Of course, this can lead to over-doing it since we want to get our fill of it in before we leave. This last trip, we actually went to the same place a couple of times. It was a chain restaurant out there, but our experience was so good... we wanted to go back for another meal there.
During both visits to Abuelo's, we had very attentive service and everything came out as described either in the menu or by the knowledgeable and helpful servers.
After having our first server mention an appetizer that they serve flaming, we made sure to order it when we returned... the Queso Flameado Supremo.
You can kind of see the flames on it in the picture. A fun way to be served and it was a cheesey delight. Served with warmed flour tortillas, there wasn't a speck of it left when they cleared it from the table.
We also ordered their Traditinal Nachos.
Everyone was really pleased with their main dishes. I'm only going to share a couple of them here as this post would go on forever if I had taken photos and described everything our party of 8 enjoyed that night!
My Husband ordered The Grande which was a pretty all-encompassing combination platter.
I'm a big enchilada fan, so I opted to order a platter with 2 different enchiladas so I could sample different flavors.
The options given with these platters were rice and beans or mashed potatoes with poblano chiles. I was a bit hesitant to order the potatoes until the server said that they are her most favorite thing in the world. Not spicy - in spite of the chiles - and so creamy... she was right! I am intrigued by them and may have to play around with creating my own version at home. They were that good!
If you are lucky enough to live near an Abuelo's or happen to travel to where one is located... I would make it a point to dine there. We had 2 very good experiences there... the services was attentive and the food was consistently delicious.
