My family of five dined there tonight. We used to frequent Don Pablo's, but since they're now gone, we thought we'd try Abuelo's. While we were seated quickly, it took over 10 minutes for a server to come by to take drink orders. This would...More

I used to love coming to Abuelo's but lately this particular restaurant seems to be slipping. Service is slow and not as friendly as it used to be. Hope they step up their game soon because I miss the food.

This is a step up from the local Mexican style restaurants. Their quality of food is very good, the wait staff are always polite and accommodating. Food is delivered hot and tasty.
