Stopped for a quick lunch before heading to Indianapolis Speedway activities. This restaurant was easy to find, had comfortable seating for lunch at bar, and offered variety of tasteful menu options. Good selection of beers on tap and attentive service. I had a Lunch Burrito which was flavorful and adequate amount, not overly stuffed feeling like at fast food Mexican restaurants. A bit pricey but food was worth it. Kind of different décor for a Mexican restaurant, seemed to me to be converted Italian restaurant with it's mix of furnishings.

We split a pitcher of margaritas and it was just what we needed after a long day of meetings. And the food was good too. Lovely decor, nice waiter....Wish this chain was in St Louis !

We usually go there on Cinco de Mayo because it is also my birthday. We have gone with and without children and had a great experience each time. The wait time was a bit longer than we would like, but it was worth it.

This restaurant has very good food at reasonable prices. If you like enchiladas you can have just about any combination of meat and sauce. Seniors can order off the lunch menu at any time of day. The service has been excellent every time we have gone there.

My family visits Abuelos on a regular basis, and we have tried many different menu items. None have disappointed in terms of taste and quality. Their sides are a little different than the regular Tex-Mex restaurant. The papas (seasoned cheesy mashed potatoes) are divine. Their ranchero beans are just average, nothing to write home about. Entrees have always been well cooked and seasoned. Their tortilla soup is also very good. Portions are always big enough to need a take-home box for the next day. Now for the brief downsides...

We have tried beef, chicken, and seafood dishes, and all tasted great--but there was an occasion when the two of us who shared a shrimp dish both got food poisoning later that evening, and the only thing we had eaten in common all day was the shrimp. Consequently, we avoid the seafood there now.

My only other recommendation is NOT to show up on a holiday without a reservation. We agreed to sit at the bar, and were ignored there for 30 minutes before we got up and left. Bartenders walked right by us numerous times. That is the one and only time we had unforgivably bad service. Generally, their wait staff are above average in responsiveness.
