Good meal. The chips and salsa are provided and were very tasty. We also ordered firecracker shrimp as an appetizer. Good, not great. My wife had a nice appetizer for her meal. I had a large combination plate of different enchiladas. We had two beers as well. The staff was very friendly. All in all, after tip, it was $55.... More

After reading positive reviews we decided to try this place out but it was very disappointing. The food was less than average. The enchiladas, while there were several options, were plain. Just some chicken rolled in a tasteless wrap with sauce on top. The refried beans tasted like anything you would buy off the shelf at a grocery store. Service... More

This was my first time at Abuelos. I am a huge fan of Mexican food. This place was VERY americanized and you could tell it was a chain restaurant just by tasting the food. not authentic Mexican at all. The service was amazing but the food was some of the worst I've had. The chicken for fajitas came out grey... More

We eat here every year when we attend an annual meeting. It's one of our favorite places for Mexican food. The service is very good and the margaritas and food are always good. Try one of the grand margaritas. The cheese enchiladas are excellent. Not crazy about the tamales because of the thick breading.

We were visiting my sister and brother-in-law, and their family, and they love this restaurant (the Chandler branch of a chain), so perhaps our experience on our one evening here is the outlier. The chips were thin and broke off easily and none of the three salsas had much flavor, which was disappointing because often that's the best part of... More

Very attentive staff - we never went without a full glass, salsa, and chips while waiting. The build your own enchiladas feature was great fun! We will have to go back to try other options.

On Tuesday 1/03/2017, we stopped into our favorite "Mexican" restaurant for lunch. The reason why I used " " is Mexican restaurants in AZ are Americanized. Abuelo's is one of the best as we dine here often. We arrived before Noon and ordered Guac Appetizer and two orders of Cile Rellenos + soft drinks as it was early in the... More

Stopped by for lunch while in Chandler for business. The service was attentive and the food was excellent. A nice quantity of chips and three different salsas came out very quickly. I enjoyed the shrimp cocktail that had a nice shrimp briney-ness to it and lots of delicious chunky veggies with creamy avocado. I also had the Reynosa salad which... More
