Have dined here several times and it does not disappoint. Indeed, it is a chain restaurant, but it has a very nice atmosphere. Professionally designed, of course, to put you in the south-of-the-border mood. So you already know when you go here, it is a calculated thing to transport you to old Me-hi-co while charging you top dollar for tortillas.... More

Abuelos has above average Mexican food. The margaritas are also better than most places around the area. If you want good margaritas, as well as great food, this is your place.

Wonderful! This menu has more than the typical Mexican or TexMex restaurant. I had pork medallions wrapped in bacon. Not sure if this is really Mexican, but it was cooked with Mexican seasonings and sides. Upscale. Great bar. Too full for dessert, but dessert menu looked good.

When you enter, it feels a little more formal than most Mexican restaurants, and the food menu is somewhat different as well.

We went out with a large group. I appreciate the server for her patience. However she did seem bothered by us being there. When it came time to order, my husband and I typically choose low carb options. And there wasn't too much to choose from. Also, the portion sizes are very small for the price! We spent a decent...

I was in Beavercreek, Ohio, near Fairfield Commons Mall, when I was dying for Mexican Food. The Abuelo's Mexican Embassy Restaurant caught my attention because it's architecture was so imposing and beautiful. Inside was really beautiful. Although a chain, the food there is from authentic Mexican family recipes and all the food is made fresh from scratch. The Guacamole is... More

My g/f and I went there Saturday evening, it wasn't crowded, got seated right away. First off it was cold inside. It was 70 degrees outside, not a heatwave, but it was a lot colder inside. It's a good thing we usually have a sweater or jacket with us when we go out, they were needed! Next, our server gave... More

This restaurant is another favorite of mine when I travel to WPAFB. The food, service and atmosphere are terrific. I always eat way to much here and dinner is always an exceptional value. On my last visit I had the Matamoros for $12.99 and it was excellent. I always add extra heat so I can wash it down with a... More

One thing about Abuelos is you can always count on the entree being hot when served, no in terms of seasoning but temperature. Our favorite is the zucchini...chicken. Absolutely outstanding. Servers are always courteous, friendly and efficient.
