Service was terrible. Ordered a soup, never got it. Ordered extra tortillas and never got them. One dish came with the wrong side. Drinks took way too long to arrive, refills you can forget it. They were very busy but how long does it take to pour a beer? Food was just ok and if you know Mexican food you... More

After being seated, we waited 10 minutes for a waiter to acknowledge us. I had to flag the hostess down to ask her who our waiter was. Received Chips and salsa.. Didn't care for it at all. Three different salsas .. One being hot. No drinks yet.. Ordered the beef chimichanga. It wasn't that good.. But the refried beans were... More

My family all enjoyed the chips and salsa. The entrees were huge, a good spot for Mexican while at the beach.

We almost didn't eat here when we were told there was a 30 minute wait but we are so glad we stayed--plus it ended up only being about a five minute wait. The salsa/sauces were delicious and we loved the variety. The "traditional" salsa was smooth and not as acidic as most, the tomatillo salsa was light and fresh tasting... More

I took a gamble and tried a new restaurant and a new dish. I would highly recommend both. My seafood enchilada couldn't have been any better. I wish I could remember the waiter's name. He was top notch. Attentive but not hovering; very nice, knowledgeable guy with a pleasant smile. The atmosphere and comfort of the restaurant added to the... More

Really had a great experience here. It started off with them letting me call ahead 6 hours early - which in the craziness of Myrtle Beach, with a party of 13, (including 3 kids and an infant) was great! Prices are extremely reasonable - for example one of our apps was $3.50! A pitcher of Margaritas for $20 - which... More

The Bride had a big platter with five enchiladas including spinach, cheese, chicken with a chili relano, chichen taco, chili lime rice and refrained beans. I had a beef taco alongside four enchiladas,... More

I have visited Abuelos in other locations, and the food quality matched what I had before, which was good. This was the first visit to the Myrtle Beach location. The server was very friendly, but after he took our order, never checked on us again until we were almost finished with our meal, and had empty beverage glasses for a... More

There was nothing to dislike about this place. Abuelo's is located on highway 17, away from the strip and near a mall. The place was packed, but our wait was less than 20 minutes. The service was awesome, and the food was good and hot. Our waitress was very attentive and recommended dishes since this was our first visit. The... More

Server was very good! Best service we have had in a long time! Food is always good here except the fajitas portion is small for the price meat is dry and one strip of green pepper one strip of red pepper onions were burnt to the platter. This is second time I've tried fajItas and same experience both times. Everything... More
