This restaurant got top ratings and I just happen to be in the area, so I thought I'd see for myself. I was seated quickly and the staff were very friendly. Large dining area and lots of serving staff going to and fro. My server was fast and efficient. Friendly and recommended several of the local dishes. My dish came... More

Have eaten at this restaurants many times but it has been some months since the last visit. It was a go to place with friends and the entrees were always excellent. My favorite was the Tilapia.. Also great chips and salsa. Not so much anymore. Chips were greasy and the salsa was served in tiny cups and not as good.My... More

I along with group of friends visited Abuelos for happy hour. The guacamole and happy hour appetizer menu was great and drinks were good. Service was also very good. Get there around 4:00 and you should be able to get a nice seat at a table in the bar area. The Margarita Sangria combo drink is amazing.

Fantastic margaritas! Nice atmosphere & good service. We have never had a bad meal there. It's always very good. The prices are reasonable, too. It's more upscale than your typical Mexican restaurant. There are Tex Mex dishes and plenty of seafood dishes.

I am usually not a fan of chain Mexican restaurants, but since we were staying close by at the Springhill Suites (5 minute drive) so we decided to give it try. Prices are fair and the portions are generous. We received very good service. The salsa could use a bit more heat. Overall, if I am in the area again... More

We went here with some clients during a business lunch at their recommendation. We were not disappointed. I would say our waitress was not the best (multiple mistakes, few spills) but that does not make me change my opinion of this restaurant. The chips and salsa options were very good (chips came with 3 different salsas to try). And everyone... More
