While shopping I stopped for a quick lunch. I was seated and served promptly. The food was tasty, server attentive, and self serve check out was handy.

Though it might not be the finest Mexican it has assets. I've had their seafood enchilada dish and it was very skimpy on the seafood. The mushroom appetizer is good. Their shrimp guacamole appetizer was disappointing. The 22 oz IPA on tap was very nice. The shrimp and steak dinner was good with gigantic shrimp. We like their ipad-type entertainment... More

My husband and I had a rare opportunity to grab an early dinner without kids. We arrived at 4 pm but when we still didn't have our food over an hour later we opted to leave. The chips and salsa are great though.

I have only been here once but was totally impressed. Service was a little off but for the most part good. Food was Delicious and the Green Salsa is to die for. I even bought some to take home. Food was very good

My husband and I had dinner here this evening. We live close by and we eat here often. It's one of our favorite places. We've always had excellent food here but the last couple of times including this evening the service has been slow. We arrived about 5 or 5:30 this evening and it wasn't crowded yet and it took...

Beautiful place without awesome food to go with it. Management is everything. Evidently it doesn't mean enough to have great reviews ;(

Was in town on business and a colleague who knows the area said she was taking us to a mexican restaurant. I was really surprised to arrive and find this huge very nice spot with amazing food and service. I definitely recommend Abuelo's.

This restaurant looks so nice when you walk in but it is quickly forgotten by the slow service and awful food. It could be a really great restaurant with some improvement but I will not be going back. I have eaten here a few times and every time it is the same. Bad service and bad food. We ordered queso...

Entering the restaurant, I was impressed with what I was seeing. The place has a feel of an upscale Mexican restaurant. The menu showed some appealing entrees that are not on your typical Mexican restaurant. I was looking forward to ordering something different than the usual enchilada, rice and beans fare. My wife ordered the stacked enchiladas (Mi Abuelo's Manjar)... More

Had a biz lunch this week. Lovely day ate on the patio. Good service. Ordered the Ahi Tuna appetizer - very nicely done. Spicy sauce on the side and nice mango salsa and greens. Just perfect. My colleagues had fajitas and they looked good too. Want to go back and try their hand shaken margaritas!
