Well, I ordered the shrimp fajitas as they were filled with jalapeno and cheddar cheese, then wrapped in bacon. Sounds like paradise to me. Plus, fajitas have the added benefit of being SIZZLING HOT when they arrive table-side. These...not so much. I mentioned it right away ("Shouldn't this plate be sizzling, hahaha?") and the server mentioned that the kitchen was... More

Kelley, I am so sorry to hear about that -- I am very surprised that my waiter did not report back to me about the issue, as I would have gladly looked into fixing the problem for you immediately. This missed opportunity to make things right is really unfortunate, and I hope you will come back again so that we... More

We went to Abuelo's on a busy Friday evening around 7:30 or so. As we waited (understandably) I noticed quite a few tables that were cleared, bussed, and ready for new customers. One of the hostesses told us the kitchen was backed up so they were holding off seating people... not very reassuring. At any rate, we stuck it out... More

Brian, I would like to apologize for the long wait time -- our kitchen rarely gets overwhelmed like that, but on occasion we will be short-staffed, which can lead to difficulties. However, we still strive to provide you with the best food possible. Please do come back again anytime -- we would love another shot at impressing you. Best, David More

Not so far from Cincinnati Marriott NorthEast, this is a nice place. The atmosphere really remind you to Mexico. Everything is very clear and waiters are very nice and smiling. Something seems strange to us, is that they close at 9pm, except on Saturday if I am not wrong, so I recommend to verify. The place is very large. We... More

Wife and I went for dinner, we have not been in several years. We were seated right away, but the server took forever to come to the table. So many items to select from. We decided to share the Jalapeno cheese fritters, freshly made hand-breaded fritters, oozing with melted cheese and jalapeño. Served with ranch dressing. They were very good,... More

Please rest assured that I will definitely look into the matter for you -- you can expect much more from us the next time you stop by. Best, David More

Have visited twice recently, after finally trying Abuelo's. I really love their salsas, and our food is always fresh and interesting. Servers have all been helpful, friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. It's a pretty place, that feels a little fancier than usual without super high prices. Will definitely be back and would recommend.

Everytime I go, I think it will be better (maybe I was craving Mexican food), but it always disappoints me, too cheesy, not spicy enough, not authentic, plates are not clean, poor service (they messed up our order).

I really like this restaurant. The service is excelent, our waiter even had diferent color pens to sign the check(it was nice). The food looked and tasted very good. My wife and me had the fajitas for two and the portions were big. I had an agave margarita and was not dissapointed.

We had a group of 4 adults. We tried to make reservations but Abuelos does not take reservations, but they do take call ahead seating.
