Do you love Mexican food? I do! If you love Mexican food in a fun atmosphere, you must stop by Adobe Gila’s in Rosemont. They have several locations, but I recently went to visit the Rosemont location and everything was tasty, fun and an overall great experience. It’s a great atmosphere. You oversee the Rosemont greens at the MB Financial Park. It truly is the best spot in the circle. The park hosts live concerts, hockey games and events throughout the year. Adobe Gila is the best view for it all. You take the stairs or elevator up to the second floor where all the fun happens.
Where did Adobe get their name from? Once upon a time…. A long time ago in the old Southwest there lived a Gila (Gee-La) Monster named Adobe Gila. This lizard was known to be the largest, laziest, meanest and only poisonous lizard in the United States. This lizard eventually took shelter in the Coolest Saloon in the town. Word traveled around the country and this saloon, Adobe’s as it came to be called, became very famous. Only the meanest, orneriest, coolest and most courageous men & women ventures into the place. And those who did became famous themselves… if they lived to tell about it! Legend has it that everyone who dared to venture into the joint had a screaming good time. So be brave, pick your poison, kick back & hang out HERE.. cause it’s a desert out there!
It’s an inviting area with extremely friendly staff. It’s the perfect place for a party and they do host parties there! Everyone from the manager, hostess to the server was beyond friendly and extremely attentive. I couldn’t say enough about them! We started with appetizers. We had delicious “Lizard legs,” which are chicken wings. Adobes take on chicken wings Choice of traditional bone-in wings or lightly breaded boneless wings tossed on your favorite sauce: Caribbean Jerk, Habanero Hot, Spicy Garlic, Garlic Parmesan, Southern BBQ, Traditional Buffalo Style. Served with choice of bleu cheese or ranch. We did ½ and ½ and did Spicy and BBQ. I would recommend both sauces. They were both delicious.
You can’t go to Adobe and not have a margarita. The drinks were tasty and fun. The LOBO has Sauza Conmemorativo, Cointreau & Grand Marnier with their own margarita mix. It was very tasty. The MangoRita was a bit too sweet for me, but still delicious.
We had Quesadillas and the CARNE ASADA PLATTER Skirt steak for entrees. The quesadilla was amazing and you can choose to get it stuffed with up to two fillings. The Mexican corn was fabulous. The carne asada platter was served with rice, refried beans and elotes. With plantains and your choice of flour or corn tortillas. We finished off dinner with some delicious fried ice cream. You can’t ever go wrong with fried ice cream. On the weekend nights, the restaurant turns into more of a club feeling, with live music. If you are going to Rosemont, be sure to stop by or make a reservation at Adobe Gila’s. I highly recommend giving them a go. You won’t be disappointed.
