Even though the waiter forgot it was my birthday, it was still good food & a good price. I had a birthday coupon for $10 off & it had been 4 years since we dined there. Much better then I remember

So haven't been here in awhile. I love the place. It isn't my husband's favorite. However this time I was a little disappointed in the restaurants upkeep. There was a funky smell in the entire place. The environment looked a little dirty. The hot sauce is always my favorite. I enjoy the green one. It has a delightful flavor. My... More

We enjoyed their food - but the waiter was VERY slow - and when we explained that we are senior citizens and really just wanted the mild salsa (not all the hot ones) he didn't seem to understand or respond - like he needed permission to do this - I finally went to the desk and explained and they got...

I have eaten at many of the Abuelos restaurants and love everyone of them. I love it when chain restaurants do such a good job with consistency. I can't help you with the menu as I always get the steak and bacon wrapped shrimp every time. It's simply one my favorite places to get fajitas. They are always cooked perfect,... More

After a little shopping at the mall my wife and I decided to grab a quick and easy dinner, it had been a while since we had been here and it will not take us as long to come back. The food and service were great and we will be back sooner than later!

Thought it could have been a bit fast goodish but was actually very surprised. The house frozen margarita was a good refreshing start. The salad and vegetables were all crisp and fresh. Fluffy fajitas with moist chicken, melt in the mouth beef and succulent prawns made for a great meal at a reasonable price for the two of us.

This place is a slightly upscale rather confusing Mexican restaurant. The atmosphere is nice, and contrary to a few reviews, the prices are not high, but they are no bargain, which is ok for me. I'm just confused by a few items on the menu. I appreciate adding meat or steak to a few enchiladas, but some of the dishes... More

Abuelo's is good food and good service in a pleasant and inviting atmosphere. Great menu! My only complaint is that the salsa is not to my liking.
