We ate here for lunch after reading the comments on TA. We didn't want to eat directly in town as it was crowded and lunchtime. So, we opted for the El Abuelito. We were greeted and seated right away. The place appeared clean and bright. We started with the Cocktail de Camarones. Very good! Plenty of shrimp, avocado, cilantro, etc. The sauce was delicious! Our lunch selections were served within 10 minutes of our completion of the shrimp. House Margarita and Pina Colada were great. The food was very good, large portions and fresh ingredients. Service was efficient. We were pleased with our choice of a Mexican restaurant. Good food without the crush of people in town.

Restaurant was across street from our motel. We had been riding motorcycles all day through Yellowstone in 32 degree temp with rain then snow then frozen rain and back to snow. We needed a good warm meal and a margarita!! Their house margaritas were excellent made with fresh lime juice and none of that "bottled sweet & sour taste". Very fresh. The shrimp in green sauce was some of the best green sauce that I can remember, shrimp were large and fresh. Friends ordering stand-bys like tacos and enchiladas also gave El Abuelito a big thumbs up. I'd definitely go back.

This place is as authentic as it gets, and is affordable. I'm there or at the sister restaurant Agave in Driggs, ID at least once a month! You won't find Enchiladas Supremas, but you will find good, filling, real food for a very reasonable price.

I visit this restaurant every time I get to Jackson area . Like someone said before Margaritas are the best . Make sure you have someone to share it cause it is BIG .
Food is great and the price is less expensive than most equals compared restaurant in the area ..
This is truly mexican food with a mexican atmosphere .Very clean place.
Most people working on the restaurant are from mexico which will make you feels in the right spot when youre in there .
Love it ... will visit it again

Been to JH many times, tried a couple of the other Mexican restaurants, this was the closest to walk to, the outside hasn't changed since I 1st came to JH many years ago, the inside had a bright odd setup, kind of plain, service was average, food slightly better than average.
