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.

“Good Food Good Atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

This is a fun restaurant with an indoor seating and when nice outside there is outdoor seating with live music. The food is consistently good. They have a large selection of traditional mexican food and just good old tex-mex. The drinks are good too.

“Great Mexican Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

I have never met somebody who doesn't love Abuelo's. It is a very large restaurant and has a big menu with changing specials. They give chips with different types of salsa's for free which are really good. It seems fairly priced for how much food you get.

“Consistant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

The food at Abuelo's is always good. Bring your patience and wallet. It's always a 45 minute wait at lunch or dinner to be seated, almost any day. We ate at 2:00 in the afternoon last Saturday which was good, but wait staff was scattered around the large seating area and sometimes we had our water refilled and chips replaced and sometimes we didn't. It took a very long time to get our checks so we could leave and get some of the family back on the road. The meal was good, portions large.

“Great food! Good atmosphere!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2014

Party of 8. Everyone enjoyed their food. The service was awesome! Food was quick. They also were ok with us staying a little longer to finish our conversation. Even though they were fast they did not rush us.
