Well, where do I start. I ate here about 6 years ago and today. I forgot that this place was not worth stopping at or considering again. The staff was friendly and polite. However, they were inefficient. The food was ok, but certainly not spectacular. I hope that I remember in a number years not to eat here again.

I like going to the Adobe during lunch, they have combo lunch specials that include your soda in the price. It's affordable and good food. They also have mariachi certain nights.

El Adobe used to be very good and always very crowded. That is no longer the case. My last review was in August of 2014 and I stated then I would never return. But I wanted Mexican Food and it was after 7:30 and we just didn't want to drive all the way across town to our now "usual" Mexican... More

My first couple of visits to this restaurant were a bunch of years ago and positive, so I thought I would return on another recent overnight stay in Bakersfield. I was glad I went. The staff were friendly and the service was excellent. The restaurant however, was very quiet when I was there--being late afternoon. My meal was excellent and... More

We decided to try El Adobe again to see if anything had changed. Well nothing has changed. My husband thought his food was good but I was disappointed. I wanted to try the fish tacos which I love at over Mexican places. I should have read the description totally NOT the same. I was brought 3 rolled up flour tortillas... More

Not bad, not great. Seems to be a typical average quality Mexican restuarant. In our area, it appears we have a Mexican restuarant on just about every street corner.
