Always the best Mexican food around. My parents just live the place and we have the restaurant on a once a month schedule. The manager, Jessica, is always extra accommodating with my Dad's specific wants - one of 3 booths, certain waitress, etc. Speaking of...More

We love this restaurant! Delicious Mexican food - enchiladas, chimichangas, chili rellenos, and especially the cheese crisps. You MUST try a cheese crisp! I recommend Abuelo’s highly.
