I've been to Abuelo's in several different cities so my expectations were high. I was not disappointed!

Abuelo's has very reasonable lunch prices on Sunday with gluten free options. Tried the pork medallion special and was pleasantly surprised how good it was. Chips & salsa outstanding.

This is high quality Mexican food, not a taco stand. We have had a good time whenever we have gone here.

First off, the Chile con queso is cloying. I don't know why it would be so rich and sweet. I ordered the barramundi which was cooked beautifully. However, it was drowned in a sauce which killed the flavor of the fish for the most part....More

This place serves good Tex Mex food. Simple, straightforward. Importantly for us, they offered gluten free and vegetarian options. Our server was knowledgeable about gluten free options, even though they weren't detailed on the mebu

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. Whatever the occasion, we'll stop at nothing to make your time at Abuelo's a memorable dining experience.
