Food was great, and service was friendly and fast! Kids received 2 servings of nachos free! We loved the food, and will be back!

We had to wait over an hour for a table and sit out a thunderstorm but it was worth the wait. The happy hour beers helped us pass the time waiting for a table. The food was plentiful and very tasty. There were the usual chips and salsa with three varieties of heat. All were good. The time between order... More

We were looking for some good Mexican food and we found it! We made reservations for 8 people for 6:30 pm on a Thursday night in August and unlike some other reviewers - we were seated right when we got there (ahead of many other families waiting). Everyone really enjoyed their food - the only complaint I had was the... More

We arrived at the restaurant around 7 & were told we had a 30-40 min. wait. After over an hour, we checked in again & they realized they had written down the wrong pager number & then said "sorry" & laughed. After being seated, it then took an excessive amount of time to receive our drinks & then even longer... More

Finally was able to convince the wifey to try Mexican cuisine. She liked it so much, we ate at Abuelo's two consecutive nights. They first serve chips and salsa, providing three different types of salsa, all of which were excellent. Then the entree portion was enough to satisfy four people (and it was just me and her). Food was great... More

We had a large group of about 22 people on an evening in July of 2014. We made a reservation ahead of time for around 5:00. They were very accommodating, and we were seated immediately at one large table. The server was efficient and energetic. We received our drinks and meals in a timely manner. The food was excellent, and... More

This place is fantastic! The happy hour is one of the best in the central Myrtle Beach area. $4 apps and $3 margaritas. Fantastico! The food has also been consistently delicious and the staff actually appreciate your business. So happy to see a manager walking around to every table asking how their service and meals were. It really shows that... More

This has been one our stops for the last few years. The food is tasty and the staff has always been friendly and attentive. Today we had a fajita salad and chimichanga. We both enjoyed the food and fast service. Their chips and 3 salsas are super delicious!
