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.

This was our first time to Blue Adobe Grill. We were pleased with the menu selections - a wide variety to choose from. We especially liked the unique spin on certain items, like the shrimp stuffed chili relleno with mango salsa. The food was fresh, cooked perfectly, and very tasty. Our server was attentive. The only thing I could complain about (down to a 3 star rating) was the pricing. Our meals were $18 and $21, which I consider a bit high for lunch. Overall, it was a very good experience, and I would return again.

We just love the creative dishes here but a special shout out goes to the beef stuffed chili rellenos. Always fantastic and the pork adovada shouldn’t be missed.

Service was very good. Food was good. But the margaritas were poor. I got the house margarita on the rocks. Guess I should have known better when it’s called the Killer. First sip was like flavored water. Used the straw to get to the bottom and it was room temperature. Waitress said they don’t chill the mix and as for the lack of flavor, she informed me I got the house margarita.
My wife got an upgraded margarita, but had the same results. Warm on the bottom. It did have a better taste but still weak. We didn’t order anymore drinks after that.

Good little restaurant. Went there for the outdoor dinning and live music but live music is inside. Door was good except for the brisket which was supper dry. Drinks were tasty and service was good.

We ordered the nachos and the bowl and both were mediocre at best. The chicken in the bowl was extremely dry and the nachos were almost inedible due to the spice and the dirty smoke flavor of the meat. The waitress was very nice and the outdoor seating was quite nice.

A special send off for a friend, but we often enjoy this place! It wasn’t very busy, but clearly they’re understaffed (like most restaurants)-service was quite slow. Still love this place-great margaritas, chips and fire roasted salsa and the garden enchiladas are a new favorite! Southwest chicken pasta and tenderloin rellenos are also a great option!

We had a 6:00 reservation. When we got there a manager told us to Oder quickly because they were ready to close, the waitress kept bugging us to order, because the cooks wanted to go home. A sad experience.

Very disappointed. Our server did not wear a mask and when we asked her to wear one...she said she would have to go and find out if she had one to wear. In the end, a different server with a mask was sent to take care of us. She was very good. My husband's meal was tough and they took it off the bill which was nice.
Servers need to wear masks in the restaurant. I will not go back. Food was good but I did not like their attitude about masks.

Great to celebrate Mother’s Day on the patio at our new favorite neighborhood grill. Although Blue Adobe has been in business for seventeen years, we just discovered it near our new home.

The lobster tamale was a great combination of sweet and spicy. I will definitely order that again.

Great way to spend Cinco de Mayo. Our group of golfers all enjoyed their menu choices. Lobster queso dip and the meatloaf were especially good. Friendly concierge insured that we got seated promptly with our reservation. Portions are generous even for the bigger eaters. Will return again.

This was a special birthday for my wife. When I asked where she wanted to go to celebrate, she immediately said "the Blue Adobe".
We are longtime customers, dating back to the original restaurant in Mesa.
The menu is outstanding.
The food quality and consistency is nothing short of amazing.
The staff is always friendly and attentive.
We can't thank Michael, the owner, enough for making this a very special occasion.
