Feels Like Home

Welcome ¡la bienvenida! to Abuelita’s!

We serve homemade Mexican food, that transports you to sitting around your Grandmother’s table with your family. One of our fondest memories is sitting around our Grandmother’s tables with full stomachs and hours of conversation. And we want everyone to feel the comfort that memories like those can bring.

Daily Menu

Mexico’s cuisine is much more complex and creative than most people realize. Homemakers, like the lovely matriarch’s in our families, created stunning flavors with simple ingredients by using a variety of techniques. Abuelita’s, meaning grandmother in Spanish, using those techniques to bring you food so good, you’ll never stop coming back.

I have an Abuelitas problem. I’m there once a week at least, lol. Hands down one of the best restaurants in Richmond. Please go now.

This was excellent and my wife and I were both full when the plate was cleaned. . . Restaurant was very clean and well decorated.
