Not sure about the less than good/great reviews. Sure, the restaurant is large, but the food belies the space. The chef has interpreted Mexican without sacrificing taste. The Chili relleno is not traditional, but should not be missed, nor should the tacos. Please enjoy Abuelo’s, you will not be disappointed!

This has always been one of my favorite restaurants however, for the past year or so, service/food at lunch and dinner have been consistently hit or miss. Fortunately, the chips and salsa are always on point! ;)

Lunch menu is available all day for seniors and chips and salsa are excellent. The queso and creamed spinach are great with the thin chips. The chicken and the carnas enchiladas are full of meat and are great with the papas. Very large and busy most of the time. We tru to eat at Abuelos several times a month.

Always great food but today’s service was extremely poor. Had to get another waitress to refill our drinks twice. Ordered sopapillas and they were brought out with no plates or silver ware to eat them with. By the time we did get silverware and plates, the sopapillas were cold. Not a good visit.

This place is very loud and not a good place to come with friends or family if you want to hear your conversation. The food is good.
