Upscale looking place, however food was very disappointing. Food was over cooked. Did not taste fresh or authentic. Service was ok but server did not know the menu. It was a waste of hard earned money.

We've been to Abuelo's a few times in Roanoke and a few others. It is always excellent. The salsas are interesting - try mixing the green with your choice of red. After this, the portions are huge, and the combinations in dinners are all excellent. Our server was superb this time - I ordered a few enchiladas and she pointed... More

What a pleasant surprise. Just a great dinner with all the homemade sauces and tortillas. Best mexican food we have ever had. Service was equally fantastic. Highly recommend.

We visit the ROANOKE area several times a year on business and always stop at Abuelos. This visit was no surprise with great service and amazing food. Server was outstanding. Love the 3 salsa choices for the never ending chips. Can't say enough good things about Abuelos.

They are too thin to dip and would break when you dip them. Since we were sharing appetizers I did not want to eat something... More

One of the better restaurants here in Roanoke Virginia to alejandros is a lot better it's got a greater salsa bar and it offers quick-service very caring people in the restaurant and they absolutely right they always have sports on TVs that are really good for Spanish people in respect of futball
