This is one of those places you always hear about where you shouldn't let the hole-in-the-wall appearance deceive you. The place looks superficially cheesy, with worn formica tables and all that. But the food is inventive, interesting, and overall pretty decent. We had the guac made tableside, which was quite good. I ordered the small plate tamales, which are a... More

We stopped in to Adobo for dinner prior to heading to a Second City show. The hoses was very pleasant and quickly showed us to our table. Our waiter stopped by fairly quickly to drop the food and alcohol menus. He came back about 3 or 4 minutes later to ask if we had any questions, asked what we wanted... More

Visited on a Friday night and the place was packed but we were able to get right in. The food and drinks were amazing and our server was very helpful! Oh, and they have 90 brands of tequila...what's not to love about that!!

Excellent service and a varied menu. They make the guacamole at your table to order. Try the Gorditas and crevices.

This is my favourite Mexican restaurant in Chicago. We've been three times now. The guacamole is to die for, made right at your table. The margaritas are delicious. The food is always tasty, and everything is reasonably priced. Located in Old Town, it is right next to Second City and a number of interesting shops.

Great location by Second City, easy walking distance to lots of bars and public transportation so you can park your car and still get around easily. A fun place with good food.

Very limited tequila drink menu. Tons of tequila to try but mixed tequila drinks very limited. Food was mediocre. Best thing was the guacamole. Staff was average. Maybe it was just one of those nights for them.

We liked Adobo Grill a lot. Food was very tasty and we found the menu interesting and original. My margarita was pretty good too. Ambiance is a bit flat but overall we were happy with our dinning experience.

We are so glad we found this place. Just doing the touristy walking thing in Old Town and thought Mexican food sounded like a good idea, so in we went. What a find! You must order the guacamole, which they make at your table. You must have a margarita (or two). It was seriously the best margarita I've had in... More
