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

Abuelos is one of our favorite Mexican chain restaurants. I especially like the Durango Burrito and generally get that menu item. When ordered with the pappas (potatoes) it is hard to beat.

We patronized this restaurant last night. There were 6 of us who were celebrating. On Thursday night they have a limited amount of Prime Rib, so if that is on your mind, GO EARLY . 3 of us ordered the Prime Rib which was ordered and cooked three different ways. One well done, one medium, and one medium rare. Each... More

This is a very busy place, so sit in the bar area- the service is great. We enjoy the chips, salsa, and quest dip the best. The portions are huge, so order something to share. For dessert, the tres leches is awesome!

We often go to Abuelos after church on Sundays. There's always a big crowd so if we can't get a seat right away we sit in the lounge area across from the bar. The service is awesome, the chips light and freshly warmed, to die for! My husband always gets the lunch menu beef fajita. He has never complained and... More

To be sure, there are other Mexican restaurants that have good food, but Abuelo's has the best all around food, selection and atmosphere. It's always relatively quiet and allows us to talk to each other without yelling. The wait staff is courteous and efficient. The dishes always arrive hot and remain warm throughout the meal, something very important to me.

I visited this restaurant last month with 3 friends and we had a very enjoyable time. Their free chips and salsa were exceptionally good, the chips warm with 3 very different salsas, and he kept refills coming. Our waiter was very friendly and answered our many questions without making us feel stupid. Each of us had different dishes, and everything... More
