Blue Adobe Grille's friendly staff throws open the eatery's doors to reveal a menu of piquant Mexican dishes and an eclectic, colorful interior. Start the meal by hanging fangs on an appetizer, including such hunger-stoking offerings as green-chili lobster dip and freshly prepared guacamole. The chili carne adovada snuggles roasted pork and cilantro inside a warm flour tortilla, and double-stacked enchiladas bunk two corn tortillas that, like children at summer camp, arrive smothered in rich chili sauce and a trio of pecan-roasted meats. Adventurous diners can also explore a plate of chili rellenos stuffed with beef tenderloin and cheese or take lobster tamales to the ocean and try to set them free. A colorful interior decorated with stained glass and bold colors sets a cheery mood in which to sip on a margarita, imported beer, or sangria while watching a highlight reel of hilarious hockey brawls.
The Original Blue Adobe Grille
Hidden behind an unassuming A-frame exterior, The Original Blue Adobe Grille surprises guests with colorful decor and a variety of innovative twists on New Mexican cuisine. From appetizers such as green chile lobster dip to entrees such as the Blue Adobe burger cooked over a pecan-wood grill, the restaurant's surprising eats earned them a mention in Jane and Michael Stern's survey of American cuisine, 500 Things to Eat Before It's Too Late. Other menu favorites include shrimp enchiladas stuffed into blue corn tortillas and rims of salt served with margaritas to wash it down. Composed of a blue peaked roof and white stucco siding, The Original Blue Adobe Grille's outside belies its more exciting interior, where stained glass windows and colorful chandeliers illuminate a room filled with reds, oranges, and pinks—a spectrum reflected in the handwritten chalkboard menu announcing the daily specials.
