We went here for lunch last week with some friends and since we have additional people visiting tonite we will go back and try the dinner. I had the enchiladas with heuvos rancheros last time. Very reasonable and great service makes it warrant a return trip tonite. Yay.

We have been going to Abuelo's for 11 years but our last few of visits were disappointing and last night's dinner there was also a disappointment. The menu prices have gone up substantially recently and while I understand that this does occur over time to keep up with costs, I don't understand why the portion sizes have become smaller when...

The food is always hot and fresh tasting. I love the papas/potatoes - whipped with larger bites of potatoes and green chilies. Endless combinations of enchiladas, and reasonable prices. A must try is the chicken medallions - stuffed with chorizo. I would give Abuelo's an overall 3.5. Service seems to be hit or miss sometimes. Sangria is nice and refreshing.... More

The papas are definitely a real star on the menu -- I'm so happy to hear you love them as much as we do. I wish we could impress you more with stellar service, but your patience and loyalty really mean a lot. Hope to have you back again sometime! Best wishes, George Jowell More

Okay, this is about as far from the mom and pop Mexican restaurant as you can get. It looks like the Taj Mahal of Mexican dining. But after you're seated, there are some interesting options. The intro was good as the chips were thin and crisp and there were three kinds of salsa to choose from. The lunch menu didn't... More

Taj Mahal of Mexican dining? We'll take it! I'm happy to hear you and your friends all enjoyed the enchiladas -- and that's a really neat way of ordering that you came up with!

Phoenix is famous for excellent Mexican food. Almost every restaurant that says it offers Mexican is delicious. My friends decided to go on the search for the best Chili Relleno....This is our first stop for group review. Of the three of us that had it here, two said it was very very good.

It's an honor to be among the best! I'm glad our Chili Relleno stands up to the others around here -- like you said, this is definitely a great area for Mexican food. Hopefully you can join us again for another happy hour and some enchiladas. All the best, George Jowell More

We have really enjoyed this restaurant in the past and were not disappointed this time. The food was excellent and the green chili sauce on my dual Relleno plate & side enchilada was very good. Make my wife jealous because she ordered the red sauce.
