Chips and salsa were great. 3 different types of salsa..and all were really good. My draft beer was not very cold. My Fajitas were OK. I dont think they make the fajitas as... More

I discovered Abuelos while on a business trip in Oklahoma City two months ago. What I hadn't known is that it is a chain. I visited Abuelos in Myrtle Beach, SC last night and was once again not disappointed. The food is great and very authentic, which is surprising for a chain establishment. The service was exceptional as well. The... More

This was our 4th visit to this restaurant and each time it seems to get a little better. We enjoy eating at the bar, and this place has a great bar scene. Not to mention that they whip up a really decent Manhattan and an equally delicious Sangria. They have a great Happy Hour menu that includes several Mexican favorites... More

Went here during a tropical storm so it was unusually busy. We told our server who looked stressed to the max to take her time bc we had nothung else to do. Lunch took 2 hours but we had a wonderful time and loved the food and drinks. .highly recommended!

This place was SUPPOSED to be rated the #1 Mexican restaurant in the USA, but I think whomever it was that rated this place was either drunk or high. There was not one think that I liked about this place except for the fancy décor and appearance of both the outside and inside, so I guess I paid almost $50... More

This restaurant has a large menu. Many items to choose from. I had the 10 ounce rib eye steak with enchiladas. It was very reasonably priced at $18. The steak was excellent, prepared medium rare as ordered. The shredded beef and shredded pork enchiladas were very good. Served with beans and mashed potatoes. My partner had a quesadilla, served with... More

The food prices are reasonable & food is excellent!! The 5 of us ate a late lunch here for about $60 (not including drinks or tip) & had... More

Atmosphere was nice and the service was great. Over all it was probably the best meal we had while we were there. We loved the chips, the... More
