GOOD MEXICAN FOOD

This is a very nice Mexican restaurant. If you plan to go, try Wednesday or Sunday & get the green chili stew as an appetizer. It is delicious. Also, for a spectacular dinner, try the Los Mejores de la Casa, It is the best meal on the menu!

Feels like a classy get away with great food. They even serve a fantastic Rib-Eye for those wanting all American. You need to try them out in Peoria, AZ

Only thing that is nice and a little different is the atmosphere. Other than that is ok. Littler over priced.

The food is very reasonably priced. You have a choice between full portion or half portion. The atmosphere is nice.

My daughter and I decided to try Abuelos and I'm glad we did! The restaurant was busy but we were seated in about 10 minutes. Our server was prompt and courteous. We had the seven layer dip fir an appetizer. The chips were fresh and crisp and the dip was tasty. For my meal I ordered a cheese enchilada and... More

A lovely bit of Mexican decor in AZ. Our first first - went with 4 other friends. We had quite an experience. Had drinks around and ordered dinners...then waited over 90 minutes for dinner. Our server, Jose, assured us it was coming - yet it never came. Then the manager, Mitch or Rich not sure, came and apologized for delay,... More

I can't thank you enough for your patience, Kathy. Taking care of the meal was certainly the least we could do, and I'm so grateful for your understanding. It's great that you and your friends did ultimately get to enjoy your meals as well despite our mistake. Looking forward to your next visit -- promise we won't lose the ticket.... More

We have been to Abuelo's about a half dozen times so far with family and out of state friends. This particular restaurant has very nice decor appointments and welcoming atmosphere, along with what I have found to be consistently fine Mexican food and excellent margaritas, as well. I have made a point to order a different entree at each visit... More

Took the extended family out to dinner here, good place for all ages including small children. The food was good, I appreciate the chips and selection of salsas brought to our table immediately. The service was mediocre. The killer was the cleanness which was lacking. The glass ware & silver ware were disgusting at all our place settings and the... More

This is concerning to read because the whole team takes cleanliness very seriously.

Had a house margarita and enchiladas - both very good. Wide variety of dishes to choose from. I can say for sure the avocado enchilada is excellent!
