I had steak tacos. 3 large tacos with beans and rice. A lot of food and plenty to take home. My friend always gets the enchiladas, spinach and cream sauce. No other place has anything like them. Chips and salsa served on the table also. The green salsa is a very sweet tomatillos salsa. Restaurant is very nice for a... More

My family of 2-6 visit at least once a week. Today was my husband, older son and me. Seated right away although the patio area was closed even though it was 54 degrees. My husband loves the outside area and wasn't happy it wasn't open. We had a nice table inside, was greeted quickly and our water was delivered. Server... More

Had dinner here on a Friday night. Was very busy but it didn't take long to get seated. The food was very good and the service was great. Will be eating here again.

Business lunch with a supplier... Fortunately I wasn't paying. The food is on par with other Mexican/Southwestern American restaurants in the Columbus area but at a higher price. Paying for location. Pros: Greeted warmly at the door and seated promptly. Wait-staff efficient and friendly.

We visited on a Friday evening at supper time. Surprisingly we didn't have to wait too long. Whe we got to the table there were plenty of chips and three sauces to try. Our young waitress was very good at answering our questions, giving guidance or suggestions about menu options. She suggested asking the chef about one of our questions... More

We've been going to Abuelo's for over 10 years now. Their food is excellent, servers are always friendly and knowledgeable about the menu and this restaurant is very very amenable to substitutions and they don't charge extra for that. I ordered a salad (hold meat, Chile, queso and shredded cheese) and added black beans and cilantro lime rice instead. No... More

One of my favorite Mexican restaurants in Columbus. I ordered the fajita chimichanga and it was delicious. Try any of their chip dips too. You won't be disappointed!

Description
Real Mexican food is a feast for the senses. From colorful peppers to the sounds of sizzling fajitas all the way to that incredible flavor. 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. Our new extended Happy Hour includes Sunday 11 am - 6 pm and Saturday 11 am - 6 pm. We continue to include great offerings M-F 3pm - 7 pm though! Catering is also an option, our staff are adept at delivering a professional, hassle-free and delicious meal. Whatever the occasion, we'll stop at nothing to make your time at Abuelo's a memorable dining experience.
