Restaurants in the Myrtle Beach area are always crowded in the summer. We went to Abuelo's for a quick dinner. I am not sure whether they were short of staff or just very busy, but it took a while to be waited on and it took forever for my wife to get a soda refill. Our food was fine except... More

This is our favorite place for Mexican in Myrtle Beach. They have great drinks and food. You can get the classic Mexican tacos/burritos etc. but they also have different Mexican dishes to try. We love their happy hour menu of food and drinks. The Hand Shaken Margarita is like getting two in one. We like the individual nacho's. You can... More

There are a ton of dishes to choose from here and we haven't had anything that isn't really good. Everything was very flavorful, hot and fresh. They also take "call ahead" seating which is helpful if you have little ones.

My spouse and I have been twice, one for lunch and one for dinner. On both trips the service was great and the food was excellent. They have so many choices it's so hard to make a decision. So far we have had fajitas, ground beef burrito covered in white cheese, and angel hair pasta with shrimp. The chips and... More

Great service and good food. The atmosphere is also very clean and wonderful. I just wish they had the white Mexican cheese (queso blanco), because they only had a taco like cheese.

I LOVE This place. I haven't ordered anything I didn't devour. The tea is great also. I have to give this restaurant 5 star because that is what it deserves.

We went as the reviews were great. We ordered 3 tapas and 5 meals and two alcoholic drinks. We felt the food was good but heavy. A lot of butter, cheese, sauce added to the dishes. The mojito was pleasant and not sugary which was a nice change. The strawberry margarita was very sugary. The interior of the restaurant is... More

We were seated, promptly. Our waitress was awesome! We ordered our beverages and lunch and Sara answered all of our questions. She explained how the ZIOSK worked and we really loved that! Haven't ever seen or used a ZIOSK in a restaurant before & it was user-friendly. Each table has one. Food was average to us, but I see from... More

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. Whatever the occasion, we'll stop at nothing to make your time at Abuelo's a memorable dining experience.
