This was our first visit to Abuelo's and never heard anything particularly bad about this place. I tried the fish and shrimp taco. It was over rated and not worth the price. You get a better deal for half the price and tastier meal at...More

Great Mexican food. Have eaten here many times and never been disappointed. Little more pricey and upscale than most Mexican restaurants but worth it.

Beautiful place, nice staff, great chips, salsa, and guacamole. I thought the food was overpriced for what you get. Mine was good, but nothing special. The cost for 2 adults and 2 children was $50+.

This restaurant never disappoints. No matter what we order, it is always cooked perfectly and tastes AMAZING. We drive an hour to come here and it's definitely worth it. All time favorite Mexican restaurant.
