Real Mexican food is a feast for the senses. From colorful peppers to the sounds of sizzling fajitas all the way to that incredible flavor. Each mouthful is just as much a result of the freshest ingredients as it is a result of the chef's expertise. Abuelo's offers diners the opportunity to experience real Mexican food, combining authentic, made from scratch classic dishes with the rich, subtle flavors of coastal and interior Mexican cuisine. Our executive Chef Luis Sanchez has spent decades perfecting our menu, and we boast a wide selection of wood-grilled fajitas, enchiladas, tacos, chile rellenos or Abuelo's unique House Specialties (depending on your location). To compliment your meal, our expert bartenders are masters at crafting signature favorites, including a wide variety of margaritas and swirls. Our new extended Happy Hour includes Sunday 11 am - 6 pm and Saturday 11 am - 6 pm. We continue to include great offerings M-F 3pm - 7 pm though! Catering is also an option, our staff are adept at delivering a professional, hassle-free and delicious meal. Whatever the occasion, we'll stop at nothing to make your time at Abuelo's a memorable dining experience.

Really good food. Second time to this restaurant. First time was at lunch and I was very pleased. This trip I went for dinner. Again, I thought the food was great. However, be prepared to pay $1.99 if you touch the electronic trivia game on the table. Also, look for the small print -I ordered... read more

I had dinner out on the patio. It was very pleasant (even though the view is of the side of a parking garage). The service is very good. The wait staff is very nice. I ordered the sea bass. Very Favorful. I'll definitely visit the next time I'm in the area

Have eaten in Abuelo's many times when visiting Easton. Great Mexican food, good service, and a nice shaded patio to eat outside.

I love their Sangria Swirls. Husband loves the hand-shaken margaritas. Never had a bad meal. Love the thin chips and dip sampler. Can't beat their happy hour specials. They even have it on Saturdays!

The food is always great here and this visit was NO different! We had to wait a bit for a table but it is worth the wait! The Enchiladas were yummy! They have a digital app sitting on our table which costs $2. It looked fun but we weren't sure if we would like it so we just visited with... More

We eat at Abuelo's for lunch about once, maybe twice, a month. We've never had a bad meal. On a couple of occasions service has been lacking, particularly during a later lunch hour (after 1:30). That being said, we have found a pattern at various restaurants that later lunch diners get poorer service. I think the servers are ready to... More

Great food, great service. Typically try to visit Abuelo's whenever we come in from out of town. Our server was very accommodating to us in regard to our 9 month old. She brought us two handfuls of straws, colored and regular, we we asked for a couple of extra to amuse her. Won our hearts right then! 😀

We absolutely love this restaurant. The food is great and the service is always impeccable. We have never had to wait for a table and usually get a nice booth. I particularly like the three salsas that are served with warm tortilla chips. I also like the soup and salad as it is tasty without being overly filling. My husband... More
