After reading the reviews I was only expecting a "typical" chain resturant quality food. Wow, were we surprised!!! This was one of the best restuarant Mexican meals I'v ever had. The food was well seasoned, cooked just right, and steaming hot when it arrived at our table. So, we thought this was probably a "good night" and tried it again... More

This is a chain Mexican restaurant. Higher end and reliable good food. Whether in Dallas Albuquerque or Phoenix Abuelos has the same menu and the food is a very reliable high quality. Tonight we had fajitas for two. Two orders for four people. Easily twice what we needed to eat. Flavors were excellent meat was tender. Service was excellent. And... More

I ate recently at Abuelo's with a group using their private room. Although large, it suffers from poor acoustics. The tile floor and hard walls reflect sound so it was hard for every one to hear. Worse yet is if the doors are open to the main restaurant and the noise comes flooding in. Pros: it's conveniently located in Lewisville... More

Abuelo's is consistently good every visit. From Texas to Ohio it's good food and you know what your getting. Be careful because the plates and food are extremely hot!

Three salsas to sample, all delicious! I was impressed with the green sweet/spicy one in particular. I ordered the lunch portion of the chimichanga and was pleasantly surprised by the portions. The server was attentive without being obtrusive. If I'm ever in the area again, I'd definitely go back.

The food here is always great. We had our company Christmas lunch here and the service was fantastic even with us having a party of 25. We never had to wait for anything. But, the food is the real reason we go here.

If you go here, you must order their mashed potatoes. They are amazing!!! Also they have a nice assortment of salsas. This is one of my favorite Mexican restaurants.

The outside of this place is awesome, the gates, the courtyard, it looks like you are visiting an hacienda in Mexico. Inside they have a large bar area with plenty of seating and TVs. I had the 4 enchilada meal and they are awesome! The house margarita was great as well. I had dinner there and I'm coming back for... More

I eat at abuelos as much as I can. They have some of the best enchiladas hands down. We consistently eat at the bar due to the service received. One of our favorite Mexican restaurants.
