You can be served Mexican food at numerous locations throughout the East Valley but if you are looking for an experience, you will need to visit Abuelo's! This is a great place to dine for a quiet evening out or even reward your employees with, since they have an area for banquets as well! Fantastic food complimented by great drinks... More

We chose Abuelo's because my granddaughter had never been there and it was her birthday. It had been awhile since our last visit, enough so that the menu had slightly changed. Abuelo's atmosphere is reminiscent of lovely Mexican resorts and that had not changed. We had reservations and were promptly seated. A friendly busboy brought chips and two sets of... More

I have tried so many enchiladas from so many different places. I love Abuelo's the best. The service is good and I love the ambiance. Highly recommended.

We came to this place because our neighbor said it was good and the Maricopa paper had a coupon so we should try it. They were correct it has to be the best Mexican food we have had in Arizona. I gave a special order for my dinner and it came out as ordered. My wife had a shrimp dish... More

Yes, I get this is a franchise, but the food is so tasty and fresh. Love the variety of salsas, especially the green/citrus salsa. The Sangria Swirl is also a favorite as are the papas- potatoes. We chose our travel destinations on whether there is an Abuelos!

We were a complicated trio with various requirements. I opted for a mixed tortilla dish...the size could've fed four people, the ate just looked like cheese and slop. There wasn't really a taste difference and my request for a dish with no pepper/capsicum/bell pepper was monumentally missed as one of the wraps had a whole green pepper in it. The... More

My wife and I went to Abuelos's because we found a coupon in the Maricopa paper and we are so glad we tried this place. The service was great the waiter Alfonso was attentive but not intrusive. I had the quasadilla (the entree not the appetizer). This was the best quesadilla I have ever had. My wife had three tacos... More

I ordered the stuffed shrimp and bacon wrapped filet and was not disappointed. The shrimp were meaty and flavorful. The steak was cooked as I specified and full of juices. The adult drinks were pretty good too.
