Mexican / Southwestern
My 30 second commercial goes something like this; We are an American Grille influenced by the Flavors of Santa Fe with an emphasis on Pecan Wood and Hatch Chiles from Hatch Valley, NM. How are we different from other Southwestern, New Mexican and Mexican Restaurants? We have the ability to deliver spice that maintains its flavor. We call this culinary magic A Flavorful Spice. Even better, The Blue Adobe Grille is Hatch, Scratch and Local.

Outstanding Service with A Polished Casual Atmosphere, Live Acoustic Music, Indoor/Outdoor Bar with 18 seats, Patio and Separate Dining Area.

Most Popular Dishes: Cruz Kitchen Signature, Chimichilada, Las Cruces Kabobs, Christmas Stack, Carne Adovada, Verde Burro, Lobster Con Queso, Jalla Holla Steak, Last Nights Meatloaf and Santa Fe Bay.

Most Popular Margaritas: Silver Coin, Cucombre, Prickly Pear, Frozen Sangarita and Cruz Caddy.

We are situated on the Foothills of the McDowell Mountains in Central Scottsdale.

Great time. Only thing is that they changed menu and eliminated menu items we loved ,especially the spooning rellenos.

Many people love Blue Adobe. I have a few recommendations for them. The chicken is very good.... but anything chicken is in (enchiladas, chimichanga’s, Burritos, etc.... the chunks of chicken are WAY WAY too big! Flavorful chicken from being smoked over pecan wood, but kind of dry. Also, I feel that there needs to be healthier options. They should try to incorporate some vegetables into some of their entre’s as well.

Very attentive service. Food was delicious, but slightly pricey. Live music from the bar spilled into the dining area and made a relaxing evening much less relaxing. Will request patio seating next time.

Great quality food as always was disappointed they changed to potato patties versus piped potatoes, hopefully it is a supply thing and not permanent. Everything else was great including my coworkers frozen margarita. Glad you were only 12%down for 2020 and weathering the pandemic with increased takeout orders.

This was for a lunch date so it was not as busy as it is in the evening. We had excellent service although this could be because we were one of only two tables being served. The selection of dishes and variety of ingredients will satisfy anyone's appetite. The fact that Blue Adobe has remained in this area is remarkable in itself. Many restaurants close by have come and gone, but Blue Adobe stays the course. The price/value of the menu has changed over the years. You will never walk away hungry, but now you will pay for it (well a bit more than you would have a few years back). You could chalk it up to cost of living, but when you lay down $50 for lunch, you should hope corporate will reimburse you. But, yes, it is in what was North Scottsdale (now geographically center N/S) when I moved there 31 years ago. Prices are a bit higher here for some reason. I hope Blue Adobe continues to serve it's nouveau Mexican delicacies for years to come. It is a great down to earth neighborhood restaurant.

Their signature margaritas we're two for one which was excellent but they seemed a little weak as in maybe no tequila. I'm sure there was some in there but it was hard to discern. Overall we really like this place and will return but if they're having the margarita special we may pass on that. Also, if they say the food is spicy trust me, it's spicy so be prepared.

lobster con queso has been revised since reopening and is still too cheesy, doesn't need the peppers, and needs more lobster. Go back to orig recipe you had been using for years
please!!! Have ordered twice since reopening, will not order again if stays the same.
steak slightly under cooked. Service was excellent and thanks for the large birthday desert.
