This place was recommended by the hotel staff and it was on point. The food is reasonably priced and you get more than enough. The queso dip is like nothing I have ever had before. You can’t go wrong eating here!

Excellent food. great service.p I would go there again. prices are little high though but that's probably the only thing that's bad. Mexican and American food is a great idea.

The waitress was very attentive. Queso was very good. I ordered the ground beef nachos and they tasted terrible. Server was kind and took them off my bill without me even asking.

Each mouthful is just as much a result of the freshest ingredients as it is a result of the chef's expertise. Abuelo's offers diners the opportunity to experience real Mexican food, combining authentic, made from scratch classic dishes with the rich, subtle flavors of coastal and interior Mexican cuisine. Our executive Chef Luis Sanchez has spent decades perfecting our menu, and we boast a wide selection of wood-grilled fajitas, enchiladas, tacos, chile rellenos or Abuelo's unique House Specialties (depending on your location). To compliment your meal, our expert bartenders are masters at crafting signature favorites, including a wide variety of margaritas and swirls. Whatever the occasion, we'll stop at nothing to make your time at Abuelo's a memorable dining experience.
