I attend a writer group in the back part if the restaurant where there is a group of larger tables. This time I tried a meal. The menu is quite different than a typical Mexican restaurant so I didn't expect to be thrilled with my choice. But, the zucchini poblano taco plate was really good! Beautiful on the plate and...

As a future registered dietitian and lover of Mexican food, I was super excited to try this place... with so many healthy options on the menu, it did not disappoint! Our waitress was super nice and made a lot of good suggestions to try. I had the tuna quesadilla with a spinach salad and brown rice, while my husband had... More

Adelante's is one of our favorite places to eat healthy Mexican food.The place is wonderfully decorated in colorful and original art work. No televisions on the walls! Yeah! It's quiet and comfortable where you can have a conversation with the people you are with. The staff is very friendly. The owners/cooks will accommodate your requests. They have lots of good...

What a cool place! I was immediately impressed by the creativity and work someone put in to decorating the place in a fun and colorful way. The staff was very friendly. The menu was unique with healthy options. I tried a couple of the home made tamales and they were delicious. I will definitely visit again when I am in... More

I have been wanting to eat here for a while now and I am happy to say that it was worth the wait! This is not your typical heavy Mexican restaurant. Their food is clean with a heavy emphasis on vegetables. I had the combo plate so I could try a variety of food. The fresh guacamole salad and homemade... More

Had lunch at Adelante today with the esposo y Mamá. We loved the atmosphere ! The colors are vibrant, the collections of art and pottery and paper maché are unique, and the service was excellent. My favorite dish was the poblano cheese soup. It was recommended to me by a local, but I was worried it might be too heavy... More

The restaurant is cute, with a fun decor. The food, although it has Vegetarian and "healthy" options is insipid and boring. Long gone are the days where vegetarian is not exiting and full of flavor, unfortunately not in Adelante. Also, be ready to pay cash only. No credit cards accepted. It is not on the pricey side, but some may... More

Adelante serves a healthier version of tex-mex than you'll find at other restaurants, so it may or not be to your taste. If you like heavier (more cheese, more fat, etc.), spicier Mexican food, look elsewhere. Adelante will appeal to the diner that prefers a healthier, lighter (though still flavorful) alternative. Their food is always fresh and well prepared and... More

If you are in the mood for Mexican food, but don't want to go overboard on calories, then Adelante is an OK choice. However, their food lacks the flavor of traditional Mexican dishes, and the menu definitely favors vegetarian diets (although chicken can be added to most dishes). I believe there are far better restaurants within a 1-mile radius (Paloma... More

If you love Mexican food and are a vegetarian then this is the place to go, they DO NOT use Lard, and it still tastes like Mexican. I love the spinach and mushroom enchiladas..they do have a couple of meat options for the none vegetarian..this is a must visit place.
