Service was friendly, the food came out fast, and it was delicious. What more can you ask from a local restaurant.

Saturday night was not busy. Speedy service and good food. Excellent value for money. Try the Abel stew it is great. Probably the best value in Grayslake.

Abel's has a great varied menu. The food is really good. Great margaritas. A homey bar to hangout at. The Mexican food is really delicious.

I am loving this little find in Grayslake. I fell upon this place looking for an outdoor eatery to meet at with friends. Do not let their curb appeal influence your choice of dining here. We stepped in and were immediately greeted with a smile...More
