“A relief to eat at a tasty and affordable restaurant”
Reviewed July 1, 2013 via mobile

Based on recommendations from fellow reviewers, we found Adolfo's tonight and for under $25, we had a great meal with fast service. No margaritas but they have a cold refrigerator of beer and wine and four taps. If you are hunting for it, if you see the dry cleaners it is just north of there. This was a good value. Your order at the register, and within minutes they bring your food out to your booth or outside on patio. I will probably go back before end of the week. They don't have a trip advisor sign in there window, so, if anyone has an extra to bestow upon them, bring it when you visit. Another good tip - after 7pm, you don't have to feed the parking meters during the weekdays. This is only about a two miles from Heisler park, so after a stroll, head for MExican!

“Great Food Great Value”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

A hole in the wall with atmosphere!! My son took me to lunch at Adolfos glad he did. The restaurant is small, but with a great vibe. There is open patio seating, on a busy street but beautifully screened with flowers and bushes. Felt like a little oasis. The food was excellent! I had a fish taco, $2.50. The plate came with two soft corn tortillas and heaped with fish. So I split the fish and made it into two tacos. More than enough food and for $2.50!

Don't miss Adolfos, when I return to Laguna Beach, I will be back!

“Best Mexican food for the price -”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

Good food, and cheap for a southern California tourist town....if you like Mex, you owe it to yourself to try this place. Friendly, bring it to your table service. You can watch the giant pots of meat/beans/etc. boiling on the grill as you walk to your table (proof of their popularity). Outside seating is available, with greenery and glass windscreens to cut down on street noise from highway 1. We ate there twice in 3 days. You will not regret eating here!

“Best local hole in the wall”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

If you want fancy go elsewhere, if you want cheap, local good mexican food come here! The place is tiny and the kitchen is open. The food is consistent and always good. I have never had a bad meal here. It is one of the few things I miss about living in Laguna Beach and always my first stop.
