The combination plates are huge. The plates are the size of a turkey platter. My wife and I shared a combo platter with 4 enchiladas a taco and my favorite... the Chile relleno. We also tried the 8 layer dip which was excellent. The house made chips were fresh and delicious. Despite sharing we both left full and still didn't... More

They serve what I call "Americanized" Mexican food...but it is very good. Prices are a tad higher than I like, but you get what you pay for. You should be able to feel comfortable knowing you will receive a good meal.

This place has a great menu and wide variety of upscale Mexican dishes. For the most part we've really enjoyed dining there. Their mid week kitchen staffing can be slow at times. The wait staff is usually excellent. We dine here about once a quarter.

Abuelo's serves consistently good Mexican food. I hadn't been there since I moved, but going back was great. I had the chicken enchiladas and they were tasty and hot. The service was very attentive and excellent. Whenever I am in the area I also make sure to visit Abuelo's - it is consistently good!

To celebrate a recent graduate we took the family to Aluelo's. I choose a lighter dish and only ordered the Firecracker Shrimp. It was perfect, about 12 tender shrimp without the rice or beans. My son had the pork loin that was so tender and flavorful served with an enchilada. We also ordered layered dip that was fresh and served... More

We have eaten here twice during the past month, eating the senior size portions. We have tried rellenos, enchiladas, tacos and quesadillas. All have been served piping hot, fresh, and very tasty. Prompt attentive service. We will continue to return as it is convenient to Chandler Mall.

We had a large group (9). We were seated immediately, drink orders taken And filled and orders taken and quickly filled. Waitress was very attentive. Abuelo's is not the traditional Mexican food - a completely different taste and flavor. I asked the waitress what it was called and she said, Tex-Mex.I had chicken enchiladas with cheesy mashed potatoes. It was... More

We stopped here for lunch and found a big restaurant that's part of a larger regional chain of 40 locations. They actually started in Lubbock, Texas and moved West. Our server Nina was definitely a Keeper. She has a long tenure at this eatery. The chip and salsa were a bit off. The chips are very thin and came stuck... More

In my opinion, the very best Mexican food you can get in Arizona. I will say here that I'm from the Oklahoma/Texas area, so what I want is Tex-Mex, not bland Sonoran Mexican food. I have lunch at this location at least once a week, & have been know to go more. Yes, this is a chain, but who cares... More
