Since my wife doesn't enjoy Mexican food and was busy today, I treated myself. Huge portions, I had the Grande Burrito. Server was very attentive and manager came over to question my coupon, he remembered quickly when I told him. Great experience and awesome fresh chips!

The family took me here for my Birthday. I had three enchiladas with a very delicious green sauce. The service was good and all enjoyed the quality of the food. The price is on the high side of what we normal spend but it was good.

I always walk away from Abuellos as a satisfied customer. To the purist this is not authentic Mexican, but you know, I've visited Mexico several times and I prefer the Americanized version. This place is a level above the run of the mill Mexican restaurants that are found throughout America. Their ingredients are fresh, portion sizes are good for your... More

The food was very good. The best part are the different dips. The servings are very small for the price.

I gave this place a very positive review the last time. Unfortunately, there's an update since then! We were here on Friday, December 30, 2016 around 9:25 PM. Our waitress was very good. She was wonderful! The food, however, was disappointing for both my wife and myself. Her food looked like someone had poured canned liquid cheese over it. My... More

20 of us ate here and enjoyed a lot of good appetizers, drinks and food. The shaken margaritas were a big hit. Our server (sorry didn't get his name, but lots of great tattoos) was amazing. He was running all night keeping us refilled.
