We drove around on a recent banker's holiday, looking for a cheese enchilada. What we found was two things: that most of the local Mexican eateries were closed, and that Abuelo's serves something called the Reynosa Salad. It's a fresh, green salad layered with seasoned ground beef or shredded chicken, jack and Cheddar cheeses, chile con queso, beans, diced tomatoes and guacamole. It's what brings us back to this place time and again, though our dining companions are happy with Abuelo's house specialties like Stuffed Chicken Medallions (chorizo, Poblano, and cheese rolled in a juicy breast and then fried) or the Tilapia Veracruz, sautéed with shrimp, tomatoes, roasted Poblano strips, and olives.
