Authentic Mexican Food

The menu selections are plentiful and varied. The food and service very good. We even got a description of the wonderful murals.

We love to sit and eat at the bar. Just usually my husband and me. The bar staff is very attentive without hovering, and it's just a great atmosphere to catch a game or just catch up with each other.

Abuelo's is the one restaurant that my lady will say yes to every time I ask her if she wishes to go there. The menu is varied and thus far everything I and she has ordered has been good. When ever there has been a mistake in an order or any type of problem it is taken care of quickly... More

Went here the other night after a wedding rehearsal. 25 peeps in our party; 2 long tables. Restaurant interior is high class. Solid wooden furniture that was clean and apparently very expensive. Ceiling had unusual sky view that has to be seen to be appreciated. (I didn't take a pic because you just have to see it to enjoy it.)... More

Nice quality Mexican food in a clean and comfortable atmosphere. Service seemed a little slow for the amount of people there, but that could just be an isolated incident. Good, but not remarkably good.

When you want excellent Prime Rib cooked the way you like it Abuelo's does a great job. Their service is always great and they make sure that you are satisfied with everything. We always eat in the bar because we prefer adults only. Ryan servers you well. They also have great sea food selections. Would recommend for fine dinning.

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.
