Typically you won’t find me ordering a strawberry margarita on a Tuesday night, I’m typically more of a wine drinker..but this dinner out was extra sweet and special. You see, a few weeks ago Abuelo’s reached out to invite me and my family to stop in and try their “Fajitas for Two” Valentine’s Day special, that also included margaritas and dessert. We try to eat at home during the week but it was funny, I was literally just daydreaming about Mexican food when the email came through and I took it as a sign that we had to say “yes!
Our experience at this Warrensville Heights restaurant (near Eaton Corp) for sure did not disappoint. From the moment we walked in we felt super welcomed by the hostess who greeted us. Once seated we had an incredible server who explained the menu and the cocktails in detail.
We started our meal with strawberry margaritas, chips, salsas, and QUESO; so good! Then our server brought out their “Firecracker Shrimp” which had the perfect amount of spice for all of us. Next up was the sizzling platter of chicken, steak, and shrimp fajitas with grilled veggies. Our little guy was in awe of how the plate was sizzling and crackling when it arrived but then how quickly we were making and eating our own tacos. Honestly, we didn’t make that much of a dent in the portion (chips do that to me every time!) but not to worry, our rockstar server packed it up for us to-go…including our dessert..to enjoy another time at home.
Thank you to Abuelo’s for connecting and inviting us to dinner. It was super fun to have a night off cooking at home PLUS your food, drink (s – I had 2!) and staff were really impressive. Mr C. was also pleasantly surprised that he found you them on “Door Dash” and is now schemeing to have the queso delivered late night!
If you are looking for a fun place to bring your sweetie on Valentine’s Day or anytime for that matter, visit Abuelo’s. One thing that our son thought was really cool was the sky-like ceiling in their dining room…I think he was fascinated that it looked like we were outside but nice and warm inside; super fun!
