I'm not an expert on Mexican cuisine but I enjoyed my meal very much and prices were reasonable. We had crispy fish tacos, carnitas, rice and beans. It is a small place, which is why we tried it. It was very busy but we served quickly. I liked the hustle and bustle.

Based on recommendations from fellow reviewers, we found Adolfo's tonight and for under $25, we had a great meal with fast service. No margaritas but they have a cold refrigerator of beer and wine and four taps. If you are hunting for it, if you see the dry cleaners it is just north of there. This was a good value.... More

A hole in the wall with atmosphere!! My son took me to lunch at Adolfos glad he did. The restaurant is small, but with a great vibe. There is open patio seating, on a busy street but beautifully screened with flowers and bushes. Felt like a little oasis. The food was excellent! I had a fish taco, $2.50. The plate... More

Good food, and cheap for a southern California tourist town....if you like Mex, you owe it to yourself to try this place. Friendly, bring it to your table service. You can watch the giant pots of meat/beans/etc. boiling on the grill as you walk to your table (proof of their popularity). Outside seating is available, with greenery and glass windscreens... More

If you want fancy go elsewhere, if you want cheap, local good mexican food come here! The place is tiny and the kitchen is open. The food is consistent and always good. I have never had a bad meal here. It is one of the few things I miss about living in Laguna Beach and always my first stop.

Me and my fiancé loved the food we ate here, a bit 'takeaway' but tasty nonetheless!! Awesome service

This is a small local mexican joint. Decent place to grad a quick lunch. You order at the counter and the staff brings out the order when ready. Served on paper plates with plastic utensils, so nothing fancy. Food was fresh: fresh veggies make a big difference. Flavour was okay, nothing special. Portion size was good. Food was more expensive... More

There's not many places that you can get a great tasting meal for very little money at Laguna Beach; but Adolfo's is one such place. The food is very good, the prices a great, and the setting is casual and laid back. Great seafood tacos.
