For less than $10 you can build your own fresh burrito. Pick from a variety of meats and many different toppings. Huge portion and very good in flavor. Super quick if you're on the go as well. I've only ate at their food truck until...I realized that they opened a small spot on Main Street. Definitely worth a try.More

If you would read the reviews for this place you would think it’s the best place ever. But the thing is, Dubuque is setting the standards way to low for Mexican food. If you’ve been to a Chipotle it’s kind of like that, build a...meal type restaurant. Except the food is uninspiring and lacks flavor. Both mine and the person I was with disliked the food. Maybe it’s cause I’ve lived in the SW part of the country for 20 years and I have a higher standard for Mexican foodMore

Who would expect to find the best burritos ever in Iowa? We sure did! There was a huge selection of meats, beans, rice, and all kinds of toppings including rajas. The price was reasonable and the staff friendly. And, I must add, the restrooms were...spotless!More

If you're a fan of burrito bar style restaurants & haven't been to Adobos, do yourself a favor and give it a try. They have great food, with several choices of meat, a nice selection of fresh ingredients, friendly staff and it's always clean. It...will likely become a regular stop!More

I always get the steak and cheese burrito. You get to choose what type of shell and what you want in it. Choose from several meats, rice, beans, corn, lettuce cheese etc. A few table are outside directly on Main St. which makes it nice...to people watch.More

Years ago when I first tried Adobos I found the food good, but drowning in a sea of similar Mexican-cuisine restaurants. Then they changed to the popular “burrito bar” style, where they build your choice of tacos, burritos, etc. as you go along picking your...favorite meat and toppings. And now, this undoubtedly one of Dubuque’s must eats. The selection of meats is nice, I find the beef and steak are my favorites. The diablo sauce is a nice touch as well if you love a bit of spice. If you’re a fan of places like Pancheros or Chipotle, be sure to check out Adobos...because it just may become your new go to.More

The picture I added to this review is from when they were out at the Dubuque County Fair, which was delicious. They also come out and cater to our work quite a bit. There is always a long line when they do because everyone loves...their food. Their veggies are fresh and crisp. Their queso is so creamy and yummy. They have the best nachos I have ever had. Prices are very fair. I would highly recommend this place for a truly great Mexican Grill experience.More

They make the best burritos here! Love the food truck they have at Farmer's Market on Saturday's when they make their breakfast burritos. Have tried the beef and chicken at lunch, both are amazing!

We stopped at Adobos Mexican Grill for a lunch burrito and a couple of $5.00 margaritas. The food was very good, as the burritos were muy grande. The staff was friendly. The prices are reasonable.

Fast food, build your own meal. Ingredients are fresh. Line moves fast. Salsa and guacamole are very good. There are a couple of tables outside during the day.
