I will say that I had a low opinion of Abuelo's because of other locations but we started going to this location and service has always been really good. This is pretty much our go to Mexican place these days as others are much cheaper on the quality of ingredients and unfortunately high quality authentic Mexican food is difficult to... More

The first thing that struck me about the restaurant was the well thought out building design. It gives a good first impression on the outside and the inside is very nice too. The inside is designed to mimic a traditional inner courtyard of a Mexican building. To complete the look, the ceiling it painted like the sky above the "courtyard".... More

Abuelo's is an upscale Mexican restaurant. I thoroughly enjoyed it, from the THREE different salsa's that I was served to the meal itself. The luncheon menue is less expensive, and serves lighter meals, but all I can eat. I will go again as soon as I return to the area.

We had dinner yesterday at the Restaurant for the first time. The food was very good especially the delicious chicken dishes. The plates were very hot as was the food and served in a timely manner . The ambiance was very appealing and food reasonably priced. Watch out for good coupons.

However the people not inthe meeting just loitered around and didnt offer to get us started until I asked. Really poor. We have been there many times and usually the service is excellent. The...

We both love Mexican food, and this was a new chain for us but we decided to give it a try. We love it and will definitely be back! The service is great, the drinks and food portions generous, and you don't leave feeling hungry.

Our first visit to Abuelos in Carmel, IN. Good food, and good service. The chips were light and tasty with a variety of salsas. I had the lunchtime fajitas and was able to have both corn and flour tortillas. Tasty and enjoyable. My partner had enchiladas and the best thing was the avocado enchilada. I tried his and have to...

Seriously, the chili con queso tasted like it came from a can. Food had no flavor. When we tried voice our concerns, they seemed to fall on deaf ears. Service was no better than the food!
