Adobe Grill, La Quinta

Adobe Grill at the La Quinta Resort came highly recommended.  We couldn’t wait to eat there after all the praise, so we didn’t waste any time. Table for 2 please.

The best part of the meal was the tableside Guacamole. The ingredients were so fresh, the avocados perfectly ripe… what was their secret?  After speaking with the server, he explained that the restaurant has its own garden. At the end of our meal Chef Stephen Strickland was happy to show us.  Wow!  What Chef does that on a busy Saturday night?  Now that is truly over the top customer service!  I was impressed.

For our entrees we ordered Chicken Mole Oaxaca and the award winning Tamales.  Both were fabulous and the Tamales were the best I have tried to date.  I highly recommend them!  After our full meal the Chef guided us on a tour of the garden and resort grounds as promised.  I have never stayed at La Quinta but that will definitely be changing on our next trip out. The landscape is beautiful and I feel like we’re in another world.  This resort is perfect for the whole family, even our four legged friends are welcome here! We will be back.
