We were happy to find this very pretty restaurant, and to find that it was a cut above the usual that surround a mall. The interior was charming, service was good, and the food flavor filled and well presented. Great value also.

Business trip and Abuelo's looked better than the hotel restaurant. Friendly service though the hostess was slow in seating me, though there was no one waiting. More concerned with crossing off lists than getting me a seat. Once seated I was taken good care of...More

First time at this location. Love the chain and this stop was no exception. Abuelo's never disappoints. The chain has amazing consistency from one location to another. New menu just came out with great dishes!

I do not recommend the chicken tacos, chicken burritos or the guacamole (it's mixed with sour cream?) The drink specials are decent and the shrimp cocktail is ok. Very clean! Someone I was with said the beef tacos were pretty good.

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.
