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

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!
