Went for a 7:30 pm meal on a Friday night. Beautiful courtyard area with sky affect painted vaulted ceiling and prominent statue. With tile and cement as your main surfaces, it was pretty noisy in the front, with kids playing and other loud kids at a close table. Upon their departure it quieted considerably. Really enjoyed my pasta dish with... More

ABUELO'S remains my favorite Mexican Restaurant in the Phoenix area. We eat here probably twice a month. The service is equal to the attitude of the service personnel. Last night we had a nice young lady named Brittany and she was nothing short of terrific/outstanding. This was with a party of 8 of us and just about everyone (yours truly... More

We have been to Abuelo's in Peoria 3 times in the past 2 weeks, and they're on our short list of places to go tonight. The food is just simply excellent. Their green salsa, made with ingredients that taste like mango or papaya, maybe pineapple...not sure, and sweet peppers, as well as some with a slight spiciness make this the... More

Great bar, great atmosphere, lots of quiet coves to eat in. Would be nice for groups, parties or quiet evenings with great food and a romantic atmosphere. Nice music in the background. It was definitley less busy since I visited there five years ago. Remarkably, it was just as clean and well cared for as back then so updates have... More

Excellent atmosphere and really good Mexican food. Service was fantastic. We had an amazing waitress... Melanie... that provided every aspect of great service. The margaritas are fantastic... an especially great deal at happy hour. Loved it.

The very friendly staff had us comfortably seated--not on top of the next table, but at tables spaced so you're not on top of each other. Start off your dinner with one of their fantastic margaritas--get the bigger one as they go down smoothly and are really good. An excellent selection of food and our entire party raved about the...

I've eaten here several times (the latest last week) and it is almost always excellent (the one time it wasn't I was given a pass for a free dinner - and it WAS excellent.) I would say this restaurant truly has excellent and authentic Mexican food. It is a large, attractive building resembling a Mexican Palace with a huge sunken... More

Abuelo's consistently has flavorful food, choices of salsas for chips, and the ambiance is welcoming for large groups, lunch for two or couples. Hot items are hot and always attractively displayed. One of my favorite places!

Great Mexican Food is not a contradiction in terms. If you're trying to compare this establishment to Del Taco or Taco Bell, then you belong eating at Del Taco or Taco Bell. This place gets a 5 out of 5 on Quality. Try Thursday Night for their Prime Rib Dinner with true Mexican side dishes. My favorite side is the... More
