From the moment you step through the elegant front doors, you can sense the restaurant’s true Mexican spirit – from the host’s graciousness to the elegant design and presentation of the menu. Abuelo’s, which blends the best of Mexico through art and fine dining, is famous for its creative Mexican cuisine and superior service.
Dining at Abuelo’s is similar to dining at upscale restaurants in Mexico City or other Mexican destinations. Instead of the stereotypical sombreros and piñatas, Abuelo’s features an artistic interior that fully complements its authentic Mexican menu. Background music is soft and contemporary, providing guests with a relaxing and enjoyable dining experience.
The Abuelo’s restaurants are designed as open-air Mexican courtyards to replicate the Mexican style of service that is perfect for business entertaining, as well as family celebrations or a romantic dinner for two. The Bricktown restaurant features three private dining areas that can be reserved for meetings or catered dinner functions. This restaurant can also accommodate large groups that may be in town for conventions or special events.
The statues throughout Abuelo’s are hand carved by artists in the villages around Guadalajara, Mexico. Since Abuelo’s is Spanish for "grandfather" or "respected elder statesman," many of the statues are representations of respected leaders and important figures in Mexican history. The restaurants’ walls are adorned with sweeping interpretations of murals painted in Mexico from 1920 to 1940 by famous Mexican muralists including Diego Rivera, Jose Clemente Orozoco and David Alfaro Siquieros, whose works became art for the common man.
