Atmosphere is nice, but food is mediocre. Can't figure out the attraction of the potatoes. Heavy and greasy!

BIG menu, with friendly staff and fast service. Lots of atmosphere. Plenty of parking, and easy to find. Will definitely go back.

Ok place. Usually crowded. Go to the bar and ask for the best margarita in the joint. Have two or three, get some food. Then, call Uber or Lift to get home. Don't margarita and drive. Trust me on this one. PS: Most food you order will be ok. But after 3 margaritas, who cares?

We visited there over the Christmas holidays twice, once to check out where it was and once for a group event. On both occasions, the food was terrific and the service was excellent. It is a little hard to find, but worth the search. We were there for a couples dinner and a group lunch.

Great margartas, chili relleno delish, ask for hotter sauces, loved the tamales - enuf meat and not heavy. Atmosphere was very nice. This was good mexican food. Can't seem to find any decent Mexican food around this area. Don't get it. If your 60+ you can order dinner from the lunch menu and get good size dishes at lunch prices!

This is a great Mexican food Restaurants. We enjoy the fish dishes but the enchiladas, and bacon wrap shrimp are the best in the valley. So many choices of enchiladas with 6 sauces to put on your enchiladas. We love the food and it's worth a visit.

Fun place for a group. We had 8 in ours and the service couldn't of been better. All of our food came at the same time which is great. I had the enchiladas. You can pick the type which is nice. Be sure to order the papas. They are a wonderful Mexican mashed potato. You won't be disappointed. Everyone at... More

This is a very pleasant and clean dining room and while very large it feels smaller as it is broken up into several smaller dining areas. The menu is vast and it might take you awhile to make up your mind. The portions are large and tasty and presented very nicely on very hot plates. They offer a nice selection... More

I visited this Abuelo's twice this year, and had excellent meals each time. Service is good, and there are plenty of good options to choose from. We had two people in our party of 8 get the Grande platter, and neither could finish it. Try the mexican potatoes instead of the usual rice for a change of pace - they... More
