“Used to be better”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

Like many restaurants, this one has sacrificed quality tto keep prices down and it shows. Service was excellent and a very friendly staff.

“Average food”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

By the looks of this restaurant, I would have thought the food would be much better. It was "ok".
I usually give restaurants a second chance, and the second visit was "ok" too. Honestly, if I'm going to go out for Mexican food, it will not be here. The food is not aweful, but I'd rather spend the money at a restaurant that I'll love.

“A Great New Look at Mexican Cooking”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

Abuelo's looks like a chain restaurant with impressive building and large dining room, but has a nice intimate feel just about any where you sit. They bring the traditional tortilla chips with hot and mild salsa, but add a very mild green sauce with pineapple. It was a wonderful gift for my wife who can't handle the heat of even mild salsa. We found the entrees very interesting and the service excellent. I had the soft chicken tacos with re-fried beans which were both excellent. I also substituted the cheesy potato which was a real treat since I'm not fond of rice. My wife had a couple of sides and found the black beans much less interesting than the re-fried ones.
