I've been to Abuelo's twice before this - once impressed, the other unimpressed, regardless of my crippling hangover. the first time was for a friend's going away party and I wasn't paying much attention to the food, but remember it being pretty good.

I'd always wanted to give it another whirl (avoiding the steak entrees) because, frankly, it's a really bitchin' place inside. It's one of the only Mexican restaurants that genuinely remind me of Mexico, with it's architecture, fountains, statues and lighting. This was the view from our table:
