We used to eat here a few years ago on a regular basis. The excitement to be returning faded quickly. The chips and dips came out without our ordering; chips were stale, dips tasteless. My wife got the chile rellenos and I the mole poblano chicken. The mole was very good, everything else was flavorless and/or soggy. The first three... More

Have eaten here in the past and again recent, the food is average. Only big problem was the service which was terrible. Waiter was too busy visiting with friends, had to get up to get refills. There are too many other places to eat that have better food and service, wont go back.

We had dinner while travelling through Santa Fe. Excellent food and service, well worth a visit. We all had different Mexican meals that were very tasty. Kids meals were a good size and plenty of re fills to cool down the chilli.

We had the blue corn pancakes with pinon nuts & blueberries. Yummy! The service was good. Family-type restaurant. Serves breakfast, lunch & dinner.

We picked this place because it was across the street from our motel and figured 'how bad can it be?' Little did we know it could be very bad. Our first clue was the awful margarita's. They tasted like they used that horribly sweet premade mix you buy in the grocery store. The food itself was only moderately better. considering... More

This place is great. Good service (despite what is said by other reviewers) and a very varied menu. They have things on the menu that one very seldom sees. One example: the cow's lips are out of this world. The dish comes with corn tortillas, cilantro, and raw onions and are as soft and delicious as can be. The meat... More

The service was ok, but not the best. They brought us chips and salsa but the chips weren't very good. I wasn't very hungry when I ordered so I got the popcorn shrimp, which was very delicious. Overall it was an ok experience, but not my favorite.

We have eaten at Adelita's many times over the years. The food remains delicious! They have changed their location to a few blocks north of where they were 5 years ago, but the quality of their food remains great.

You don't come to Adel it as for decor or glossy menus. You come for delicious food. My husband and I are on a long road trip of 3 weeks and the seafood dish for two was simply one of the best dishes I have ever enjoyed. Clams, shrimp, a couple of crab claws, and much more in a savory... More

We got into town tonight and we wanted Mexican food so we went to Adelita´s. That was a huge mistake. I ordered a Margarita and they were out of mix....whaaaat??? Are you kidding me? A Mexican restaurant where you can't get a Margarita. We should have left but we figured we'd stay because it was close to our hotel. We... More
