Came here on Cinco de Mayo with friends. They handled the crowd pretty well. Food is good, a little more expensive than the mom and pop Mexican places. Service was okay. The waitress was kind of hard to flag down at times.

Have been there a handful of times. The food is upscale Mexican and relatively good. The service has been substandard every time we've been there.

My husband is a vegetarian so we have to find places with great choices. He ordered the vegetarian fajita. The cheese, pico de gallo & sour creme come on the side so you can stick to your vegetarian diet. I ordered shrimp tacos. Delicious. Charro...More

Too much cilantro. Chips and salsa come out in a small plate with 3 different salsa's - not nearly enough for the chips provided. Food is average. Service is sometimes spotty. Atmosphere and cleanliness is fine.

My daughter and I love this place. The staff is always very kind and the food is always great. It can get very busy at times however the wait to be seated is never that long and its well worth it.

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.
