Description: 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. Whatever the occasion, we'll stop at nothing to make your time at Abuelo's a memorable dining experience.

Our Margaritas were excellent, our food was delicious and our waitress was so pleasant and attentive. From the chips and salsa through the dessert....everything was perfect! We are so pleased to live close by this gem of a restaurant.

My family of four adults went to this restaurant just after Christmas. We were concerned because the restaurant was extremely busy due to all the shoppers. However, we never felt as if the service or food was compromised and we received excellent service and excellent food. Everyone enjoyed their meals and loved the atmosphere. I was extremely impressed that the... More

I never expected to get a quality, authentic Mexican meal at a mall restaurant in Myrtle Beach, but I did. My teenage daughter researched the restaurant prior to our arrival in town and, as usual, she picked a winner. The food was great, as was the service. The restaurant was crowded, but not packed, which was a welcome surprise considering... More

If you want good Mexican door go else where. If you want great Mexican food eat here. The food was excellent and the service was also. Portions are very large and not only looks good but is delicious. The waitress was from Russia and did a great job. I would recommend this ace without hesitations

While I was disappointed with my first (and probably last) visit to Myrtle Beach, this restaurant was one of the few highlights of my trip. It has a nice layout, was very spacious, and has an elegant family feel to it. Absolutely great chips and the best dipping sauces ever, especially the one with the meat in it. It is... More

Let me start off by saying I don't hate Chipotle. They've just over-simplified the meaning of Mexican food. This restaurant is a whole different world. Free chips and fresh made salsa, generous portions, tasty food along with attentive service. A tech touch with tablet on table for ordering. But more than anything else, the food. The variety is huge, prices... More

Beautiful restaurant and the food is always! We usually take our entire family between 15 - 20 and they always do a good job with groups! The chips are great as well as the sauces! I love the cheese and onion enchiladas!
