“The only place to get New Mexico cooking in Scottsdale.”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

The food at Blue Adobe Grille was absolutely fabulous and well worth the time and money. I had been craving some good New Mexican food for some time, and the Blue Adobe fulfilled all my needs. The only thing I wish is the Blue Adobe was a larger restaurant and could hold more patrons.

“Excellent New Mexican Food!”
Reviewed March 5, 2013 via mobile

We were encouraged to try New Mexican food by friends who recommended the Blue Adobe. The place is an a obvious local favorite. Lots of full tables and happy people. The homemade salsa and chips are amazing and not hot so everyone may enjoy them. The spicy, flavorful choices such as the stacked enchiladas with carne adovada ( with a fried egg on top) were absolutely delicious. They have beautiful vegetarian options, a full bar, really friendly and helpful staff, and a great, local, friendly laid-back vibe. Loved the portobello mushroom enchilada with amaretto mushroom cream sauce as well! Parking and access are both good. Highly recommend the Blue Adobe Grill!

“Delicious”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

We just had lunch there and both of us enjoyed our meals immensely. We were able to eat outside and most of the spots either were shaded or had umbrellas.

Their complementary salsa is unique and delicious. The chips were nothing special but the smoky salsa made them nothing more than delivery vehicles anyway.

I followed that with a chipotle shrimp pizza with lots of lovely garlic and pine nuts. A crispy crust was a plus. Possibly the best shrimp pizza ever. My husband had their carne adovada, pieces of pork simmered in red chili sauce. He said it was yummy and the heat crept on him.

The day was beautiful and the staff were friendly. An excellent choice for something from New Mexico.

“First rate all the way”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

Found this hotel by searching restaurants with music. The menu looked good so we made a reservation. We were not dissappointed. The service was first rate, the food very good and the music was great. I would return again and again the next time we visit Scottsdale.

“Delicious!”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

My husband and I wanted Mexican or Southwestern food on our last night in Scottsdale, and we found this restaurant using TripAdvisor. We were not disappointed! First, they have the best salsa I have ever tasted! We were at the bar for Happy Hour and were handed back a dollar coin for every drink ordered - nice touch! Dinner was fabulous. I ordered a plate containing a chili relleno, and again, I can honestly say it was the best chili relleno I have ever had! It was the right place to go before heading back home. We'll be back!!
