What do you get when you mix great food, with amazing drinks and awesome friends? The perfect Friday Night! This past Friday was one of those Fridays that you and your friends dream about. A night filled with food, fun, laughter and cocktails.
I spent the evening with a few friends drinking and eating at Adobe Gila’s in Lincoln Park. I honestly can’t think of the last time I’ve had this much fun on a Friday night. Between working on my own projects and my book, I’ve been stuck in the house for the last few months. But that all changed when I decided to take a break and stop by to see what Adobe Gila’s was all about.
All my friends know I’m a sucker for avocados.. I love, love, love guacamole! So when the Nate (the manager) informed me that they make your guacamole table side, I was sold. I was so excited, I had to order the regular and the spicy guacamole.
When I tell you this guac was everything.. the server customized it to my liking and even allowed me to sample it to make sure it came out just right. My guacamole was so good, I didn’t need anything else. I could’ve went home after that, my night had already been made.
In addition to guac we also ordered the Grilled Chicken Nachos and Adobe’s Queso Fundido. What I love about Adobe Gila’s is that the food is served fresh and hot.
Lets just say this… both dishes were devoured in a matter of minutes.
But before we could truly get the party started, the Manager sent over a few drinks for us to try.
From L to R: Strawberry Mango Margarita, Fish Bowl, Cervas Rita
Each and every drink was on point. They were so good that I even drank the Cervas Rita and I don’t like beer! Even if you are just looking for a place to grab a couple of drinks, Adobe Gila’s has you covered. By this time the music started pumping and just like that we went from watching the game to a full on party! Needless, to say my friends and I were having a good time. As if that wasn’t enough, the server brought our our entrees.. I didn’t think I could eat another bite but I had to try it because everything looked so good.
My sister ordered a burger…
And my best friend ordered the tacos…
I ordered steak and shrimp fajitas with a side of elotes; I was too stuffed to eat it all, so I took it home. Let me just tell you, it tasted even better the next day.
If we look happy in this picture, it’s because we are!
Honestly, I was having such a good time I didn’t want to come home.
Overall, my experience at Adobe Gila’s was amazing and my friends would definitely agree. There’s nothing better than a restaurant that combines good food with good drinks. This is the perfect place to go if you are looking to catch the game or just catch up with your friends. They have daily specials and the prices won’t break the bank. I’ll definitely be heading back to Adobe Gila’s soon!
