The Flavor of Mexico

Regular Hours

General Info:
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!

I took advantage of an unseaso...

I took advantage of an unseasonably warm November day by having lunch on Abuela's patio.

After munching on the obligatory Mexican chips and salsa, I ordered the Tilapia Veracruz ($10). The dish consisted of sauteed tilapia, scallops and shrimp; tomatoes, roasted poblano pepper and olives. The dish also came with vegetables and cilantro rice. The meal was well seasoned (not too spicy) and well cooked (veggies had crunch).

With the 70-degree weather, the patio was a delightful lunch spot, and I noticed they also have ceiling heaters for cooler weather. On balance, Abuelo's is a nice, inexpensive dining spot.

Where the wild things are

I went one Thursday night, which happened to be at the same time as their new happy so aptly named Thirsty Thursday. As I was enjoying my margarita and, what looked like mini burritos, I took a look around the bar and counted 3 people wearing sweat pants. I hadn't been in quite some time, at least a year and a half, and was under the impression that this was supposed to be a finer dining restaurant. Clearly my impression was wrong! I returned the next week on Saturday night to test my theory, thinking that it was merely the happy hour that had brought out so many ""relaxed"" people, but was met with the unfortunate realization that indeed sweat pants was a common occurence in this restaurant. Personally I believe dining out, especially at place whose reputation for the upscale entertainment experience such as Easton, should be, well, upscale meaning that establishments should set certain standards for their customers in order to maintain a higher class appearance. Frankly I would more likely expect to meet any of my fellow diners at some place like Applebees or TGI Fridays than at Easton, but Abuelo's seems to attract and cater to diners, whose idea of fine dining is scarfing down piles of food covered with mounds of sour cream and cheese. While the food is good for that occasional indulgence, considering the company I would be forced to endure I might think twice about letting myself indulge, elect to save a buck, and make my own tacos at home. Going to Abuelos is like going to a circus, turn out the lights and the freaks come out!

Fake Mexican food...

Abuelo's is a big, corporate owned food factory with little regard for authenticity. Abuelo's is to Mexican food what Brio's is to Italian. The food is bland and what might be called 'Americanized'. If you want real Mexican food, go to a Mexican owned and operated restaurant. If you want fake food, in nice here.


Worth a trip there to eat

Great food. Always hot and well prepared. Their mashed potatoes are the best in Columbus. Their stuffed chicken with cheese sauce is fantastic.

High price for mexican

I ate at this restaurant one time and that will be the last. The prices are too high for what you can get at MUCH BETTER restaurants. Everything tasted the same...spicy.

Depends on your definition of Mexican

I having eaten here twice. Once with a group of 6 and once by myself. The food is good but does not meet my definition of true Mexican. When compared to Mexican resturants run by Mexican immigrants with Mexican patrons, the food at Abuelo's just comes across to ""Americanized"". The mid-westerners in our group loved it though. The portions are large. The salsa that is served with the chips is good, but when I asked for salsa verde they did not have any. And this is a Mexican resturant? I recommend the fajitas. I do not recommend the mixed drinks. However, they offer beer Michelada style. The service is hit or miss though like a lot of places. The server for our group was marginal at best. When I visited by myself, the waitress was excellent. Authenticity not withstanding, I would return again just for the beer.

Great Service, Great Price

Took my wife there for her birthday and while the wait was long, and the bar was full, a server who passed us grabbed a chair for her to sit on while we waited. The service was a little above average, but the good was excellent. The value was even better. My wife loves the sangria and misses it now that she's pregnant. Her first request after Valentine's Day will be a sangria for sure. Highly recommend.

Where is the tequila???

I love Mexican food. The bacon-wrapped shrimp were very good. The $18 pitcher of margaritas was not. A friend and I split a pitcher and there was no liquor in it. None. Not even the slightest buzz. We were charged $18 for a pitcher of frozen lime sugar water. The food was pretty good. The salsa for the chips was good. However, I like my margaritas with my Mexican food so therefore I would not return to this Mexican restaurant. Oh, and if you want outdoor seating they have it. But you are on the side of the building facing a huge wall, a parking garage, and an alley with potentially loud traffic 10 feet away.

Now THAT'S a margarita!

Just when I was about to give up on a good margarita in Columbus, I tried Abuelo's. Not only can they do a classic margarita on the rocks right, but they have a variety of other specialty ones to choose from. My favorite of the moment is ""The Don."" Highly recommended. The food is great too - though the last couple of trips, the salsa has been much saltier than usual, anyone else notice? Get the queso dip instead, it's excellent!
