I enjoy and am very critical about different styles of Mexican food and Blue Adobe has become one of my new favorites; what a nice surprise and value. This place had a nice ambiance, welcoming young staff, and live music on a Thursday night. Not much of a bar scene but we didn't go there to just drink.The tortilla chips... More

I was in Scottsdale on vacation and stopped in at a different bar and grill to grab a bite and a beer. After waiting for over 10 minutes with no acknowledgement I got up and left to return to my hotel. I noticed this restaurant heading back and figured to give it a try, Within 3 minutes of being seated... More

First revelation: we live in New Mexico. That's means we eat green or red chile weekly, with all degrees of spicy. I had the pork chops with raspberry chipotle and mango salsa. Served up with a big mound of red chile mashed potatoes; the chile is stirred into the potatoes, not smothered on top. Very inventive, deliciously flavored. It was... More

Had eaten here on a previous trip to S'dale and were excited to return. Unfortunately it wasn't quite as good as our initial visit. Service was friendly albeit a little less attentive than one would like. Chips and salsa were tangy and tasty. Chicken tacos were delicious BUT the pork carnitas, although moist and tender, were immersed in a heavy... More

Thank you for the feedback. I apologize for the lack of attentiveness regarding service. No excuse. The Carne Adovada Tacos are an acquired taste. Adobo Sauce for which the pork is immersed is not as sugary as a typical American BBQ sauce. Thanks for the head's up.... More

This place had good reviews so we tried it, we've tried every Mexican in Scottsdale. It was OK, nothing special. The servers were good, the music was live and really bad, which I think didn't help our experience. Every said their meals were just OK.

Sorry about your less than satisfactory culinary experience. We are more of a Santa Fe Style/Southwest concept. Can you tell me what day you dined and what you had? Anything specific? I will use your email as a training vehicle. Thanks for the feedback, More

Gave it a try, despite the rather long drive from Scottsdale Old Town . We dined on the nice patio. It was Thursday and there was live music. One guy with guitar, did a good job. Our waiter was extremely friendly, knowledgable, patient. Great southwestern food. Given quality, preparation and presentation of food the prices were appropriate. Don't expect a... More

Do not give a history lesson on New Mexico dishes unless you can deliver correctly each dish was bland.

Not a fan of Mex restaurants trying to be haute. Mex is Mex. But this place is awesome! Super fresh ingredients, wood grilled meats and all the traditional dishes along with creative options. Try the stacked enchiladas with Christmas sauce. A bit pricey, but really, really good!

Visit here quite a lot as a seasonal resident in the valley I very much like the chicken quesadilla. My wife usually gets a salad. Staff is always friendly

Chips are fresh and we love their non-traditional salsa. Used pecan wood to roast many of their signature dishes. Stacked enchiladas are very good especially if you as them to kick up the spice. Pork tenderloin is also one of our favorite dishes
