Try the Tilapia Veracruz; the awesome taste just sums up everything that is right for this restaurant! A great place to be if you want to relax and eat good Mexican food with friends or family. Has a very soothing ambiance. The staff is well mannered with good knowledge about the dishes. One of the best meals I have ever... More

I went to Abuelo's with my mom. she had eaten there before with a friend and enjoyed it. I love Mexican food, so i was happy to go. We went during the mid-afternoon, before the dinner rush, so the restaurant was not crowded. We were seated quickly and our waiter was polite and attentive. The menu was full of the... More

Food is good, service good but way too noisy for good conversation It's a pretty restaurant, but we just couldn't hear each other when we talked. It's not pleasant to have to raise your voice to be heard.

While in Arizona, visiting family, a fairly large group of us went to Abuelo's. We were warmly greeted and seated quickly. The service was good throughout the evening. The food here is a creative take on Mexican -- a nice change from the ordinary. While the case could be made for calling it Americanized, I wouldn't lump in in with... More

The restaurant atmosphere and decoration makes you feel like you are at a Disney Pavilion. Chips with the 3 different salsas are superb. Loved the green sauce which is made with pineapple. Have tried chimichangas and burritos, both exceptional plates. For dessert, you have to try the "Chocolate Flan". OUT OF THIS WORLD!!!!

My favorite restaurant in Chandler, excellent atmosphere, especially in the back near the the walls with the Latino Folk Paintings. I highly recommend the enchiladas, especially the spinach with creme. The papas as a side is almost as good as the rest of the meal. Their queso sampler is very good. Sopapillas are also very very good. Their manager Chris... More

I grew up in New Mexico and my grandmother used to make us stacked enchiladas. Abuelo's has a dish they call "Mi Abuelo's Manjar" which means "My Grandfather's Favorite". Well, it is also my favorite! Topped with an egg and red sauce it is fantastic! Coupled with "Raja con Queso" a roasted green chile topped with melted cheese and pico... More

I was surprised to get a coupon for Abuelos in the mail the other day so we went for dinner. Abuelo's has really good food. Their prices have gone up a bit but are still very resonable. You get a ton of food and the margaritas are really yummy. If more than two people are drinking get the pitcher as... More
