Description: Real Mexican food is a feast for the senses. From colorful peppers to the sounds of sizzling fajitas all the way to that incredible flavor. Each mouthful is just as much a result of the freshest ingredients as it is a result of the chef's expertise. Abuelo's offers diners the opportunity to experience real Mexican food, combining authentic, made from scratch classic dishes with the rich, subtle flavors of coastal and interior Mexican cuisine. Our executive Chef Luis Sanchez has spent decades perfecting our menu, and we boast a wide selection of wood-grilled fajitas, enchiladas, tacos, chile rellenos or Abuelo's unique House Specialties (depending on your location). To compliment your meal, our expert bartenders are masters at crafting signature favorites, including a wide variety of margaritas and swirls. Whatever the occasion, we'll stop at nothing to make your time at Abuelo's a memorable dining experience.

Had the tilapia with grilled shrimp. Ate every bite. Could've licked the plate clean but figured that would be frowned upon among civilized people. Perfect.

We come to Myrtle Beach often and we dine at the restaurant at least twice during our week long stay. The food here is always fresh, made to order, and plentiful. The Mexican cuisine is always a great way to go for dinner and this place will not disappoint. If you want to be frugal, you could easily do dinner for $25 or less for 2 people as you receive chips and mixed salsas with your entree and almost all entrees come with beans and rice or potatoes. There's plenty of choices under $10 and a few above that come with so much food it could feed 2 people. Hands down our favorite place to eat here in Myrtle Beach. Give it a try, you'll love it!

Good Mexican food is not easy to find. But We found it!
The 3 different salsas were incredible. I would have been happy with that alone but then I would have missed out.
My enchiladas were absolutely perfect!
The service was excellent & we always had a full glass. We never had to ask for anything.
This is a definate eat at again for us!

Not the most authentic Mexican food but still very good. The service is always great and there's absolutely nothing to complain about. Bathrooms were very clean!

Place was packed, short wait. Really good chips and dip. Fajita Chimichanga was really good, didn't care for the cheese on top of it but everything else on the plate was good. Nice atmosphere inside, ate at a booth by the bar to watch a game and was impressed by the size of the place. About as good as you can get for a chain Mexican restaurant by a mall in South Carolina.
