Another great restaurant in Lakeside Village. Great margaritas and Mexican/American food. A bit noisy when busy on the weekends, but always good.

This is my first choice for Mexican food! From start to finish (flan anyone?) the best around. Service is excellent & the sangria swirl to die for!

My girlfriend and I met for lunch at 11:30 so we could get a seat early. We were seated and chatted quite a bit so we ate both bins of chips before ordering. Our server did not seem bothered at all. She kept coming by and checking on us and offered more chips! We both ordered special items, she was... More

Top notch food and attentive service. Happy hour drinks are very good and the margueritas are the best you will find anywhere. Three different salsa are tasty and the chips are crisp and full of flavor. Pricing is reasonable and the balloon guy is good with the little ones.

This was our first visit. Great atmosphere. Chips are super thin. Comes with three different salsas. Enchiladas come with at least 5 different sauce choices. I had the sour cream. Will definitely go again.

My husband and I went there for a late night small meal and drink. Our waitress was very friendly. We explained we would be ordering lightly, and she was good with that. Great salsas and house margarita; the nachos were just OK. If we were hungrier we certainly would have tried what looked to be a great variety.

We went to Abuelo's in Lakeland, Florida, Friday night. The place was packed with a long waiting line. Obviously, my idea of Tex-Mex food is slightly different because I would not eat there again. It is a nicely decorated average chain restaurant. The meal started with excellent thin chips and three kinds of salsa which tasted very good but were... More
