Pros: Food is edible, free parking

Cons: Takes FOREVER

Abuelita's is delicious Mexican food. Unfortunately, we do not get over here enough because it is a little out of the way for us, but when we go we are always satisfied with our experience.

I have lived in Topanga for a few years, and have gotten take-out from Abuelita's several times. Each time I do, I promise myself that I never will again. Then I think, months later... "Aw... it can't be THAT bad." It always is THAT bad!

Pros: The creekside tables

Cons: The food.

Ok, the hostess forgot about us. What's really important is the food. I read such glowing reviews, this has to be great. And look at all those pictures on the website, just where were those photos taken? And all the locals and their

When i read the reviews about their bad service i didnt expect to experience it. Little did i know i was wrong. Abuelita's has the WORSE service in the world. And i mean that. First of all they only have two waiters. And one of them is

My boyfriend and I go here as much as we can afford the drive! The waitresses are cool (I have no idea what the other people are talking about who complain about bad service-we have been here over 20 times and always been treated well)

Pros: mole sauce, ambiance, service

Cons: tucked away and hard to get to from where I live!

My family recently moved to Topanga, and first on our list of things to do was to find a Mexican restaurant nearby that had a relaxed family atmosphere, great margaritas, and "clean" Mexican food. It's not lard heavy. The seafood is good. They also allow any special requests with no attitude. VIVA ABUELITAS!

During a visit to Abuelita's while visiting a friend in Topenga, I received terrible service from a waitress. She was unfamiliar with the menu, forgot to bring extra napkins, failed to bring my appetizer (I had to ask the busboy twice),

Not only is the food mediocre, I had to park/get my own car after paying a valet $3. The staff was rude and it took forever to get the food and drinks, AHH!\r
NOT RECOMMENDED!

While I certainly wouldn't call the food the most authentice, it's pretty tasty nonetheless. It's really the ambience that's the selling point, however. I love sitting on the patio with the creek flowing in the background. Also, the
