“Lunch, September 14, 2012”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

Our first visit to Abuelos in Carmel, IN. Good food, and good service. The chips were light and tasty with a variety of salsas. I had the lunchtime fajitas and was able to have both corn and flour tortillas. Tasty and enjoyable. My partner had enchiladas and the best thing was the avocado enchilada. I tried his and have to say going back would order a plateful of those, excellent. Our server was attentive and never left the glass empty. Portions were large. All in all a good visit and I will return.

“Don't go here if you like Mexican food!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2012

Seriously, the chili con queso tasted like it came from a can. Food had no flavor. When we tried voice our concerns, they seemed to fall on deaf ears. Service was no better than the food!

“Wonderful! Everything we expected and more!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

Wonderful place! I was iffy about trying a steak there! It was perfect. The dip sampler is great! The online menu represents the food very well. We told the manager it was our first visit and he gave us a free dessert! Atmosphere is great too!
