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!

Then we all decided to order off the appetizer menu to take advantage of the happy hour prices... More

We stopped here for lunch. The restaurant is very clean and inviting. All of us ordered the steak fajita taco's. We found very little meat in each Taco, and it was cut into small pieces and too overcooked. To this day I have never found any restaurant that could prepare fajita meat like Texas based Uncle Julio's or Pappasito's. Perhaps's... More

Excellent service and good food, even if it is a chain... but not crazy about the salsas. Nice atmosphere!

I was a little hesitant because of the 'chain restaurant' comments. After our meal I understand the comment but it was a delightful meal with excellent service and a lovely patio outside that made the meal memorable. The food was fresh hot and well prepared. I didn't realize smokers were still allowed to smoke in public spaces so that was... More
