“Very good mexican food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

We were quickly seated on a Friday night. Good atmosphere; seemed to be new & modern. The service was great; always kept the glasses full! The house special (grilled) was recommended, but it wasn't as good as the enchiladas. Those were fantastic! The chips and salsa were also excellent. Overall a good choice.

“Awesome chile rellenos!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

I've never been disappointed at Abuelo's, and this visit was no exception! My first time ordering the chile rellenos (I opted for the shredded beef rather than cheese) and the meal was wonderful. The only problem was portion sizes were too large to leave room for dessert!! Our server was friendly and helpful, and very attentive to us. A wonderful place to go for special occasions, or just a great meal!

“When visiting Arizona, the first thing to do is eat Mexican food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

My wife and I are from Vermont, so the first thing we did when we arrived in Arizona was find an authentic Mexican restaurant (there is no good Mexican food in Vermont, sad to say). Abuelo's did not disappoint. Right off the bat we were greeted by a very pleasant server who brought us chips with three types of salsa, each one distinctive and delicious. The main courses were excellent, and we also enjoyed the indoor courtyard decor- complete with statuary! Abuelo's was the perfect start to our Arizona vacation.

“Added to your food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

We have been to this restaurant several times and it has been fine. However, on my last trip I found an insect like a beetle crawling under one of my enchiladas. Once captured and the server called he quickly snatched our plates and callled for the duty manager. The duty manager arrived and said it must have come from outside as we were seated outside, despite the fact that it had crawled out from under the enchilada. He basically wasn't interested and didnt even initally offer a discount or an apology until we questioned him. I then sent two emails to Abuelo's company website and haven't received a reply other than the automated reply saying they will get back to you. In summary if you like added insects and lousy customer service this is the place to visit.
