“Enjoyable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

The food was fresh with a great menu to choose from. The margaritas were tasty. The server was great and she brought us different kinds of salsa to try and did not charge a add on. The line up was long but they happily sent us to the bar to wait for a table. Our friend who was dining with us is from Mexico and he gave his thumbs up!

“First visit of many more to come”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

Today was my first stop by Abuelo's in Chandler andmy only regret is that I hadn't heard of it sooner. The interior is beautiful, the service was top notch, and the food was absolutely delicious. To top it all off, I spent about $10 less here for a party of two at lunch than I usually spend at another local Mexican restaurant, and everything about Abuelo's was better.

I'm definitely a huge fan at this point and highly recommend this restaurant.

“Ehh..”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

i've been to other abuelo's in other towns, and this one is no different.
Lunch at 4PM on a Friday found ourselves being put in the bar area because the main dining room had exactly one server covering. we then waited more than i was happy about for the bar area server to arrive.. once he did things were fine.
food was okay, but not great.
this is your standard mexican chain. not sure i'd call it as upscale as i see some do here.
