Pleasant experience at Abuelo's. Waitress was friendly, funny and very professional. Food was exceptional. There are many restaurants to chose from in Myrtle Beach and this one was a very good choice.

Prices were higher than expected for Mexican food. Nachos and fajitas didn't have much taste. Ordered a pitcher of margaritas. Not sure there was much if any tequila in it for $20. The service was good but that is it.

Love their Corn Chips, Chile Con Queso and 2 salsas (spicy red one and green tomato with pineapple and garlic), the other red slasa was ok. For 4 of us, they gave Chile Con Queso in a big deep plate. Was enough for 4 of us. The entrees came with 2 sides. With the order of 1 Lunch Crispy Taco... More

Wow! We went for lunch. First, outside, is a cool stone starue, then inside a large mural and a big statue of an abuelo with grandchild. Then, on to the food. Good, thin, chips served with 3 sauces while waiting. I had 2 enchiladas with rice & beans, very good. My wife had the seared tuna with mango salsa and... More

This was our first visit to abuelos. It will probably be our last. Our experience was not bad but it was not great, either. We had a new server and his training was lacking a bit. His recommendations were off the mark. The gluten free menu was sparse and I was afraid to ask if any other things on the... More

I went with my boyfriend's family, as it is a long standing favorite of theres and they go nearly every time they visit Myrtle Beach. This was my first time going and I was a little disappointed by their gluten free options. They had special made gluten free chips, which was awesome, but the actual gluten free menu left much...

The Southwestern Mexican style food here tastes excellent, is unusually varied, and served in a classy atmosphere. In addition to a larger-than-usual variety of enchilada stuffings, e.g. spinach, chicken with sour cream, shredded beef, etc. there are several seafood dishes, and even a Ribeye steak with two enchilada plate. The food tastes authentic, with genuine green chile used. The three... More

Free chips and 3 different salsas to dip in. Went there for lunch and portions were fine. It was a very tasty meal. Our waitress was Amy and she was great. For dessert we ordered the cake with white frosting and caramel sauce to go and it was delicious. Would definitely go there again.

The food here is, for the most part, better than most although on the pricey side. The portions are huge. The best deal is the Happy Hour from 4:00pm to 7:00pm but you must sit in the bar area. They serve great margaritas for a reasonable price. If that is your drink, try the Hand Shaken Margarita which comes in... More

My wife and I stopped here to eat while on a short trip to Myrtle Beach. The food was good, albeit more warm than hot. This restaurant is located in one of the many shopping areas along Rte. 17. The interior is very mice and provides a bit of a Mexican aura. I believe it is part of a chain,... More

Thanks for the positive feedback! We're so glad that you stopped by, however I wish we could have impressed you more with our food.
