I picked up food from here last night and when I got back to the hotel, I was pretty disappointed overall. To start off, I'm a self-admitted chip snob. If a restaurant doesn't make their own chips, I'm out. To be fair, they do make their own (I asked immediately). But, they were very thin, barely cooked chips with little... More

Took the family for an early dinner and was seated quickly. Inside the restaurant, the decor was nice. Service was fairly quick and staff was friendly. However the food was not that great. Our rice and beans was practically cool by the time it came our table. The food was pretty bland and lacking the typical Mexican flavor. It was... More

This Abuelo's looks like any other. The decor was fine. We arrived late around 8:30 on a Friday night. They were not busy but told us it would be a few minutes because they were taking the order on a 10-top and needed to give the waiter time so he wasn't overwhelmed. There were lots of empty tables so I... More

We have eaten here several times and have always enjoyed the visit. We've tried several different dishes and each one has been delicious. The service is always excellent and we always have plenty of food to take home to enjoy again later.

I absolutely love going to here. The food is always delicious and it's always consistent every time I go. That's very hard to find. The 3 different sauces are great with the chips before the meal. The best dish I think on the menu is the MI Abuelo Manjar. It's 3 enchiladas with beans and their amazing papa's con Chile.... More

We have visited this establishment before and were in the area so decided to stop in. The difference between this Mexican restaurant and others is the freshness of all the food they serve. Their selection of sides is not like other establishments and we were very satisfied with our choices, vegetarian fajitas and tilapia Veracruz. We definitely will come back... More

We were seated without a wait. Stephanie, our waitress, was very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. The chips and sauce are some of the best I have had. My wife and I tried the Tilapia Veracruz and a margarita. Both were very tasty. Many other items on the menu looked very interesting. We will return and try other items.... More

I love the food at Abuelos! Although it's a chain and I'm sure some folks do not find it authentic mexican food, it is very good! They start off with the best chips and salsa you can find at a restaurant. The chips in particular are very thin and crispy and done just perfectly. The main dishes are consistently good.... More

We come here a couple times a month and we've never had any issue with service or the food. The wait staff is very friendly and fast. There's a nice variety on the menu and the prices are reasonable. If you plan to come back, you should join the dining club so you can earn points.
