It turned out to be a tough question, with very few good answers: "where can we get a good margarita in downtown Indy?" We got some basic suggestions like some very non-Mexican restaurants, where it would be possible to get a margarita, but probably not a particularly good one. But for the most part everyone seemed pretty much clueless. Kind of depressing, do they not drink margaritas here?????
But on day number 2 we finally got the information we have been so desperately seeking. "Try Adobo Grill on Washington Street". Saved by a stranger!
Wow - what a neat place Adobo Grill is. From the decor to the atmosphere to the cuisine, this was one awesome place tucked right in the middle of a steak and beer kind of town.
I took a seat at the bar and looked over the menu. First margarita that caught my eye was the Maria Felix, which looked absolutely fantastic, but at $50.00 a pop, it just wasn't in the budget this go around, but maybe on a future visit. I'm not adverse to paying good money for a good drink, but you do have to stretch those dollars. So I went with the House Margarita instead which turned out to be a great choice.
With a name like "house margarita" there simply is no expectation of excitement, but the Adobo Grill version really had a unique flavoring to it. Kind of hard to describe, but for sure it wasn't one of those sickly sweet mixes out of a grocery store bottle. The menu didn't list anything earth-shattering in the ingredients, but they certainly added their own twist to the flavoring and it was worthy of a couple of refills.
The food at Adobo Grill was awesome as well! From the salsa sampler, to the chicken enchiladas, I thoroughly enjoyed the meal and of course the margaritas. I hear they have another location in Chicago, and I am headed that way soon. Maybe I will give the Maria Felix a shot!
The House Margarita at Adobo Grill comes in as a 4 limer.
