I am never disappointed at Abuelos. The food is always good with the best tortilla chips served hot and thin with three dipping salsas. If in the area stop in.

We’ve always liked Abuelos. The dining areas are beautiful and food usually great. We arrived at 1230 on a Sunday and were quickly seated. Our waitress was wonderful, friendly and attentive. However several things went downhill from there. We waited probably 45 minutes for our...More

The first time we ate here, we really liked it. Second time, not so much. Enchiladas had no flavor and perhaps had been frozen. One plus is that they serve 2 kinds of salsa with the chips.

Great decor makes this a relaxing experience. My husband had the beef fajitas while I had the chicken. Both had great flavor and were served sizzling on the plate. Their margaritas are good, especially during happy hour! Tip: they do call ahead for seating.

A nice mix of healthy and not so Mexican food. The addition of the rotisserie grill was great, some of the best chicken around. This location has a nice outdoor patio too.

Very pretty restaurant. We have always liked the beautiful courtyard. We like the thin chips. Chips are served with three types of salsa. The mild salsa had little flavor, tomatillo salsa was a little sweet and the spicy was our favorite. The queso was very...More

Went for Father's Day and it wasn't horribly crowded. The wait staff was excellent and kept our chips and salsa full. The menu was large and the food good and plentiful.

Able loss takes Mexican food to a higher level than the sometimes tiring TexMex. The menu offers a different perspective and it's superb. The service and atmosphere are both a giant step above the norm.
