Great unexpected Mexican entrees like Blue Crab enchiladas, Mahi Mahi Shrimp tacos, Filet Mignon enchiladas, Calamari Steak tacos... you get the picture. Delicioso!!! Also great service, fast friendly and attentive, but the place is tiny so the more people who know about this place the longer I will have to wait for a table...hey why am I even writing this...

Found this place on-line. It is on a little side street and never knew it was there. From the outside, looks like a hole in the wall Mexican joint. Walk inside and whole different world. Clean and colorful. Had their special enchilada topped with Ancho chili sauce, spinach and guacamole. Stuffed with pieces of tender pork pieces. SO fresh tasting... More

Visiting family in Orange and stopped here on a recommendation from a Chapman student. Small and intimate dining with a great Mexican theme. The happy hour beers were cold and reasonably priced. I had one of the dinner specials, Portabello mushroom and shrimp ravioli with a pesto sauce. Not really Mexican, but this was a top rated meal. I'll go... More

We were staying in Orange for a couple of days and came here a couple of times and enjoyed every visit! The place does not look like anything extra, but don't let that fool you. The food here is really something you must try. But beware - during evening, people line up for a table and the place is packed... More

We always come back to Taco Adobe. My sons love the burritos (clasicos). The food is always consistent, the staff pleasant and the owner nice. We have never been disappointed with the food. They also have specials which are wonderful.

Food is prepared fresh and tastes great. I love their daily specials especially when they have the lobster enchilada. Yummy!!! Marco the owner is always there and he and his staff give excellent customer service. I eat here at least once per week. Their rice and beans are fresh tasting. They are open for lunch and dinner with outdoor seating... More

We went last Thursday. My Grouper Enchilada's were excellent. My wife's fish taco's were fried in old grease. Hardly any fish in a lot of greasy batter. I would like to see a line out the door for this restaurant. They can be very successful if the owner would take five days and go to Baja Fish Taco in Lake... More

The street tacos and chips and salsa are excellent, and the Corona is cold. All of their menu items are fresh and tasty. A couple of blocks away from the Orange circle, it's a great place to eat. Parking isn't as problematic as it is nearer the circle. We'll definitely go back.

Cozy mexican restaurant just on the edge of downtown Orange. This is not your garden variety taco shack. Taco Adobe does the classics, but they come across a bit more gourmet here. Their fresh fish specials are great.
