Returned after a year absence on a crowded Friday night. Prompt, friendly service and inspite of having only two servers covering a full dining room all our needs were attended to.Our orders were properly prepared, hot and very tasty.Authentic Mexican food a cut above the chain restaurants. 6 or 7 visits with no disappointments.

Had lunch yesterday with my wife in this little Mexican Restaurant. Food was very tasty! green Chilaquiles with eggs were terrific. a bit spicy but very good. my wife's chicken enchiladas were also good. The place is nicely decorated with photos of the Teotihuacan culture (a pre-Columbian city located in the State of Mexico) and vivid colors. I was surprised to hear they have been there 10 years. I probably drove by hundreds of times and never saw it. Love the artwork on the walls!

Great food at fair prices. Excellent authentic Mexican food at reasonable prices. Try the Vampiro and the shrimp cocktail. Excellent salsas as well as they serve a great chipotle salsa that is the best I have tasted.

Tacos Gonzalez

Reviewed By TrekkerOH2017

We visited Indio, California for a few days in November. We arrived close to midnite. On the way back to the airport, we were thinking about eating something lite. Our google search found Tacos Gonzales and we decided to venture there.We had tacos only, pastor, carne asada and chorizo. They are served in fresh, small size corn tortillas topped with onion and cilantro. Each bite was a trip to heaven and back. The staff was extremely professional and friendly. The waiting time was minimal.The next morning, before heading to Joshua Tree National park we made another stop for late breakfast. This time, my picky eater, fast food-eating 10 year old was hungry and ordered chicken tacos (no onion). The expression on his face was priceless after he took the first bite.He then started asking for Tacos Gonzales for every single meal until the day we left.I highly recommend you try this place, but warn you that it may be a little addictive.

My wife and I came here for dinner last night. The food and service were both above average. We were greeted and taken to our seats when we walked in. Our server Victor took our drink orders right away and before he had a chance to bring us our drinks another person brought us fresh chips and salsa. The chips were not salty and tasted fresh and the salsa had a fire-roasted tomato base and had some bite to it but was not overpowering and was quite good. My wife had to seafood fajitas and I had braised short ribs. The food is made fresh when you order and from where we were seated we could watch them prepare our food. Victor came by a couple of times to let us know that they were working on our order. It was worth the wait for the meal my ribs were very tender and had an ancho chile base which was very flavorful and easy to eat. The portion size was just right for us. We had the Tres Leche for desert with our meal and it was the best that I have ever had. We will going again next time I want a great meal for a special occasion. Dear Charles M,I am thrilled that you had the opportunity to discover and enjoy an incredible dining experience at Adobe Grill. Our talented chef, restaurant manager and the entire staff have created an exceptional atmosphere and menu that is a favorite of our guests, our Greater Palm Springs family, and visitors beyond. We look forward to welcoming you back for more delightful dining. Sincerely,Marco FoelskeResort Manager

Casa Mendoza Restaurant

Reviewed By Robert M

It is the best to have a reservation during the "high" season as Casa Mendoza Restaurant is generally very busy from December through April. The owner Ramiro Mendoza is a hands-on owner and long term restauranter. We have dinner here several times during the season for the last few years. Casa Mendoza serves the best "skinny" Cadillac Margarita. Angel, JP & their bartender colleagues do a great job. Entrees are tasty, delicious and consistent in quality. Generally service is very good.
