Restaurant Review: Adobos
Feel like eating Mexican food today? Want something tasty but without the wait and cost? Want to support a local business similar to Chipotle or Pancheros? Well, you’re in luck. Adobos is the place for you.
Adobos is run by Jaime Salazar and his wife, Flor. When Jaime arrived in Dubuque, he noticed a need for a place that could be quick and fresh where people could grab lunch. Salazar is originally from San Luis Potosi, Mexico. During his time in the United States, he has studied culinary arts at Highland Community College, and also has over 18 years of experience cooking Mexican food here and in the tri-state area.
Let’s dive into the food! Adobos is well known for the express burrito bar. When you walk in, you can chose from a burrito, a burrito bowl, nachos, taco salad or just tacos. Next, it’s time to pick what you like inside. For meat lovers, you have choice of bistec, barbacoa, pollo or carnitas. They even have veggie lovers covered with their fresh fajita veggies. From there you can add your typical and not so typical toppings, which may include the popular queso option. As an added bonus, you get chips and salsa included. Grab a fountain drink and call it day.
Adobos also offers a full dinner menu and drink menu starting at 4 p.m. The drink menu includes margaritas, daiquiris and bottled beers from both domestic and import selections.
You can’t forget dessert! Grab a scoop of their delicious fried ice cream to end off the meal right.
Adobos is a Mexican grill found here in Dubuque on Main Street, and is open from Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m.-8 p.m.
