We had a group of about 10 people on a Thursday and they were able to support us. I had the frozen Margarita/Sangria drink. That was heavenly on a hot day! Our server was brilliant and attentive. We asked questions and described options without knowing...More

The meals are authentic and cooked with fresh ingredients. The wait staff was attentive but not overreaching. I had two burritos with fresh rice and refried beans. It came piping hot and was very flavorful without being over spiced. The chips came with three kinds...More

Pretty good food, Steak Chimichanga is awesome. Salsa isn't as authentic as I'd prefer. Beautiful space and clean.

We needed a great meal after a long day at a symposium. Abuelo's did not disappoint. The food was good and service great. We had a great time decompressing without alcohol.

I really wish we had chosen an "authentic" Mexican restaurant. The customer service or lack there of left much to be desired. I ordered Fajita Tacos and much to my dismay there was nothing fajita about them. Some bland chopped meat in a tortilla with...More

Description
Real Mexican food is a feast for the senses. From colorful peppers to the sounds of sizzling fajitas all the way to that incredible flavor. Each mouthful is just as much a result of the freshest ingredients as it is a result of the chef's expertise. Abuelo's offers diners the opportunity to experience real Mexican food, combining authentic, made from scratch classic dishes with the rich, subtle flavors of coastal and interior Mexican cuisine. Our executive Chef Luis Sanchez has spent decades perfecting our menu, and we boast a wide selection of wood-grilled fajitas, enchiladas, tacos, chile rellenos or Abuelo's unique House Specialties (depending on your location). To compliment your meal, our expert bartenders are masters at crafting signature favorites, including a wide variety of margaritas and swirls. Our new extended Happy Hour includes Sunday 11 am - 6 pm and Saturday 11 am - 6 pm. We continue to include great offerings M-F 3pm - 7 pm though! Catering is also an option, our staff are adept at delivering a professional, hassle-free and delicious meal. Whatever the occasion, we'll stop at nothing to make your time at Abuelo's a memorable dining experience.
