After hearing so much about this place we along with other couples went to Abuelos and although the drinks were good, I was not impressed with the food. Founded to be lacking in the taste department and a bit overpriced:(

Stopped in for happy hour before attending a ball game at the Peoria Sports Complex. Arrived early enough to be seated in the bar/happy hour area. Decent selection and prices. Waitress was great, very nice and efficient! Good nachos and tacos.

Translation: Abuelo's / Grandfather The spices are more on the Tex side of things. The recipes are unique. Food is tasty, there are long lines as a rule. Good idea to show up before dinner rush. Atmosphere very nice. Dress is upper side / country club casual.

My husband and I have been going to Abuelo's restaurant for special occasions for 3 years now and not once have we had a bad meal or poor service. We both love Mexican food, but Abuelo chefs take the dishes up a notch. The restaurant is also very close to the stadium, the Arrowhead Mall and several large shopping areas.... More

The chips were paper thin and crisp. The tropical salsa , one of three served with the chips, had a subtle sweet flavor my... More

They have such a tasty happy hour. It's until 7pm! Half price appetizers and $1.99 margaritas! The appetizers are big enough to share and you don't need dinner it's so filling. We have the nachos and mini chimi's and were stuffed!

Were told to eat here by a couple friends back home. This place was tasty, close to the stadium. Loved the salsa, and the encniladas were quite good as well. Would definitely eat here again if we return.

We have eaten at this establishment several times and we have never been disappointed. Food is great and stop in for "happy hour" as they also have a mini menu and the drinks are fairly priced.
