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.

Fiesta Mariachi restuarants are the best place in town for authentic and inexpensive Mexican food. We have never had any problems with the service, even for carry out. We have a young child who can't sit still for long. The food is always, quick, hot and tasty. They have the best tacos and very tasty burritos. A must-have is the cheese dip appetizer. This is a creamy white cheese that is a bit spicy but fantastic on the warm chips! Although I don't get them often, I also recommend the margaritas.
I first went to Cuco's shortly after it opened and when I stepped inside the aroma hit me and I felt I was in Mexico. I go there once or twice a week, and prior to "finding" this great Mexican restaurant I would go to one of the others in Columbus, but never found one that would draw me back as Cuco's has. You can really feel relaxed and enjoy yourself and the staff there will make you feel at home.
