My group of coworkers, 6 in all, go out to enjoy a casual lunch restaurant meal once per quarter. Wasn't always easy to please all tastes, then 2 years ago we tried Abuelos and have been going there every time since. We joke about having "our" table ( since there is just a few tables for 6 at the back... More

Yummy food, decent service. I highly recommend the steak chimichanga fajita with papas. It is delicious and very filling.

This is one of our favorite Mexican restaurants. One of my favorites is the cheese enchiladas with onion. I recommend trying the cilantro lime rice for a change of pace - very good. The service is always great, but is time we had a young woman named Megan. She was by far one of the best - very personable and... More

Is great for families. Less suited for dates unless you are quite young. Restaurant has a little wait on the weekends as it is in an outdoor mall area but you can go next door and check out the TESLA showroom.

I visited this location with a friend and ordered a margarita. A gnat flew into my drink so I mentioned it to the waitress. She offered to make me another one. She then took the drink and returned with the exact same drink with the gnat removed. Gross. I politely asked her to remove the drink from my tab. I... More

We've been eating at Abuelos restaurants for over 15 years, and have always had good food and usually good service. Besides the typical Mexican food, they also have a couple of unique items--crispy chicken breast stuffed with choriso and their best kept secret--spinach caserol. If you like choriso and/or spinach, you will love these. The caserol has spinach, corn and... More

My husband & I loved our dinner at Abuelo's at Eatson Town Center. The food was amazing and you get a lot for your money. We enjoyed the creamy guacamole and salas with our chips. We both enjoyed drinks during the happy hour. Their margaritas were so yummy. We def will be back to try somemore drinks and yummy foods.... More

You know how they say all Mexican is the same. Abuelos is a bit different. The wife likes it a lot and believes the quality is much better than the other places. As for me, I don't see much of a difference. The food is always very good, The service is normally good, but you can catch them on a... More

Everything from the guacamole to the tortilla soup to the tacos were salty. The swirl frozen drink was good.

An excellent choice if you're looking for Mexican. The staff are friendly and usually close by if you need anything without being intrusive. The price is slightly above average for Mexican but not so much as to feel it's not worth it. I would definitely recommend the bacon wrapped shrimp. Don't miss this place, you'll enjoy your time here.
