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).

Good place to go for Mexican. Food is fresh, beer is cold and service is good, not much more you can ask for.

This place is nice, we have eaten at a couple of them. It's good food and the atmosphere is nice. The salsa with the fruit is awesome. The mashed potatos are awesome. Would recommend this place for sure.

Abuelos menu consist of the traditional Tex-Mex but much more. For example you can order spinach or avacado enchiladas. It is a family oriented restaurant and the staff is very friendly. When in Myrtle Beach, Abuelos is a must place to eat and a place I take my friends to.
