My husband and I had dinner here this evening. We live close by and we eat here often. It's one of our favorite places. We've always had excellent food here but the last couple of times including this evening the service has been slow. We arrived about 5 or 5:30 this evening and it wasn't crowded yet and it took...

Beautiful place without awesome food to go with it. Management is everything. Evidently it doesn't mean enough to have great reviews ;(

Was in town on business and a colleague who knows the area said she was taking us to a mexican restaurant. I was really surprised to arrive and find this huge very nice spot with amazing food and service. I definitely recommend Abuelo's.

This restaurant looks so nice when you walk in but it is quickly forgotten by the slow service and awful food. It could be a really great restaurant with some improvement but I will not be going back. I have eaten here a few times and every time it is the same. Bad service and bad food. We ordered queso...

Entering the restaurant, I was impressed with what I was seeing. The place has a feel of an upscale Mexican restaurant. The menu showed some appealing entrees that are not on your typical Mexican restaurant. I was looking forward to ordering something different than the usual enchilada, rice and beans fare. My wife ordered the stacked enchiladas (Mi Abuelo's Manjar)... More

Had a biz lunch this week. Lovely day ate on the patio. Good service. Ordered the Ahi Tuna appetizer - very nicely done. Spicy sauce on the side and nice mango salsa and greens. Just perfect. My colleagues had fajitas and they looked good too. Want to go back and try their hand shaken margaritas!

I've eaten here twice. From the outside appearance and the interior decor I expected outstanding food. Unfortunately, the food both times has been very average. I would rate them at "slightly better than Don Pablo's". Both times the food was fairly bland, not the freshest ingredients and not a lot of attention to detail. Again, I'm not saying that the...

My first visit and it was mostly good. We split the Firecracker shrimp which was not the best with overcooked very small shrimp. This I would not order again. What was great was the Pork Tenderloin Abrigada. This was cooked perfectly with juicy, tender pork wrapped in bacon. It comes with your choice of two enchiladas (we picked spinach and... More

Very good Mexican food (great tortilla chips), friendly staff, interesting wall murals and art. We were there with a large group and had a wonderful time with quick service. Everyone loved their food except the one that ordered nachos. The nachos were hard and thick (burned?) corn tortilla shells with more refried beans than the expected toppings and queso.

My wife and I went to dinner here on Saturday evening. We were seated promptly, our server was there immediately with chips and three types of salsa and took our drink order.
