Abuelo's checks all the boxes for an excellent Mexican restaurant. Great chef-prepared food choices, great service from attentive staff, and on-line coupons provided for birthday celebrations and anniversaries. Best of class by far.

The food is excellent, presented well, staff attentive, and margarita's tasty! The dining room can accommodate several parties and their is additional seating in the bar area. There is limited viewing to the outdoors, but the scenes inside are very calming.

I'd have to agree with HOODSY129 and say that you would need to contact the manager to make those arrangements, I am sure that they would do their best to accommodate your large party.
