Mariachi @ Adobo Grill, 110 E Washington St, Indianapolis, IN 46204


Every Thursday at Adobo GrilMariachi Sol Jalisciense performs from 6:30-9 p.m.-(which is also 1/2 price margarita night). Conversation is easy as the band plays with no amplification.  I love that Mariachi Sol Jalisciense  are great musicians and true entertainers- they sometimes stroll the restaurant to serenade tables and celebrate birthdays.  The guitarist, Alex, said the band they plays traditional music from Jalisco, Mexico mixed in with other popular tunes (I heard a Mariachi version of “Rocky Top” this past Thursday).  I really appreciate the singing in this band with its robust tone and clean harmonies.

Regarding cuisine, Adobo has gotten some great reviews and is well known for its guacamole, which is prepared by your table, hot or mild as you like it.  I ordered a margarita, and another (I was having such a great time, why not?), and their Chocolate Tamal, which is a bit like a molten chocolate cake cooked tamale-like in a corn husk.IMG_1254

I will definitely be going back to hear Mariachi Sol Jalisciense at Adobo Grill.  Live Mariachi music,  hip lighting and decor, well-prepared food and drink, and friendly staff all contribute to a great night out at Adobo.
