“Great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013 via mobile

I enjoy going to adobe about once a month. It has a real mexican feel in the place. If you were expecting to see a modern restaurant this is not the place for you. Their steak tips are awesome, I highly recommend them. They offer good food and drink combination specials on Monday and Tuesday nights. Also their chips and salsa is great, one of the best salsas!

“Not what I expected!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

My sister and I went there for happy hour. It really was not what I expected. The place was a bit run down. Like 2 points from being a whole in the wall. However, the staff was freindly and the classic margarita wa delicous and they gave you a generous drink! The chicken wings were good. The tamales were uggghhh... ok ?? The chicken quesadillas were horrible and so was the guacolme. I probably would not go back there. The drop ceiling in the ladies room was falling and I was afraid something would drop out of there. If I had to take it or leave it I would leave it. But I'm not gonna give up. I'm going to try the one in South Philadelphia and I let you guys know what happened! Stay posted....

“Always an option”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Living close to Adobe Cafe has been a wonderful experience. The food has never disappointed and the atmosphere is always laid back with great customer service.

They have delicious and inexpensive margaritas and their draft beers are great as well.

I enjoy the fajitas which come out piping hot and quite tasty.

Would recommend this place to anyone who likes Mexican cuisine!

“Delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013 via mobile

Go in on Monday or Tuesday nights. They have a great deal. A pitcher of beer, margaritas, or sangria plus two entrees for only $35! They had so many options to choose from. We went with the steak tips served with a delicious dipping sauce and steak tacos. Everything was delicious. We got the pitcher of house margaritas which were very tasty. And they start you off with a free appetizer of chips and salsa. Overall very pleased and will return !
