The dip sampler is delicious with the cheese probably being my favorite. They have an extensive menu to suit any picky eaters! I recommend the creamed spinach and potato’s as your 2 sides as they are amazing!

Had the roughy with Veracruz sauce which was very good. Spicy sauce balanced well with fish, shrimp, vegetables and rice. The only downside was the desert which was store bought (not homemade) tres leches cake and had so much sugar in it that you couldn’t...More

We tried this place simply because of the Trip Advisor reviews and the proximity to our hotel, and we are so glad we did! First, the homemade chips and three salsa selections were excellent. I especially like the pineapple-ish salsa, which was a unique combination...More

Initially I wasn't going to patronize Abuelo's. When I arrived in town I asked a hotel clerk about the restaurant, I was told they didn't recommend it. However, I pulled it up online & saw the vegetarian menu...I was EXCITED!!! They actually published a menu...More

Over priced food. Good service. Huge menu. I had a burrito and was disappointed. I’ve had better at Big Burrito in Crown Point IN. I might go back but I’m not sure.

Abuelo‘s has been a great stop just about each time I’ve been in Merrillville. Usually I eat in the bar area with her at a booth or the bar. The food is always hot and tasty and the drinks, beer, are always good.

I eat at this restaurant with colleagues and customers recently. There was lots of choice from a very extensive menu. I went for tacos which were very nice. Service was attentive and efficient throughout. We could discuss business at the table we were allocated. The...More

I was here in November, the food was good but 25$ for a plate and over 6$ for a beer was a little too expensive
