Los Abeulos in Ossining: Great Mexican, Friendly Service


After Katherine Curry sent me a photo of her gorgeous-looking tacos at Los Abeulos a few months back, I knew I had to try it. Then I got an email from a former Texan, who said he’d been and adored it, too. That sealed the deal. (We Texans have to stick together.) So I met Katherine there and ordered the tacos. So did she. Again.


(BTW: a note to readers: Katherine and I hit it off, and she’s going to be doing a little guest blogging here on Small Bites pretty soon. She’s a big fan of Blue Hill at Stone Barns, but loves little mom-and-pop places like Los Abuelos, too — just like I do. So look for her posts soon!)

Back to the meal at hand. We started with guacamole. A look at that, and more tacos, after the jump.


Great guac. So fresh and creamy with just the right kick. Here are Katherine’s tacos. She got chicken and I got al Pastor:


Everything was bursting with flavor. Even the rice was fluffy and fresh.

The tacos come witha nice little palate cleanser/salad/condiments of radishes and cucumbers:


The room is simple, but colorful, clean and comfortable:


I love the serape tablecloths.

The 411 is coming. Until then:

38 N. Highland Ave., Ossining. 914-488-5874.

It’s on Route 9, right north of the intersection with 134.

  1. Too bad the onions aren’t grilled. I go to a place in NYC for my tacos on Amsterdam and 108th Street. These look good but they have to go pretty far to top that place. Grill those onions!

  2. I tried Los Abeulos tonight, and have to say it is now my favorite Mexican place in Ossining. The tongue tacos are wonderful. Thanks for the writeup.

  3. I adore Los Abuelos – the food is awesome (the onions are indeed grilled), the staff so friendly, and the prices reasonable. Please give them a try – worth a drive.
