We're regulars, and we haven't found a better spot for american-style "mexican" or "southwest" meals. All the meal combos are good; tastes and looks freshly prepared, it comes to you in a very hot plate and stays warm throughout the meal. The last time we went I had the chile rellenos, really good! The meat is juicy, the cheeses are... More

We love the food here. My in-laws have us take them here everytime we come into Arizona. Never a disappointing meal!

We were looking for a great Mexican restaurant in the Chandler area and Abeulo's did not disappoint! The restaurant interior is bright and colorful. The menu has almost too many choices and it was tough to make a selection from the many choices that included Tex Mex and well as traditional Mexican dishes. The chips came with three different flavors... More

This is not your average chain Mexican place. The food is good and there is more variety than you would get at a Garcias or Manuels. We go with the family quite often, and everyone enjoys it! (I also enjoy the margaritas!)

This is our favorite place to go out and eat Mexican food. When we first moved to South Chandler we tried many Mexican places but nothing compared to Abuelos. The Senior menu is the same as the lunch menu and is available in the evening. There is either no waiting or a short one before being seated. Service is prompt... More

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.
