We had been to this restaurant once before and ate there. Husband ordered carnitas tacos but we were amazed at how small the amount of meat they put in it!! Decided to give them another chance and ordered to go. Got the carnitas tacos for the hubby again but what a major difference. The 5acos were stuffed with so much... More

Came during happy hour, sat in the bar and ordered food and drinks off the happy hour menu. Great salsa, chips and queso! Drinks were delicious, service was very friendly and the food was delicious!

The lady that is supposed to greet you at the front had no personality what so ever! Why would this be the person to set the mood for my dinning experience? My waitress was nice. I ordered the chicken fajitas. the onions were cooked but the raw peppers were placed on top of them and not cooked at all. The... More

It was girl's lunch day! We had an awesome waiter that never let our tea glass get half empty. He was on his toes! They seated us near the bar area and it was nice and quiet. He kept close check on us the entire time. Our food was exactly how we ordered it and tasted just right! It is... More

Maybe we didn't get the right selection but my whole family was not impressed. I shared two enchiladas and a Chile Relleno with my son and the food was luke warm and didn't have much taste. My wife got 2 cheese enchiladas and they were just ok.

Took my wife on Mother's Day at a spur of the moment. It was busy, but we were seated promptly. We got there a little before 7:00pm. We were able to take advantage of the happy hour prices on drinks. Happy hour is from 4-7 pm. I had the premium margarita and my wife had the regular margarita. I highly... More

I usually avoid chain restaurants since the food is usually just so-so. Our friends suggested Abuelos. We had not been there in a while and agreed to meet them there. Our friends knew the manager and he came out and made some suggestions. WOW!!!! I was very surprised at the food quality and how non-chain it was. We didn't order... More

Although this is a chain, the food is freshly prepared, the menu extensive, and the atmosphere exceptional. Tables were not crowded one on top of the other, and the scenic views within the restaurant (murals all over - even the ceiling) are not to be missed. Paula, our server, was extremely knowledgeable and provided a variety of recommendations. We started... More
