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.

“Great food and service every time that we have eaten at Abuelo's.”
Reviewed September 3, 2013 via mobile

I have been to Abuelo's many times since it first opened and have never been disappointed. The food and service have always been first class and for the prices charged, the portions of food served have been very generous. I tend to alternate between their fajitas and enchiladas and on this latest occasion, all three of us having dinner there had their option of two eggs added to the enchiladas that we selected. It was a good choice. Although we occasionally try the other Mexican restaurants on the Grand Strand, we seem to keep coming back to Abuelo's which is clearly our favorite.

“Not bad happy hour”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

We were enticed by the prices of the food and drinks for happy hour and decided to give this a try... the food was nice, tasty and fresh. Their salsas are amazing! Chips are tasty and light too!
The service was decent.
Drinks were rather poor though. Mixers were too sweet, rather than tasted like they were made fresh.

“This is the best Mexican food served”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

We make sure we eat at Abuelo's every time we are near one. I even wrote the corporate office and asked them to open one near my home. The food is top notch. The service is even better. They take the time to listen to you and make recommendations as to what you might like. They have never been wrong. I can go on and on but all I will be saying is, you have to eat here.

“OMG Heaven!”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

The food at this restaurant was to die for! Our bill came to around 45 with tip and their was two of us. The atmosphere was very nice. However the waiter didn't bring my cocktail out until minutes before our food and I had to ask for it. I think they forgot about me.
