The server was friendly, prompt and attentive. My fish tacos... More

We had a group of six family members who met at Abuelo's by Chandler Mall for lunch. We all love Mexican food. Abuelo's menu had a good variety of food and the menu was different than a typical Mexican restaurant. A section on the menu was even reserved for Tex-Mex .. nummy. We started with the Guacamole dip. That was... More

Love their chips and queso and wish they had an Abuelo's near me in New York! Usually get two beef enchiladas with a fried egg on top, though the egg this time was runny even though it was ordered over medium (what cook doesn't know how to prepare eggs?). I'll still return because this is my go-to, sort of Mexican/Tex-Mex... More

Always try to go when I'm in town. It's been a while and was glad we made the effort to go again. Food was awesome, server was awesome. All around good experience. Order the cheese dip sampler.
