Adobe Grill Restaurant Review

: Adobe Grill’s setting feels as authentic as its spicy Mexican fare, with its diamond-shaped pavers, colorful tiles and eye-popping hues. Located at the La Quinta Resort & Club, the restaurant overlooks a Spanish courtyard where the strain of live music often serenades diners. Meanwhile, the menu features an array of Mexican favorites, such as carne asada and ceviche. But there are some unexpected surprises, too, including the drunken mahi mahi that is blackened and glazed with El Jimador 100 percent agave tequila (hence the name) and served with potato hash, fire-roasted corn and pineapple jalapeño salsa. Beef sopes highlight shredded beef machaca with lettuce, pico de gallo, cilantro, sour cream and queso ranchero, resulting in a cool and somewhat spicy finish. Guacamole is made tableside as it should be, and margaritas, served in traditional Mexican stemware, are generously salted at the rim; 100 tequilas are at your disposal and readily available to create this cocktail. For dessert, the house-made churro rolled in cinnamon and sugar provides just the right amount of sweetness.
