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.

Our table was reserved but occupied by other guests who, the hostess told us, had been there a few hours. Finally got another table. The server was good. The food was bland, the guacamole was bland and we were totally disappointed in this experience! We were entertaining out of town guests and were embarrassed at our dinner selection. We were here a year ago and it was amazing.
Not sure what happened but we will not return. Your menu looks amazing and markets flavorful food but that was not our experience.

They were late seating us and the service was not particularly attentive, but the food here is always excellent. I hadn't visited since the pandemic began. I hope the experience is better next time. The food is too good to be spoiled by ancillary issues.

1st evening in Scottsdale and we were looking for something near our timeshare and regional/Southwest. The food was delicious and of large enough servings to box up most of what we had on our plates to bring back for lunch the following day! Hubby had Ranch #47 red and I had the Chip Chop salad with shrimp. The Black Pomarita was excellent also😋. Very recommend. 👍

Our party of three had a nice evening on the patio. The shredded beef in enchiladas was a little dry, but the meat loaf, crab cake Louie, and bean queso were perfection. We will definitely return!

Had the spoonable Pablo crusted color rellanos. Very good with tons of cheese and good firm chilies. Beans were also very good. Chips were thin and crisp with tasty thick salsa. All in all an excellent meal. One comment, though. The restaurant says it is a Santa Fe Grill. If so, they should have sopapillas.

Are you here once before when we came for a visit to Arizona found the food was outstanding then and still now service was wonderful they had live entertainment. It’s not the typical Mexican food the menu is huge with so many choices for all kinds of pallets. Have a great dinner with family and friends

The food was good. Nothing bad about it. Nothing great. I had their signature dish and the family had some other steak dishes. Portions were huge. Drinks were strong (extra points for this). The guacamole was really good.

It took me a couple drinks to get over the leathery smell. Most of the tables are covered in leather and it definitely overpowered the food smell.

Would probably go back if it was closer but more than likely won’t because it’s a 40 minute drive for us.

My husband and I frequent Blue Adobe 2-3 times a month. The owner always visits to ensure everything meets our expectations. We want to continue supporting this restaurant and other Arizona establishments. There are many challenges with running a restaurant -- much less in this COVID environment. Quality food and consistent service. Good menu and right price point.

1. The music wasn't energetic ... it was too loud.
2. We have dined at Blue Adobe several times and always enjoyed it. This experience was not the same. The food was subpar right down to the Sopaipillas which were under-cooked and so very doughy.

Won't be back any time soon.

I was so hopeful that the food would be good at least. I can’t say that here
Service very slow. Food was not that good at all. The lobster cheese dip was hardly any cheese and the lobster was old and tough. Crab cakes were mushy. The margarita was so bad I had to return it, I will never go back.
