We've been eating at Abuelo's in Texas for years. For the first time we ate at this location. It was everything that the Abuelo's in other locations is all about - great Tex Mex food! To start off with, the chips and salsa are the best. The chips are super thin and have just the right amount of salt on... More

We have eaten at an Abuelo's in Oklahoma City and in Midland, so I was really happy when I saw this one in Chandler. This restaurant has extremely good Mexican food. They must have good practices in consistency as there food is always good quality. Also the shaken margaritas are the best. This was a great meal after traveling for... More

We dined here with friends following a wedding ceremony, and greatly enjoyed the decor and atmosphere. Our server was pretty slow, but the food was good and the Sangria Swirl is a must!

When we saw all of the positive reviews about the authentic food, we were rather excited and looking forward to some local and fresh dishes. Sadly, this is a national chain and it tasted it. The flavors are muddled and the quality is just ok. My husband's chiles Rellenos were the highlight of the night, but we would not eat... More

Three of us went to abuelos. We had been there before and remembered the food as being good and the fare a little above average. Setting was nice with murals and a blue sky to give the impression of dining outdoors in a hacienda like environment. Food is above average so if you believe you pay for what you get,... More

For the food I would have rewarded this place only 4 stars. It was good and the dish was huge but I definitely had better Mexican restaurants and even more cheaper ones. Then I tried the Margarita, both frozen and both on the rocks the Margarita is amazing. Definitely makes this place worthy of 5 star. One glass and you... More

The service and food quality is very good. Recommend purchasing 100.00 worth of gift cards at Costco for 79.00 to get a good savings

The food is always delicious and the service is very good. They take reservations which is a plus since a lot of restaurants around Chandler do not. We have eaten there for many years and will continue to do so!
