I had the PESCADO GUERRERO. Fire-grilled Barramundi (Australian Sea bass) topped with shrimp, sea scallops, mushrooms, spinach, roasted poblano peppers and sliced avocado, in a white wine sauce. Simply delicious! The portion was huge. Couldn't finish it all, sadly.

Upscale looking place, however food was very disappointing. Food was over cooked. Did not taste fresh or authentic. Service was ok but server did not know the menu. It was a waste of hard earned money.

We've been to Abuelo's a few times in Roanoke and a few others. It is always excellent. The salsas are interesting - try mixing the green with your choice of red. After this, the portions are huge, and the combinations in dinners are all excellent. Our server was superb this time - I ordered a few enchiladas and she pointed... More

We visit the ROANOKE area several times a year on business and always stop at Abuelos. This visit was no surprise with great service and amazing food. Server was outstanding. Love the 3 salsa choices for the never ending chips. Can't say enough good things about Abuelos.
