Up until recently I had never been to Taco Adobe in Orange, even though many of my foodie friends have raved about it (check out OC Mexican Restaurants review), . I had however ate at the previous restaurant that used to be housed here on Lemon by the name of Costa Azul. For those that are wondering there is some relation to the Taco Adobe in Santa Ana, but I’m not sure what the exact connection is today. I have had lunch at the Santa Ana site back in 2008. We decided to catch an early dinner after hitting the Orange Farmers Market one Thursday in May, so we could relax at home the rest of the night.
Mrs. DanGarion ordered the Chicken Enchiladas, but substituted red sauce on it instead of green sauce. She isn’t a fan of salsa verde. She really enjoyed the enchiladas and said she would have them again. I had a taste and thought they were very good. I had the carnitas plate, which is my typical go to meal when I want to try a new Mexican place. The carnitas came out steaming and juicy and really hit my cravings. The chips and salsa were delicious as well. We both agreed that our beans and rice (mine traditional and her’s black beans with white rice) tasted good and fresh. Overall it was a really solid meal and we would definitely come back and try some more of their delicious grub.
Service was nice and attentive. It was warm that evening and not having air conditioning inside made it seem stuffy, so we ate outside, so be ready to possibly with that if you like nice cool air conditioning air.
Visit on 05/13/10 in the early evening.
