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.

Avocado cream appetizer dip is very good. Wife and I usually split the Grande meal: we get four enchiladas, one taco, one tamale, refried beans and rice. We always leave full.

Enjoyed Fathers Day with the family and grandchildren. Every one enjoyed their dinner and the service was excellent. Our teenagers are picky eaters and each have their likes and dislikes, but they all enjoy a well prepared meal. The waiter did a wonderful job of getting each what they wanted and they way they wanted it. I had the El Grande which was of course more than I could eat, but the left over made a nice second lunch the next day.
Looking forward until the next family outing at Abuelos.

Went there for dinner with my father and stepmother; the hostess took the time to wipe down my father's walker (as it was raining and we'd gotten wet coming inside). The food was amazing and plentiful! Sergio, the waiter, noticed that I'd brought a birthday card for my dad - and brought him flan. A truly touching display of caring on the part of the staff.

Abuelo's provides a nice atmosphere for a tasty Mexican food meal. There is a wide selection of entrees to choose from and we really enjoyed our choice of Chicken Chimichangas. We received attentive service and our meals were served piping hot - and without delay. The portions were generous and the prices were fair. All in all, a nice choice for Mexican food in the Lakeland area.
