My wife and I have been married 28 plus years and one of our favorite things is dining out. We recently visited this location of Abuelo's and we agreed that it has been the best and favorite dining experience of our young marriage. From the service to the food this was as good as it gets! I recommend the medallions,... More

Wife and I come here often. Never a bad(or even average) meal. We always get too much but we live close so lunch for the next day is covered. Prices are reasonable and the service is warm and efficient. Our goto spot for Mexican, Try the fish. I probably shouldn't mention this but they are very flexible when it comes... More

Excellent every time. We've been here four times and ever time has been great. Tonight we had something new and it's our new favorite. The Pork Medallion Abrigado is awesome. The pork is perfectly prepared (moist) over a wood grill that gives it an super smokey flavor. But you really can't go wrong.

Have been there a few times and they never disappoint. Like the mix and match salsa tray. The Fajitas are great.

I saw that Abuelos had dedicated parking spots and a separate entrance for takeout, so I thought that it would be a great place to pick up dinner on a busy night. Wrong! I called at 4:45, and they told me the food would be ready in 15 minutes. I arrived at 5:05 (20 minutes after calling), and there was... More

A very comfortable restaurant with excellent service. Has a wide selection of southwest style offerings. I had one of the combination plates; soft shell tacos were excellent as was the rice and re-fried beans.

So many people raved about Abuelo's, maybe I was expecting too much. The menu looked really great, I ordered an enchilada "chose two" dish, one with a sour cream sauce and one with a cheese sauce. It was described so well, it sounded like it would be full of flavor, but didn't live up to the description. I never recognized... More

We had a very large group of 35 so always appreciate a restaurant that can not only accommodate us, but provide really good service. The food was delicious AND delivered to everyone at the same time, they kept the drinks coming & the service was top notch. Will be a must do next time we visit Carmel.

We came around 2 in the afternoon on July 4th. There was one large group at two tables and not a lot of other tables with patrons. The four of us were seated almost immediately. After twenty minutes or more I started looking around and finally someone came to take our drink order which did not come for maybe another... More
