Food was barely acceptable the last trip there, probably won't go back. There are just better Mexican food restaurants to eat in AZ with far better service aw well..

Abuelo's is a nice family style chain Mexican restaurant. The food is better than most chains and the dishes are more Tex-Mex than traditional Mexican. Our party had a definite variety from traditional combination plates with tacos, enchiladas, and tamales to house specialties of Alambre de Cameron and Pescado Guerreo. All were delightfully better than most chains. Dishes are all... More

The ambience is great; the ceiling in one of the large areas is painted with clouds. The food is excellent, as is the service. They have a great happy hour, too.

Had a great meal with great customer service. Starting from the fresh chips and salsa. Couldn't get enough of the salsa verde! So good! Ordered a skinny margarita, never had one before and it was perfect. Loved the fresh tortillas and the refried beans were so good! You can just tell that nothing came out of a can, worth every...

I had a Durango Burrito from the lunch menu. Just the correct amount of food and for a reasonable price. The food was delicious. Their lunch menu is available for seniors all the time.

Having moved to the area two months ago I was excited about the possible options for Mexican food in the area. I had been underwhelmed by the couple of spot I tried but finally found a keeper at Abuelo's. Had a combination with 3 types of enchiladas, tamale, chile relleno, and taco. All were very tasty individually. Portions were excellent.... More

We ate here for lunch and ordered from the lunch menu. My husband had the shrimp tacos and really liked them. I had the Mexican Stack which was very very tasty. The margaritas were good, too. But I have to agree with other reviewers that the service was lackluster. Not terrible but not really warm or eager to please.

Had our usual Sunday lunch this past weekend at Abuelo's. To my surprise the meal was just so so and my husbands was also so so... Not sure what changed, but the food seemed to be a little different, not as tasty as in the past... We were very disappointed. We also split a bottle of wine with lunch, and... More

First thing out of the gate, 3 people in our party wanted to order steak but the waitress came back to say there was only they were out of steak for the 3rd person. I ordered enchiladas and have had better nearly everywhere , U;d say the appearance put me off . They appeared to be flat without definition to... More
