We had a very large group of 35 so always appreciate a restaurant that can not only accommodate us, but provide really good service. The food was delicious AND delivered to everyone at the same time, they kept the drinks coming & the service was top notch. Will be a must do next time we visit Carmel.

We came around 2 in the afternoon on July 4th. There was one large group at two tables and not a lot of other tables with patrons. The four of us were seated almost immediately. After twenty minutes or more I started looking around and finally someone came to take our drink order which did not come for maybe another... More

Good Margaritas and good food for the price. Nice to get away and have some one else cook. More Tex-Mex than true Mexican but still good food

We love visiting Abuelo's for special occasions. The variety of food is great, and the menu changes. The chefs do a great job. The choices are a little limited for the picky eaters. One son usually orders the cheeseburger, but they have done away with that. Our food was great, hot, fresh and tasty!

We came here on Saturday around 3:00 after walking on the Monon trail. We were seated immediately. When our waitress was busy, the hostess filled our drink refills. We were really thirsty after walking the trail. I ordered the bacon wrapped tenderloin tips. They had a good smoky flavor. I liked the beans that came with this entrée as well... More

Abuelo's was our favorite Mexican restaurant for years. It has been in our opinion the best Tex-Mex in the area, with very fresh food served HOT with caring service at reasonable prices. Over the last six months we've noticed tables and chairs being permanently removed from the dining area. Tables now have electronic kiosks where you settle your own bill.... More

We had a large group of 16. It took 15 minutes to seat us, but the problem was the people that had finished there meal and sat for quite awhile at one of the tables they needed to put together for a large group. We started off with chips and three sauces that were each very interesting. My wife ordered... More

Arrived about 3 pm on a Saturday. We were seated immediately. And we sat... We got our drinks and appetizer. And we sat ....until our appetizer was gone and drinks empty before we could get someone's attention to take our meal order. The dip sampler was good. Avocado cream was wonderful. That's were the euphoria ends. I ordered the Tilapia... More

Beautiful decoration and average food. The decoration is Mexican but some items on the menu are distinctly non-Mexican.

What I love about this restaurant is that everything tastes very fresh rather than the typical greasy Mexican places. The fajitas are great, and the steak dishes are wonderful. I try something different every time and have always had a good meal. The service and decor are excellent as well, which always seems to make things better.
