The restaurant is beautifully decorated. The "sky" looks like you're seated outside in a garden and you're dining al fresco. The food is good, but my kids all walk away having upset tummies. I however, don't experience that problem. The food is good, but seems a little pricey. You're definitely paying a little more for a more upscale environment than... More

If I have a choice for going out for Mexican food, Abuelo's is my pick. The food is fresh and not super spicy. It is more Tex-Mex than pure Mexican and that is my preference. I have ordered several items on the menu and they are all good. Besides serving the traditional Spanish rice, they also serve Papas con Chile... More

We were not impressed. We were seated a very uncomfortable table and the service was very slow. Unforgettable

I first visited Abuelo's about 12 years ago. My Best Friend had moved to Arizona (from Chicago) and I would visit her often. She had suggested going to eat at Abuelo's one visit, and it became our favorite restaurant when I was in town. The atmosphere was really nice (the sky painted ceiling reminded us of our trips to Vegas),... More

Very fine food and a wonderful dining experience. Not your local Mexican food place. This is up-scale and worth the trip. Parking is easy and handicap access is good. Wait times can start around 4pm, get in early and enjoy

This was my 1st time to this restaurant. We had no problem getting a table and the service was great. They have a wide choice of items to pick from. All the chips you want before and after the meal came. The food came out very hot so you have to be careful when you start eating your meal. Once... More

We enjoyed a delicious meal for my wife's birthday. Everyone enjoyed their favorite salad and meal. It looked as though everyone ordered something different as there were forks tasting each other selection. Our server was terrific. She was attentive but not looking over your shoulder every minute. I personally appreciate the team work between all of the waiter personnel. It... More

Been to this restaurant a few times and each time it's been perfect. They do NOT take reservations so be prepared to wait around the dinner rush.

Was very surprised at the service level here which was spot on from the bartenders, hostess and wait staff... Nice job. Food was also good with fresh ingredients and timely arrival. Good value for the buck and all delivered in an exciting and comfortable environment. I would dine there again.
