All 4 of us in the party enjoyed a very good lunch. Food quality and service were very good. Quick service by staff and kitchen.

Friendly service at the bar. Not your usual rough seating but comfy with ample room with granite counters. Chips light and tasty arrived with three salsa samples (mild, sweet green and snappy). Food was very good, not the best Mexican I have had, but solidly in the middle and priced reasonably. Seemed busy so I suspect the locals find this... More

I dined at this restaurant on a trip to visit family and I was appalled at the level of rudeness that this bartender portrayed. When we ask for our drink, it was running over sloppy on the side, spilled and didn't even offer us a napkin. He kept calling me and my friend "baby, sweetheart" as this was going to... More

If you are looking for authentic cuisine, this is not it. The restaurant totes being the "Mexican food Embassy"... not exactly. If you are in to chain-type foods with excessive sauces, then this is it. In entering the restaurant it had the feel of across between an Atlantic City Hotel and Chili's. It was pretty confusing. I was a bit... More

Atmosphere is descent. ordered fajitas & Tilapia Veracruz. Fajitas were average, Tilapia was ok but unlike the menu's description, only came with one and a half scallop (no joking) & 2 shrimps. Very disappointing.

Me and my husband decided to try the restaurant. He wanted to sit at the bar. We barely found a spot to sit due to dirty dishes being every where from previous customers. I thought maybe their really busy. However after we ate, we saw the bartender print our check and put it in a dirty glass from a previous... More

Frankly we were first drawn into Abuelo’s because we were once again given a 20 minute wait for the Olive Garden next door! But we were very happy to visit! The signature drinks were reasonably priced, and plentiful, but we stuck with the Mexican beer! The ambiance of this place is very nice, like a Mexican coutrtyard. Plenty of chips... More

Nice atmosphere, food was good. Service was slow, I did receive a wine glass with a chip in it, but management was very nice and handled it in a very professional and satisfactory manner. I would go back!

Being born and raised in Texas, I love Tex-Mex and it is hard to find good Tex-Mex outside of Texas. My wife and I stumbled in here one night and loved it! On about my 10th visit I asked them where they were based and they told me Lubbock, TX. Well, that explained it! Very good enchiladas. Thin tortilla chips... More

On a trip through Cleveland, Ohio, we found this restaurant and decided to have lunch here. We arrived around 1:30 p.m. and there were only a few people in the restaurant including two groups who were having a business lunch. We were quickly seated and our server took our drink order immediately. She brought us some chips and salsa which... More
