Adobo Mexican Restaurant

On Monday night, a few girlfriends and I met up at the new Adobo Mexican Restaurant which has now taken the place of the old Our Best on Bardstown Road in Fern Creek. It looks exactly the same, just with a new paint job and different decor on the inside. I’m glad we chose it as Mexican restaurants are usually a safe bet for me as a vegetarian and the location was good for all of us to meet up in the middle.

The restaurant wasn’t too busy when we walked in and were seated right away. As we walked back to our table, we spotted the “Guacamole Bar” which I wish I had gotten a photo of. Basically, they make their guacamole fresh right when you order it. We couldn’t resist!

This appetizer was $8 but I swear, it was enough for the four of us and then some! Totally worth it too, I’m not kidding when I say this is the BEST guacamole I have ever had. It was fresh, creamy and even a bit spicy. Sorry, Qdoba, you have been replaced!

Like many Mexican restaurants do, they offered 99 cent margaritas on Mondays, so I decided to try one, you know, to review for the blog ;-)


It was really tasty. I usually don’t do “on the rocks” but I tried it because the frozen version was $1.99, which isn’t bad either but I thought I’d pick the cheap one this time ;-) I’m glad I did because I think I might like it better this way!

I forgot to take a photo of my entree but I ordered the veggie burrito with no cheese or sour cream. The vegetables in the burrito were surprisingly tasty and included zucchini, broccoli, onions, peppers and beans. It came with a side of rice.

Sometimes without the cheese and sour cream the dish can suffer (because they don’t try to do anything else with it) but this one did not. There was a nice garnish of lettuce, onion and spices on the side that I spread over it, plus a few dollops of guac :)

I enjoyed it very much, took the other half of it for lunch today and it was just as good reheated. It wasn’t the best Mexican restaurant I have ever been to but for a new place in a city with so many restaurants, it did stand out to me. The guacamole bar was really unique to me, I had never seen that before.

The prices were good too. For my entree, plus the drink, plus half the guacamole (me and a friend split the cost for the table) my bill came to $15 and I had leftovers so you figure that for 2 meals, not bad :)

We’ve all been bragging about it to our other friends and definitely want to go back soon. Although the veggie options are not plentiful, I’d be perfectly fine just eating the chips & guacamole!

  1. That does sound good! I live in Louisville as well. Do you know of anymore bloggers in this city?

    • I sure do! I need to update my Blogroll page, but there are a few I know here in Louisville and there are also a ton more in Kentucky outside of Louisville. I never thought I would know so many! :)

  2. We’ll have to check that place out since Mexican is probably our favorite food. I love fresh guacamole, Tanya has a great recipe. On the rocks is definitely the way to go :)

    • I will have to have her share her recipe with me or make it for me some time. I am a guacamole aficionado! You are right, on the rocks is so much better, I couldn’t believe it :)

    We took my dad here for a late father’s day last Thursday. A total of five in our group. “My husband” thinks he is mexican when dinner time comes, and he is very picky. This place was AWESOME! Even for the mexican critic in the group loved it. Two margarittas kicked my butt! The price was amazingly low, five entrees and 10 margaritta’s only $72.00…not bad at all!

  4. We just ate there tonight and was pleasantly surprised. We really liked it and will go back! I hope they do well.
