The Adobo Grill is a wonderful
The Adobo Grill is a wonderful change from the typical Indianapolis Mexican fare. Great fresh food and the service is superb.

Almost excellent but lacking
Adobo has a cool vibe and some appetizing, authentic Mexican dishes, but while our chicken tamales were excellent, the duck nachos were "meh." The duck was dry and listless, not awful, just not nearly as good as other things I've eaten there in the past. Still a fun experience overall, but not a great dish by any means. Love the tequila bar & I'm not typically a tequila drinker, and our group oved the margaritas. Fresh guacamole made at your table was as delicious as it was fun!

Best Mexican food in Indianapolis!
I've never had anything that I didn't LOVE here! From the salsa to the guacamole to the tacos- everything was perfect! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Adobo was a recent find for a friend and I, and after visiting twice in two days, a month later we brought our husbands. All agree the guacamole is to die for, but so is the food. Carne Asada is my favorite. The drinks were delicious, as well, and the entire restaurant experience is pleasant, even fun. Our server was kind, attentive, and had a good sense of humor. We will return many times to Adobo.

Top drawer Mexican cuisine
I never expected to find Mexican cuisine of this quality in Indianapolis. This restaurant is a gem! The service was outstanding! The waiters were very attentive and knowledgeable. The food was very good, with many unique choices. The dining area is large, with a main floor and an open second floor. It tends to be on the noisy side. I was there with a group of about 10. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Highly recommended.

Fun and tasty tableside touches
My husband and parents enjoyed our dining and celebration experience at Adobo Grill, Indiananapolis on May 16, 2013. Restaurant is in the heart of downtown, an easy walk from any number of downtown hotels. Very attentive wait staff. Traditional band made their way around the dining guests but music wasn't overpowering, added nice ambience. Tableside touches all included guacamole and roasted pico de gallo made while we watched, individual margarittas shaken and poured, and enjoyable conversation with chef/manager. Good choice of a restaurant for celebrating a 53rd wedding anniversary!

Pedro T. Was fabulous!! He worked with our food allergies and his recommendations were perfect for our palate.

Excellent food and service
I was entertaining guests from out of town, and needed a restaurant with good vegetarian options downtown. Adobo Grill was a great choice. I was running late, and the restaurant was more than willing to push my reservation back. Parking is right next door, and the food is outstanding. It's definitely a cut above your usual Mexican restaurant, yet the prices were reasonable. Guacamole is made tableside, and the free salsa is smoky and tasty. We stayed until well after closing, in a semi-private dining area, and they did not hound us to leave. I'd highly recommend this to anyone.

Great for a party
I planned a Bachelorette Party for my friend and she wanted Mexican food so I thought Adobo would be perfect! I made reservations through Open Table but because of traffic we were a little late. We called and they asked when we would be there and we're very nice about it. They had our table waiting! We had great service with how many big parties they had there. It was loud and a little hard to hear each other but other than that we had a great experience! Wonderful food! And a good time!

Good Mexican food in Indy
This was a nice find for dinner while visiting Indy for a conference. The food was authentic, well prepared, and very good. The tableside guacamole was excellent - freshly prepared with just the right amount of zing. The chile relleno was stuffed with a blend of mexican cheeses and smothered with a nice ranchero salsa and black beans. The lomito (pork) mole was also excellent. The house margaritas were very good. Service was friendly and efficient, and all the staff were very friendly. We were there later in the evening on a mid-week night, so things were fairly quiet, but I suspect it could be pretty lively on a weekend or earlier in the evening. Highly recommended - we will definitely return the next time we are visiting Indy.
6/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a party of 12 for a bachelorette even. We could not have been more pleased with the food and service! Very nice presentation and we did not wait long for our meals. The hand made margarittas are amazing! I will surely be back.

Great dining experience
Went to Adobo for dinner last night and had another excellent experience. Service was excellent. Everyone from our main server and the support staff exceeded our expectations. We ordered multiple items to share including the beef enchiladas, the cilantro marinated flank steak and the combination of cazuelas. Each dish was absolutely delicious and perfectly executed. The drinks, margaritas and mojitos, were wonderful, as well. The guacamole was perfect and prepared table side, nice touch. The only disappointing thing we had was the salsa sampler. I would definitely recommend adobo to anyone looking for a great night out.
6/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
Love the food and service, but gaga over the sangria pouring.
6/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good downtown choice -Mexican food
The Made-at the Table Gaumole continues to be great. Our son (adult) wanted to lick the bowl! Mahi mahi was prepared well and the seafood enchiladas were superb. Our waitress was great, there when we needed her, courteous and friendly. Good margaritas too. We will return, yet again?
6/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Adobo is a great place to visit in Indy. The table-side guacamole is not to be missed. Great atmosphere and an overall good experience!

Best Guacamole, Duck, & Margaritas
EXCELLENT FOOD!!!! We've been a couple times and look forward to Adobo every time we go! Duck tacos are definitely a must! Great for date night and girls night out.

adobo grill and groups
We had made reservations for a group of 6 for a pre-concert dinner. Our reservations were changed the day of our arrival to 8 and they accommodated us with a very nice private table upstairs overlooking the main restaurant floor. We had wonderful service, delicious food and were taken care of in time to make our concert! Adobo Grill has never disappointed us, and we will definately return again. The fresh guac and the straight up margaritas are wonderul as well!
7/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Thank you for offering vegan options! This was my first time to Adobo Grill and I was so impressed! It was great to order right off the menu without having to ask for adjustments to be made to my meal. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Gaucamole is phenomenal
All of our entrees were very good but I did not care for the mole sauce on my pork entree. The gauc was excellent as it always is. Love this place and have recommended to lots of friends!
8/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
LOVED the guacamole prepared table side. The food was delicious. We will be back.
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
We always enjoy Adobo!!
We have frequented Adobo Grill ever since it opened in Indy. We have never been disappointed!
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Another great meal at Adobo's! Great patient service, responding to our every request. Meals were excellent, appetizers fantastic, folks checked back often to make sure things were good.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
great food and service as always
i seldom have any comment that would even remotely resemble a complaint about this restaurant. the food and service is always spectacular.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food and service are great. This is a must try. They have the best Margarita I have ever tasted.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Absolutly loved it! go there
Absolutly loved it! go there all the time! You have to try the Guacamole!

Great Food and Drinks
We went to Adobo for the Devour Downtown menu, and we were not disappointed! The freshly prepared margaritas and guacamole were outstanding, as were the heirloom salads that started off our meals. I had the marinated chicken and my girlfriend had the steak tacos, both of which were phenomenal. We finished off the meal with churros, which I had never had before, but I thought were very good. Overall great experience, and we will definitely go back even when devour downtown is over!
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
First time for me at this place. Had a really great time. The food was great, the atmosphere was just as good. My date and I had a fun night mixed in the salsa lessons, it was a blast.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
The staff was very attentive from the moment we walked in restaurant. I was immediately greeted by manager (Angel) with a big smile. This was my first time in restaurant & I was very impressed with service, food, and the speed of the food coming out especially since I was on a lunch break.
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Not your average Mexican Restaurant
Many in Indianapolis are familiar with Adobo. This is a real gourmet Mexican Restaurant. The downtown location is small but comfortable. They have a good bar with top-shelf tequila. I enjoyed a Negra Modelo on tap - hard to find. The food is outstanding and the guacamole is to die for. I recommend this place for folks who are interested in having beautifully prepared food with a Mexican flare.
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were celebrating an anniversary with family. Food and specialty drinks were good; guacamole was incredible! Atmosphere was nice- we had our own private room which was unique and we really enjoyed that.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
A great find
I am in town on business and was looking for an alternative to a sports bar or large chain restaurant. The menu is creative. The basil mojito was refreshing. The chips were warm and very fresh. The tilapia cheviche had a great citrus punch. The duck tacos were very flavorful. There was just the right amount of rice and beans on the dinner plate - no huge piles or puddles.
The wait staff was friendly and attentive.

Adobo Grill Review
My daughter and I attended a conference in downtown Indianapolis, and picked this restaurant for its cuisine, proximity to our hotel, and its representation in an Urban Spoon listing. Our reservation was quite early (5:15pm), and the restaurant was scarcely populated so there was no noise at all. Nonetheless, it did have a nice ambiance. The service was quick and satisfactory. The menu had a number of original signature entrees, but when we asked the waitress to make a recommendation, she was not able to do it, which we found quite disappointing. Despite that, we thoroughly enjoyed the entrees we selected, as well as the house margaritas. I would definitely go back, if I had the chance, and would recommend it to others.

A true treat
Adobo's food experience was outstanding, as usual. From the tableside guacamole to the entree and the margueritas, excellence was found everywhere. Two thumbs way up.
9/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
In town for a convention, loved it
We loved the table guac, the service and the food. I wish there was an Adobo in Denver, CO.

Perfect Romantic Birthday
When I booked the reservation I let Adobo know that my husband and I were celebrating his birthday. I asked for a nice, quiet table and Adobo came through brilliantly. We were seated in a tiny room off of the main dining area. It was perfect; quiet but still within view and ear shot of the lively restaurant. Our waiter was fabulous, offering wonderful suggestions for drinks and eats. He encouraged me try 'Ceviche' - something I'd never had before. He detailed the dish perfectly and when I tasted it, I was thrilled. It was exactly as he had described and is now a new favorite! Our margaritas were outstanding - just as Adobo 'ritas always are. Following dinner, we were treated to a complementary slice of cake to honor my Love's special day.
10/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
I have never had a bad meal at Adobo and they don't find it necessary to blast us out with music, so a group can actually talk.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great for group
We were seated in the front room for our group of 12 and it was perfect. Service was great and they were accommodating to our requests for separate checks. Thank you for making it a great experience for our group.

Great night out!
My husband and I came up to Indy from southern Indiana for a night away, and decided to go to Adobo Grill for dinner. We arrived early and sat at the bar for a drink. The bartenders were very knowledgable about tequila and friendly. We were seated on the main level for our dinner, but asked to move upstairs. The hostess was very accomodating and happily moved us upstairs. The upstairs area doesn't have a lot of seating, but this made it more private, quieter and was a great place to look over the rest of the restaurant. The guacamole was amazing, and so was the rest of our meal. We took the waitress's recommendation for our food recommendation and we're glad we did. We had a great dinner in Indy and so glad we chose Adobo Grill!

You Worked Hard For It
So, okay guys, this was not your best night. You only had three (3) wait-staff for the entire restaurant (as told to us by our out-of-breath waitress). It was a Thursday night and Pink was in concert a block and a half down Penn. ~Major oversight? More like: Epic Fail! However, everyone who was there working, was working their tails off! I'm still offering a "Very Good" for over all dining experience because, even though it took about 10-minutes for our waitress to get to us and we never saw her again, the food came out fast and it was fabulous as always. Adobo is our favorite. We've dined with you at least 10-times in the last 2-years and had superb service. Hey, everyone has an off night. We'll be back for sure. No worries.
11/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
Service was good. Guacamole made table side and it was delicious. Perfect sized portions. Not to much food and not to little food. Menu is kind of limited. But I was able to find something to my liking. Some of the tables, including ours, were to close together which made it a tad uncomfortable. Their were lots of other tables open, so I'm unsure why they squeezed us in this tiny spot.

Wounderful Experience !
Very nice restaurant .
The cerviche sampler was delicious !
Great tequila list.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Love this place...
Always have great food and great service. The table side guacamole is always a favorite as are the house margaritas. I had the Salmon en Tabla and it was amazing!!!

Adobo Muy Bueno!
I think Adobo is a great location, with great food, surrounded by great service. Every time I go, I have an excellent experience. I will be back.
