Went here with some friends. The food was good and the service was great. The happy hour deals were very good. I will definitely go back.

I was really impressed by Abuelo's. The decor is very nice but has a casual feel. There is beautiful paintings and statues inside as well. The service was excellent, friendly and fast. They offered three different kinds of salsa, one with a fruity pineapple taste which was really good. I enjoyed the half plate of nachos which is almost enough... More

Enjoyable food and good atmosphere. Will likely eat here again. The salsa they give you is pretty on point too

I'll start by saying we are huge fans of Abuelos. Visiting the Dayton location made the 11th different location we've been to, from Kissimmee FL to Peoria AZ to Madison WI. Our meal at Dayton probably surpassed all others. The one thing you can usually count on with this chain is a balance of quality from one location to the... More

Have dined here several times and it does not disappoint. Indeed, it is a chain restaurant, but it has a very nice atmosphere. Professionally designed, of course, to put you in the south-of-the-border mood. So you already know when you go here, it is a calculated thing to transport you to old Me-hi-co while charging you top dollar for tortillas.... More

We appreciate you taking the time to leave us a review. Abuelo's is inspired by open-air courtyards you can find in Mexico, our food is authentic, made-from-scratch Tex-Mex and we are very glad to hear that you noticed our attention to detail and that you enjoy dining with us! We look forward to seeing you again soon! Best regards, Ben... More

Abuelos has above average Mexican food. The margaritas are also better than most places around the area. If you want good margaritas, as well as great food, this is your place.

Wonderful! This menu has more than the typical Mexican or TexMex restaurant. I had pork medallions wrapped in bacon. Not sure if this is really Mexican, but it was cooked with Mexican seasonings and sides. Upscale. Great bar. Too full for dessert, but dessert menu looked good.

When you enter, it feels a little more formal than most Mexican restaurants, and the food menu is somewhat different as well.

We went out with a large group. I appreciate the server for her patience. However she did seem bothered by us being there. When it came time to order, my husband and I typically choose low carb options. And there wasn't too much to choose from. Also, the portion sizes are very small for the price! We spent a decent...
