This is an upscale Mexican place where the wait staff is just a "little bit" snooty. The food is very good (although a bit spicier even than usual Mexican fare, IMO), but do be prepared to pay for it... you'll probably spend $40 or more...More

Very nice lunch. I loved the 3 different salsas offered with the chips. The only down side was the server was very slow and not very attentive.

Waitress was a complete snob. She provided good service. So whatever. Food was prompt and warm but bland. Find another place to eat.

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. Stop by for an unmatched Happy Hour! Whatever the occasion, we'll stop at nothing to make your time at Abuelo's a memorable dining experience.
