“Dinner Experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2013

We had dinner yesterday at the Restaurant for the first time. The food was very good especially the delicious chicken dishes. The plates were very hot as was the food and served in a timely manner . The ambiance was very appealing and food reasonably priced. Watch out for good coupons.

“Excellent food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 March 2013

Really great food. I think best Mexican in northside. You won't be disappointed. A step above most ordinary Mexican places. Nice atmosphere and great drinks

“Very beautiful restaurant. Very good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 February 2013 via mobile

The last time we went here we waited forever for a server to greet us and offer drinks. We were told they were in a meeting. However the people not inthe meeting just loitered around and didnt offer to get us started until I asked. Really poor. We have been there many times and usually the service is excellent. The thin chips and salsas are excellent as are the enchiladas. I dont like how they put cheese sauce on the taco salad because it wilts the greens. My son is vegetarian and they were so very kind to him. They gave him special sides that were meat free and yummy.

“Our new favorite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2012

We both love Mexican food, and this was a new chain for us but we decided to give it a try. We love it and will definitely be back! The service is great, the drinks and food portions generous, and you don't leave feeling hungry.

“Lunch, September 14, 2012”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2012

Our first visit to Abuelos in Carmel, IN. Good food, and good service. The chips were light and tasty with a variety of salsas. I had the lunchtime fajitas and was able to have both corn and flour tortillas. Tasty and enjoyable. My partner had enchiladas and the best thing was the avocado enchilada. I tried his and have to say going back would order a plateful of those, excellent. Our server was attentive and never left the glass empty. Portions were large. All in all a good visit and I will return.
