Abuelo’s brings you a singular dining experience that combines authentic standards with the rich, subtle flavors of coastal and interior Mexican cuisine that are often overlooked at more traditional cantina-style eateries.

Guests who prefer traditional Mexican fare will enjoy the impressive selection of wood-grilled fajitas, enchiladas, chiles rellenos, quesadillas, chimichangas and tamales. Every dish is made to order from scratch, using only the freshest premium ingredients. You’ll find a vast, colorful array of fresh vegetables in the side dishes, salad creations, fresh-made salsas and sauces. Make sure to save room for one of the award-winning desserts! Escape to the courtyard under our beautiful sky, enjoy our inspired surroundings and savor the exceptional food and drink that is Abuelo’s signature.

Since opening our first restaurant in 1989, we have been passionate about bringing The Flavor of Mexico into everything we do.
