Continue to Return!
On my husband's list for returning to when we are visiting. I like their chips and salsa, guacamole was fine. I had the seafood enchilada and my husband had a couple of beef burritos. The prickly pear margarita is good and regular too. I had the apple empanadas again.

We were in the Phoenix area
We were in the Phoenix area for a few days for spring training and found this place for dinner. Not your run of the mill Mexican restaurant. More than enough food on my plate, and my Halibut was very moist and seasoned just right. We would go back next time we're in the neighborhood.

We stumbled upon this gem while vacationing in Arizona and were very pleased with the food and service. Their salsa was delicious!

Always a pleasure to dine at Blue Adobe and especially on the patio!
One of our favorite restaurants in Scottsdale.

AWESOME!! Great atmosphere
AWESOME!! Great atmosphere and food. A Southwest flare that is unique in it presentation. Far from overpowering, but incredibly flavorfull. Salmon is the best anywhere!!

Tasty Food, Great Service, Loud
We are from Buckeye, about 45 miles from this restaurant, but a friend was staying in Scottsdale for the night and we chose to go to Blue Adobe based on the AZ Republic review. She wanted Mexican food. While the Blue Adobe is not traditional Mexican or even TexMex, it was a great choice. The food was very tasty - we shared a salad and the carne adovada, plenty for two. Lots left over. Husband had the stacked enchiladas and he cleaned the plate. Sides were nothing special (beans, rice). Tortillas seem fresh. Salsa was interesting and smoky. Waitress was terrific - even suggested a similar but cheaper beer. The only downside is the noise level. We went on Friday night when they have live music. Too loud to even talk.

Terrific New Mexican food
Terrific New Mexican food with unique flavors. Green chilies are my favorites. It makes me feel like I'm in Sante Fe. Staff is well trained and friendly.

Favorite Southwestern Restaurant
The Cruz Kitchen Signature is always one of our favorites, and our guests enjoyed it too. I had their Beef Tenderloin Medallion topped with Jalapeño Hollandaise with a Green Chile Potato, and I added on a Portabella Mushroom Enchilada with Amaretto Mushroom Cream Sauce because it is so unusually tasty. We love the food here!

Why go any where else?
We've been patronizing this restaurant since it opened. The carne adovada is sooo good. The first restaurant my kids and their families want to visit when in town from Tucson is Blue Adobe. Michael knows how to run a restaurant and always seems to enjoy his job. He does an outstanding job training his staff. Don't miss a chance on visiting this restaurant!

Great food in a very casual setting
Corner pub casual atmosphere, great for couples, groups or families. Food quality was excellent, however, far surpassing pub style. Great service too. Well worth the trip to this hidden corner of North Scottsdale.

5 diners, 4 SW chicken pasta. Not as spicy this time but still very good.
Only suggestion - we had an elderly lady with us who just wanted fruit and there was little to offer her.

The food is always wonderful
The food is always wonderful and different from any other restaurant. Try the pork loin with the raspberry chipotle sauce or the lobster mac and cheese. And the green chile lobster dip is a MUST. Plus, the margaritas and the peach sangria are excellent. We always take our visitors to Blue Adobe!

Our server Ashley was knowledgeable
Our server Ashley was knowledgeable about the menu and friendly. Service and food was excellent. Something new they started was having a singer on the patio - it was a perfect day, not too hot with a breeze. The music was a nice welcome and enjoyable, as well as appropriate for our lunchtime to celebrate Cinco de Mayo :)

Excellent Sonoran Discovery!
We were looking for a casual Mother's Day afternoon and were delighted with our choice. The food was beautifully presented and it proved very tasty as well. It will certainly bring us back. It was truly Sonoran Cuisine with a flair.

I took my girlfriend there
I took my girlfriend there for Mother's Day and it was a very nice surprise for her. The food was delicious and the wait staff was very attentive. My girlfriend received special treatment for Mother's Day to include a mimosa, soup or salad and a dessert of creme brulee. Very nice!

blue adobe three days In a row
Good service for sure. Manager is awesome. Food is consistently very good. The bathrooms are dirty as heck. Kitchen area by bathrooms is dirty too. Just clean up the bathrooms. Remodel those dirty things. Make the kitchen and restrooms match the food and service.. I've heard many people complain about the dirty kitchen and even dirtier bathrooms. . Clean it up guys. Join the big leagues.

Wow, what a gem this place is. Everything on the menu sounded so good that we were having a tough time deciding. The owner (Micheal) came by to check on us, found that this was our first visit, and helped us narrow our choices. We were not disappointed! There are many excellent Mexican restaurants in the area, and Blue Adobe Grill ranks with the best. What sets it apart is the Santa Fe style of food that is available in addition to the excellent traditional Mexican fare. The chef manages to bring spicy without necessarily adding heat. The bottom line is - I can't give a description that would do the food or atmosphere justice. This place must be experienced to be appreciated. We will be back without question.

New Mexico Blues Solution
If you find yourself in Phoenix/Scottsdale & missing New Mexican food, this IS the place! Authentic and sometimes inventive takes on green chiles, enchiladas or prickly pear Margharitas are all must tastes. I go there everytime I'm this far from NM to keep from missing the best flavors of the SW.

Recommended by friends and it was so good we went back the next nite. Great margaritas, excellent mexican food, superior salmon caesar salad( glad I chose the small). I will go back any time we come to Phoenix.

This place caught my eye a few times online, and we finally stopped in to try it out. The bean/queso/guacamole appetizer is absolutely amazing, and the restaurant was very helpful for my girlfriend's gluten sensitivities. The dinner was exceptional as well, almost too much to finish- but it tasted too good not to. Definitely recommend trying this out if you are near.

Made a reservation through OpenTable. Received a confirmation from OpenTable. Imagine our surprise when we arrived at the restaurant and found that they don't even take reservations. What's up with that OpenTable? We had no trouble getting a table as it was early and in midweek but that could be very disturbing to someone on a very busy night.
The food was outstanding. Best beans and rice we have had at a restaurant.

Inviting atmosphere and staff
Inviting atmosphere and staff with the charm of a neighborhood pub. I would call it authentic New Mexican food with a twist. The food was great and the portions were generous. We really liked the Lobster Dip. I will definitely go back the next time I'm in Scottsdale.

Great neighborhood restaurant
My two friends and I visited the Blue Adobe Grille for the first time this past weekend. We will definitely be back! The food was very good (we ordered two of the steak dishes and our less adventurous friend ordered a hamburger), the service was great and the ambience was cozy. We had reservations which I recommend because it was very busy when we got there. There was live music which was pretty good, too.

By far the best chips and salsa I've had in Phoneix. I also had the Salmon BLT that was on a sopapilla and it was super delicious. My friend ordered the stacked enchilada and didn't want red or green sauce so they offered her an amaretto mushroom sauce that she said was OUTSTANDING.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great place for "New" Mexican
Nothing is better than a Hatch Green Chili. If you agree, you will LOVE this place. Service staff is very friendly and the food is great. Casual atmosphere and great margaritas.

Recommendation from a local Native
Boyfriend got paired up with a gentleman golfer on our vacation and asked if we liked Southwestern food, Said the owner was great and food too! Suggested the Stacked Enchiladas with a fried egg on top (never had it that way) but thought what the heck. Ashlee was our server (didn't know she was the owner's daughter until the end of our meal when we chatting with her (DAD send her to Florida (Sarasota, She can come visit my spa) She was a great server and very attentive from the beginning. Got chips and salsa at the beginning of our meal. Very good. Prickly pear margarita on the rocks. Pretty pink drink and very good. The enchiladas was delicious. At first wasn't too sure but the flavors really came together nicely. Shrimp tacos delicious.

First time dining here. We sat outside as it was a perfect evening to be outside.
If you like great Mexican & a casual place to eat, this is the place to go.

We held my wife's birthday dinner with 6 guests at Blue Adobe. They couldn't have been more accommodating reserving the big table in the corner for our celebration. The Seafood Enchilada was outstanding and the Margaritas were yummy. The owner signing happy birthday to my bride and the free birthday desert topped off a great evening. Thanks Blue Adobe

It was our first experience at Blue Agave. We invited some friends to join us and they to very pleased with their lunch. The entrees were plentiful but very good. The wait staff was pleasant and efficient. Our overall experience was great. We live in Sun City West and heard about your good food and we were disappointed.

Good, but a little noisy
This was our first time at Blue Adobe Grille, and we really enjoyed the food. The receptionist and waiter were excellent in accommodating our party of six outdoors -- a popular location on this Saturday night. The only down side was the noise level from the live entertainment -- a talented singer, but the volume was much too loud inside and still a bit loud outside. We plan to go back to Blue Adobe Grille on a night when there isn't live entertainment.

Passed this place many times & never stopped.
Every pleasant surprise for lunch this weekend.

Solid Southwest Cuisine
Although the location is not optimum (it is located in a strip mall) Blue Adobe delivers a solid dining experience. I met my mom here for lunch when I was in town based on reviews I've read. We were seated in the outdoor patio which faced the parking lot, but there were som many trees that you hardly knew it. I love Southwest, Mexican and pretty anything spicy. I ordered the three item specialty plate, with a chile relleno, tamale and slow simmered pork in a chile sauce. All three were amazing! My mom ordered the salmon tacos and really enjoyed them, she's a hard one to please. I'd return for dinner and try out some of the other dishes coupled with their specialty margaritas.

Looking for Mexican
We used Open Table for a Mexican Rest we had not been to, very surprised excellent food great service
11/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
We went to Blue Adobe for my mom's birthday. The food was outstanding! The night we went there was a live band which made it difficult to have a conversation at our table, but the atmosphere was fun. Our waitress was great! I definitely recommend this place for the food.
