    Wonderful service and great food! I am gluten free and the waiter made sure not to serve me the margarita or sangria with the Grand Gala(sp) since it is not gluten free. He also made sure I had the gluten free chips. Very attentive and helpful! The food was amazing! We will be back. Thanks!

    The food was great, however not too many options on the menu. Our waitress was polite and professional. The sitting area outside was comfortable but off a busy street, which was affecting the noise level.

    Since we moved to within a block of Adobo Grill's previous location in the 1600 block of N. Wells St. in 2004, we have eaten there a number of times. The food has always been well prepared in served in significant portions. We ate there early in 2020 after they had relocated to their present location on North Avenue. Again, really good food in generous portions. I ordered their carne asada on that visit and was particularly impressed with the dish. We returned to Adobo Grill last evening for the first time since early 2020, expecting to see the same menu and enjoy the food as much as we did during our previous visits. Frankly, we came away disappointed. The carne asada that I ordered came in a smaller portion and was accompanied by a small serving of beans, some unidentifiable tomato-based sauce, and a small tortilla soaked in some other brown sauce. My wife's order of enchiladas came with only a thin sauce covering three enchiladas and without any further accompaniments. As I said above, we came away disappointed in comparison with our previous visits.

    Small, tables close to each other, too noisy to have a conversation. Food (tacos with beef rib) good but not sure why they ruined it by putting shoestring potatoes on it. Service good.

    I was hoping for the kind of tasty Mexican (street) food I was used to getting at most moderately-priced Mexican restaurants, but I was rather disappointed. The carne asada was not very good and definitely not worth the price. The meat was poor quality (on the tough side) and not cooked medium as requested (parts were rare), and the ancho adobo accompaniment on the plate was dry and tasteless. The refried beans were the tastiest thing on the plate, but no rice was served at all. Tortillas had to be requested as well. The guacamole was fresh and delicious, but overpriced for an appetizer. The empanada appetizer was decent, but not great. The tuna ceviche was very fresh and tasty. I was surprised that the menu was so limited. There wasn't even flan on the dessert menu. Service was spotty at best, although the wait staff was very cordial. They did serve me a complimentary tres leches cake (with a candle) for dessert because it was my birthday, and the waiters sang me happy birthday. It was not an unenjoyable experience, but for the food I would not go back again. I think it would be okay for drinks and appetizers, but not for a full meal.

    Ajobo was our go to for fast, quality Mexican food for years. Our recent visit, however, was disappointing. I'm going to chalk it up to covid and we'll return when things settle down but in the meantime the food was bland, uninteresting, super-processed looking and tasting. The restaurant was loud and the service just absent-minded. Our waiter made a good effort with an uninteresting product and chaotic environment. Adobo needs an overhaul.

    Excellent service! They were swamped and had been slammed all day when we got there. Service was a little slower but I did NOT hold it against them. Fantastic waitstaff, I hope that the owners and management acknowledge all they do. Our waiter was zipping all over the place that night! Food was delicious, drinks were great and the guac was also very good!

    What a great dinner! Tequila and a margarita to start, my wife and I had guacamole and salsa with chips as an app. She loved her broiled salmon entree with fresh green beans and roasted potatoes. I opted for two starters as my entree: elite, Mexican corn on the cob, and pulled two pork quesadillas. Both were excellent. Prices were very good and our server Alphonso was terrific. There were so many different items on the menu, we know we’re coming back!
