I usually go to Abuelo's on special occasions only as the check at the end of the meal is a little high for my usual budget. In return, I expect excellent food. I was disappointed to find that they had changed some of the recipes. In particular, the cheeses they are using now are very, very bland. This changes the... More

Great food , day at the bar because they were so busy. Excellent service there and great drinks. Best Irish coffee I'd had since Las Vegas at the RiRa pub.

This place has great Mexican food. The atmosphere is very noisy so it's hard to sit and visit without feeling like you're yelling at each other. Always a wait, so go early!

I always get the same thing when I go. The chicken zucchini plate is the best! The spinach casserole is to die for, and their beans are the best in town! Not to mention, the Strawberry Mango Margarita is delicious!

While out looking at Christmas Lights my wife and I thought we would eat at this establishment. The parking lot was full but we decided to try anyway. The greeter informed us the wait was 15 minutes and she was pretty close. we were seated and shortly a waiter came to our table. We placed our order and when it... More

Long wait time . This is not authentic . We ordered the chicken/steak fajitas which was ok. Other meal ordered was the Talapia tacos . Had to return the tacos as they were soggy . They were pleasant and great service. Just the good wasn't the best.

Rec'd a coupon in an email for a free entree with the purchase of one. My birthday present! Waiting time for a table was zero; walked up to the counter, said "2" and the hostess asked us to follow her. Chips were crispy; salsa was disappointingly bland. If you ask, they'll bring hotter salsa. I did, they did, and it... More

Abuelo's is a large Mexican restaurant that sees a steady stream of customer traffic - and with good reason. An impressive menu offers diners a practically endless selection of quality Mexican food. The ambience in the restaurant is nice, which was a pleasant relief given how big and busy the place is. Service was efficient and friendly. We got beverages... More

Abuelo's has it all...great location, great atmosphere, great service, and great/quality food. The menu contains selections that will meet anyone's desire to enjoy a great Mexican meal. The drinks are out of this world. The appetizers offered are prepared to perfection.

This is the wife's favorite restaurant in town. A great Mexican restaurant. Try a nice sampler plate.
