An annual treat during our team migration to Chicago for a spring conference. Pork tacos with pineapple salsa were the bomb... and great margaritas! 🤪

We stopped by after an art gallery visit nearby for a fast lunch. Terrific omelette. Also a very good chile releno, and guac. Service was reasonably fast, and pleasant. $40 for two of us, no drinks, before tip.

Quick meal before going across the street to Second City. Noted for the guacamole prepared at the table and margaritas of course. Beautifully presented Ceviche and delicious Sopa de Langosta.

Excellent food and service. Incredible margaritas (shaken at the table) and guacamole (prepared at the table). Will definitely go there again when we visit Chicago.

This Adobe Grill moved about a year ago to North Ave. But the food - especially the guacamole and margaritas (both made table side) are excellent. And the service is excellent too. A bit pricey but worth it.

We went here before Second City with a large group and the restaurant was very accommodating. Great food, drinks, and service. Would love to go again if/when I return for my next visit.

The location on Wells burned down. New address is 215 W. North Ave. Just a block around the corner from old location.
