Abuelo's

Since 1989, Abuelo's Mexican Food Embassy has been shuttling back and forth with Mexican and Tex-Mex diplomacy. Both cuisines are available on the menu -- and in generous portions. However, it's the Mexican food that is favored by the kitchen. The house specialties include Stuffed Chicken Medallions (fried chicken breast stuffed with chorizo, Poblano chilies and cheese) and Pescado Guerrero (wood-grilled, mahi-mahi with shrimp, scallops, mushrooms, spinach, roasted peppers and sliced avocado in a white-wine sauce). The combo platters, named after cities like Nogales and Laredo, are where the Tex-Mex shines with all its border-crossing festiveness. The Juarez comes with a crispy beef taco, a tamale, sour cream chicken enchilada and a cheese enchilada. Enjoy any of the aforementioned dishes with a signature drink, like the sangria-margarita hybrid.
