The best Mexican restaurant in town. The food is good quality and the price is mid range. The service has always been good. There is plenty of parking. The atmosphere inside is festive and clean. Great location for a large group and they are accommodating.

my sister and I were on our way through back from Hot Springs and stopped in. I had the sea bass and it was absolutely delish. The chips and dips were very tasty and the service was great. I will go back.

If you are looking for Tex-Mex then Abuelos is the place to go. If you want what passes for Mexican food in most of the country then this isn't it. On your first trip to Abuelos you should order "Los Mejores de la Casa" which basically means the Best of the House. I am not a fan of their fajitas... More

We love Abuelo's! It's something different. I love the steak medallions. Our waitress was also amazing. Wish I could remember her name but she was very friendly and kept our tea filled which important with us. We will be back!

Abuelos is from San Antonio, so the food is not the run of the mill Mexican found all over Memphis. The restaurant doesn't try to fake you into believing it's real Mexican food, rather it's a mixed offering of Tex mex, Baja Cally and southwestern style food. Real tamales, fresh enchiladas, and even Tex mex mashed potatoes! The Fajitas are... More

We LOVED the steak and chicken nachos - $5 each on the happy hour menu. The sangria and margarita "swirl" e salt on the rim was yummy! The three salsa's were wonderful, too. We really liked the female bar tender, too.

We had been to this restaurant once before and ate there. Husband ordered carnitas tacos but we were amazed at how small the amount of meat they put in it!! Decided to give them another chance and ordered to go. Got the carnitas tacos for the hubby again but what a major difference. The 5acos were stuffed with so much... More

Came during happy hour, sat in the bar and ordered food and drinks off the happy hour menu. Great salsa, chips and queso! Drinks were delicious, service was very friendly and the food was delicious!

The lady that is supposed to greet you at the front had no personality what so ever! Why would this be the person to set the mood for my dinning experience? My waitress was nice. I ordered the chicken fajitas. the onions were cooked but the raw peppers were placed on top of them and not cooked at all. The... More
