This is a casual restaurant. The food was good and I loved the margaritas. It wasn't too packed at dinnertime, and it seems like a nice place to take kids.

I must say the food is good, not consistent. BUT, who knows what is in it when it comes to cleanliness. I just wonder if the kitchen is as unkempt as the dining room, where I would assume they would want to make a good impression. As you sit, the first thing you notice is the dirty walls. I was...

Food was good, service was ok. But the bathrooms not being kept up was was got me for such a nice restaurant (note I don't care about the paper towels being thrown about). My feet stuck to the floor and the mess in the corners makes it obvious that they haven't cleaned in a while (that doesn't happen overnight). Just... More

The family had lunch/dinner here. The ambience is conducive for a family to have a great time, talk and enjoy each other's company in a non-rushed southwest setting. The chips and margaritas were great as well as the various salsas. The food was very good and the service was ok. The menus is complete with something for anyone's taste. A... More

Took friend there for dinner because she loves it. I found the food was okay but nothing to right home about. Friend made it better than it was. Sat on patio and that was nice.

Visited this restaurant with a party of 9 (four adults and 5 kids). The staff was very friendly and attentive. The food was just average. I have had a lot of great Mexican food so I will admit I can be hard to please. I would say this is American Mexican food. Nothing was wrong with it but I wouldn't... More

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. Our new extended Happy Hour includes Sunday 11 am - 6 pm and Saturday 11 am - 6 pm. We continue to include great offerings M-F 3pm - 7 pm though! Catering is also an option, our staff are adept at delivering a professional, hassle-free and delicious meal. Whatever the occasion, we'll stop at nothing to make your time at Abuelo's a memorable dining experience.
