Adobo Grill

We've been talking about going to this restaurant for a long time and finally made it for lunch this weekend. We'd been craving some guacamole so it was a great choice.

They have two locations in Chicago - one in Old Town and one in Wicker Park.

We decided to do a bunch of appetizers to share instead of getting an entree. It was only 11:30 in the morning, I'd only gotten up an hour ago, and my hunger hadn't kicked in yet. We started with the salsa sampler. Had 4 different salsas in the sampler - a pico de gallo (very fresh), chipotle salsa, tres chiles salsa, and the Chef's special. I think the chipotle salsa was supposed to be the spiciest but I was able to eat it without dying and I'm pretty wimpy about spicy foods. All in all a thumbs up for the salsa.

Next was guacamole. I looooove guacamole. And this stuff was good. The chips were good too. Homemade, not too greasy, not too salty.

Next we thought about sharing some tamales. We'd been visited The Tamale Guy last night at the bar for dinner so decided to go with the Empanadas Potosinas instead. Good choice. They were excellent.

Their drink menu looked very good but like I said it was before noon and I'd had quite enough the night before. So we may be back to try some of the delicious looking drinks.

I have been to the Old Town Adobo Grill! My college roommate took me there. It was great.
