Amazing food and service!

I met my nephew, his wife and my cousins and their husbands here for lunch on a Sunday. I made reservations since we've been here before a couple times and knew they are busy on Sundays. The reservation was quick and easy and we were greeted with pleasure and a certain amount of motivation. Our... read more

We have visited Abuelo's several years for our anniversary, and did again this year. (we have visited at other times, as well). Wonderful food! Our waitress was very good and kept our glasses filled. Very enjoyable, and very good!

I love abuelos! It is a bit more expensive than your average mexican restaurant, but the ingredients are fresher and the food has soul. You won't be disappointed! The queso and avacado cream are delicious. The service is pretty good, depending on who your server is.

Been to several different Abuelos over the years, and the food and service is always very good. Reasonably priced, and dining areas are spacious, so you're not sitting right on top of your neighbors. Had lunch there yesterday (April) and it was as good as ever.

we sat at a tall table in the bar for 4 people. it was very crowded and we didn't have a lot of room for the chips and salsa .. so once our food came out it was very uncomfortable. loved the food though, minus the queso. it was more like nacho cheese instead of traditional queso. will be going...

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.
