We stopped here on our way to Nashville - It was a quick trip off of 81 and there are a lot of other choices around it! They brought chips to the table to start and they were hot and paper thin!!!!!!! So amazing and...More

This is the place to go if you want freshly cooked Mexican food, made from scratch. Unlike other Mexican restaurants, they make everything on-site (even the salsa, tortillas and chips are made fresh daily). This is even better than home-made (unless you have an abuela...More

Stopped into Aubelos during a stop in Roanoke and it never disappoints!! I always love the enchiladas the most. The sever was able to keep up with our hungry family and did a great job. I would stop again and highly recommend!

I've been going to Roanoke Va on business for years and our first stop is always Abuelos. The first visit was so good we went back 3 days later. First class service from warm, friendly wait staff. Food was delicious and a great value.

We visit every time we travel through Roanoke! Their salsas are so good! Wait staff is always great! The chile rellenos are the best here of anywhere I eat them! There's a reason they are voted number one Mexican chain for the past ten years!

We had a wonderfully delicious lunch outside on the patio. Our server was Zack. From the opening chips and three types of salsa through the entrees, it was fabulous. Lunch portions are very large and filling. Instead of the standard beans and rice, you have...More

I used to frequent this place as you got great, different Mexican food for a great price. Last time I went, bout a year ago, they had jacked their prices so high I haven't been back. A big shame.
