We have tried several local Mexican places and this is the one we come back too. I like it because there are several dishes that are vegetarian, which is what i prefer. I always get the spinach enchiladas with the cream sauce--really delicious. They also...More

Stopped by for dinner. Did not take long to get seated (<10 minutes). Server was attentive to our needs and quick to take care of us. They offer some items on the menu that you don't necessarily find at a lot of Tex-Mex places. Food...More

While shopping I stopped for a quick lunch. I was seated and served promptly. The food was tasty, server attentive, and self serve check out was handy.

Though it might not be the finest Mexican it has assets. I've had their seafood enchilada dish and it was very skimpy on the seafood. The mushroom appetizer is good. Their shrimp guacamole appetizer was disappointing. The 22 oz IPA on tap was very nice....More

My husband and I had a rare opportunity to grab an early dinner without kids. We arrived at 4 pm but when we still didn't have our food over an hour later we opted to leave. The chips and salsa are great though.

I have only been here once but was totally impressed. Service was a little off but for the most part good. Food was Delicious and the Green Salsa is to die for. I even bought some to take home. Food was very good

Beautiful place without awesome food to go with it. Management is everything. Evidently it doesn't mean enough to have great reviews ;(

Was in town on business and a colleague who knows the area said she was taking us to a mexican restaurant. I was really surprised to arrive and find this huge very nice spot with amazing food and service. I definitely recommend Abuelo's.
