I have been to Easton dozens of times, and driven by Abuelo's figuring it was just a mediocre chain restaurant. My wife and I were in the mood for Mexican before a movie, so we stopped in. It was a Saturday night and busy, but we got seats at the bar immediately. Margaritas were good, and the food was good... More

Option of romain lettuce with the fajitas instead of tortillas for a low carb option. What a great idea!

I agree with the reviewer who commented on the poor service when their normal server, Joey, was off. I ordered a lunch combo of an enchilada & a chile relleno. The server assured me that both could be made without meat, with cheese instead. When the order finally came, the Chile was stuffed with meat.. When I called the server... More

Food here is very good, not outstanding, but to reach that level for me would require house-made tortillas and more authentic "Mexico" Mexican food. This is TexMex and very good, so good we ate here twice during our four day visit to Columbus. The enchiladas are very good, but our favorite was the bacon-wrapped pork tenderloin medallions served in the... More

My sisters and I try to meet for dinner when I am in Columbus. One of our favorite places is Abuelos at Easton. We enjoyed a pitcher of Margharis with our meals. Everything arrived in a timely fashion and was hot and delicious. We were not hurried and had plenty of time to enjoy our meal and time together.

We eat at Abuelo's about 2x month. We love Joey, by far the best server. Today was his day off and it showed. We arrived around 2:30, normal lunch time for us. Maybe 8-10 tables, including patio, occupied. Seemed to be 3 or 4 servers. We were seated fine but the young man who waited on us was either overwhelmed... More

I usually post a pic, but can't this time as we never got our food. We arrived and sat down with our kids on a Sunday night. The place had a few larger groups, but was overall pretty dead. Totally fine by us as we had our kids with us. We ordered. After almost 45 minutes of waiting with our... More

The free chips and 3 salsa combo starter is a great way to begin the dining experience. Our server assisted me in placing my order, as I was not sure what to get. The chicken medallions is my favorite option.

I usually visit Abuelo's for lunch, but one weekend we went there at lunch so I splurged and had a Margarita. So I know they are good. I usually get the "premium" Margarita because I'm worth it! Anyway, I had lunch once again there yesterday. It is on the other side of town from me so when I'm in the... More

We've been here a few times. We've sat at the bar and also at the tables. The drinks are great, the restaurant is decorated nicely and the food is incredible. Service is always wonderful.

Description
Real Mexican food is a feast for the senses. From colorful peppers to the sounds of sizzling fajitas all the way to that incredible flavor. Each mouthful is just as much a result of the freshest ingredients as it is a result of the chef's expertise. Abuelo's offers diners the opportunity to experience real Mexican food, combining authentic, made from scratch classic dishes with the rich, subtle flavors of coastal and interior Mexican cuisine. Our executive Chef Luis Sanchez has spent decades perfecting our menu, and we boast a wide selection of wood-grilled fajitas, enchiladas, tacos, chile rellenos or Abuelo's unique House Specialties (depending on your location). To compliment your meal, our expert bartenders are masters at crafting signature favorites, including a wide variety of margaritas and swirls. Our new extended Happy Hour includes Sunday 11 am - 6 pm and Saturday 11 am - 6 pm. We continue to include great offerings M-F 3pm - 7 pm though! Catering is also an option, our staff are adept at delivering a professional, hassle-free and delicious meal. Whatever the occasion, we'll stop at nothing to make your time at Abuelo's a memorable dining experience.
