Very good food at El Abuelo; can be a little noisy at times, but otherwise, a nice place to dine. Great service.

I first went here over 20 years ago. So I am not sure if it is the same owners or not. But the food still is good that when I am in Wenatchee, I will stop in for lunch or dinner.

The restaurant accommodated me when I asked for diablo shrimp. It was delicious. The spice was as hot as I wanted it, which I don't often find. However, the dish was still very tasty. Portions are large. The salsa was also spicy and hot. Staff was attentive and friendly . I loved it.

the staff were friendly, but slow getting back and refilling our drinks. The food was average. I liked the salsa with chips.

We had our association Christmas party here for 35 people. It was supposed to be a buffet with 2 drinks included. The banquet room was upstairs from the restaurant and it was a nice space. But, the only wait staff we saw was the guy who brought up the pans of food from the kitchen. Nobody took drink orders. They... More

Staff accommodates our large group every year. Food is good and they keep the chips, salsa, and drinks coming. We try a variety of items from the menu and never had a dish that was unacceptable.

It's the only place we eat Mexican in Wenatchee. Owner operated, small town feel. Awesome food with great sized portions, usually need a to-go-box. Service is very friendly and prices are good. Love this place !
