The decor is absolutely beautiful. While crowded, the noise level was acceptable. We could carry on a conversation at our table with no problem. The chips and salsa were great and so were all of our meals.. our waitress,Alyssa, was outstanding and by far the BEST service we have ever had in Arizona.

My husband loved the green salsa! He had the shrimp fajitas and I had the durango (?) Burrito. They were both excellent. The service was great too!

Would have thought this was an upscale Italian eatery at first. Wonderfully authentic dishes and great happy hour offerings. Try the 3 dips.

When we want something more than "border-style" Mexican food, we always pick Abuelo's! Their menu is more contemporary, more "gourmet".

I have lived in Arizona now for 2 years and have to say, this is the best Mexican restaurant I have been to. The service is great, the food is excellent. Their green salsa is amazing. This is my new go to and never disappointed.

Let's talk Mi Abelo's Manjar. So friggin good, like next level best thing I've eaten at a Mexican restaurant ever. I want to try something else but I love this too much. The chile con carne and eggs are what makes this meal.

The title of my review says it all!! As this was a first time visit to this restaurant on the recommendation of friends, you can never be sure what to expect. Delighted to say it exceeded any preconceived expectations. The 20 minute wait was worth it. Our server was very attentive and knowledgeable. The Quesadilla al Horno arrived piping hot,... More

We continue to patronize Abuelo's because of the excellent choices, staff, atmosphere and mostly their continuity. We recently took visiting family from Ireland. They loved it! This is a great compliment to Abuelo's as they are world travelers.
