It was a Sunday afternoon this summer. I shopped at a local boutique nearby, then with a friend strolled into Adobo Grill, as I had done on other occasions, to have a Margarita -- which is quite good.
However, this time I walked out and left my shopping bag with its contents at the side of my chair on the floor, just behind the reservations desk. The next morning, I called the restaurant, told the manager-of-the-morning about my package and its contents which she verified. She said the items would be in the manager' s office and would be given to me when I came in.
The following day, on arrival at Adobo Grill, the chief manager, had the bag brought to me with one item missing and another damaged. When the previous manager was called, she denied her confirmation of the contents -- now, ""she could not recall what she had said to me.""
The chief manager stated he could vouch for the honesty of all his staff and felt the present contents of the shopping bag was what was there originally. The manager was indifferent and made no effort to get to the truth or to satisfy me, the customer -- which now I am not longer!
I'm Mexican and from Texas and used to plentiful Mexican restaurants. It's taken me some time and running around town but I finally found a place that has authentic food that is packed with tons of flavor. I can't recommend just one item since everything I have tried has been authentic, flavorful, and priced well for the portion you get. Don't miss the guacamole! The only improvement is needed on the tortillas.

I almost do not want to leave such a good review because then it will get too crowded - but seriosly this is the best margarita I've had in this city so far. We've only tried a few appetizers, but the service is always great and what we've had has been wonderful! We're going back for a full dinner real soon!

We experienced a very expensive but lackluster dining experience Friday Jan. 18th at the Lombard Yorktown location. Very very expensive for the small portions. Taste was nothing special either. Better off almost any other restaurant. Will not return. All 4 of us were VERY dissapointed.

Adobo is a great place to start off the night. Great guacamole, tasty margaritas, good food. It is a festive place that is a step (or two) above your typical mexican joint. The tequila flights amke for a fun evening as well-- be careful! Great place for groups.

I was told they have the best guacamole before I went, and I have to agree it is the best I have had. As a plus they make it fresh right in front of you. The tortilla soup was a little spicy but very good. Everyone else I was with enjoyed their meals. Good drink selection too. If you are planning on going to Second City for the night I suggest eating dinner here.

We are frequent diners at Adobo and find the food to be very tasty and fresh. Typically we will just order a bunch of the app's and some spicy gucamole and skip the entrees. The appetizer menu is large with great variety and interesting items that you don't find at most Chicago Mexican restaurants and the portion sizes are great to share. This makes for a great, fun meal for lunch or dinner and of course you must have the margaritas. One of the freshest in town. Try it, you'll like it! It's not just tacos, burritos and enchiladas at Adobe Grill! Desserts are quite tasty too if you have a sweet tooth.
