May 10 was the last day the El Adobe was open. The owner got a good offer to buy the land there and decided to retire. It was a great day-in-and-day-out place to grab an original Mexican lunch or dinner, and most things on the...More

My son said Mexican food is one of his favorites, so we visited El Adobe a couple of weeks ago. We each had enchiladas, refried beans and rice. It was delicious. We didn't have room for dessert this time but El Adobe was the first...More

The decor was pretty, and the service was good. Clean place, nice atmosphere. I have never tasted salsa as terrible as el adobe's though. Pretty sure it was ketchup with some cayenne pepper in it, and maybe canned tomatoes. It was bad. I grew up...More

From the time you walk in, and start with your complimentary chips, and their awesome salsa, anything you order will be a treat. Don't pass on dessert their churros with honey is an unusual treat.

The place seemed slightly dirty but I had to give it a try despite people's comments about it. Food was alright.

Always a regular stop. The salsa, quest, and guacamole are my favorites. I've tried many things and enjoyed them, the fried fish tacos are my favorite. Yum!

El Adobe is a must stop every time we're within 50 miles! They have fantastic food, everything from the salsa to the way they cook their ground beef is phenomenal! I am truly shocked to see negative reviews and strongly encourage you to disregard them....More

Have been here a couple times and we decided to try it again last night. Despite the full parking lot, we were sat right away, and our waiter was there within seconds. Our drinks came fast. Always enjoy their house margarita. Food came out faster...More

We were regulars back in the late 70's and 80's with our kids and are now frequenting the "Dobe" with our 6 grandkids. The same cheap, fast, delicious food consistently through the years. Great service and a charming and accommodating manager ready to make us...More
