Sandwiches are conventional American-style creations (including wraps) with New Mexican accents. You can and should top the burger with green chiles. The burger itself is OK — charred medium to medium-well and simply seasoned, it isn't the juiciest specimen around, but the green chiles help.

The appetizers are uninspired: flatbreads and quesadillas. There is queso, the cheese blended with green chiles as well as pico de gallo and pinto beans. I blame that last ingredient for giving the dip a weird, funky aftertaste. Stick with the guacamole, zippy with lime. The complimentary salsa — featuring "fire-roasted" tomatoes and onions — is thin and bland.

Hidden among the soups and salads is a dish called Tucumcari chicken corn chowder. This isn't quite like any chowder I've had before; it's so thick as to barely qualify as a soup. It could use a dash of extra seasoning (salt, yes, and maybe a little spice), but the corn's sweetness and the green chile's tang work well together. Like the stacked enchiladas, it's a reminder that Adobe Reds can offer something new as well as New Mexican.

I guess since the restaurant has been closed for a few weeks now, this review can probably be taken off of the RFT's main restaurant page! Had a pretty tasty meal there once, but I guess they couldn't make a go of it.

I am sorry my husband and I went with another couple. Guacamole was flavorless, we tried 4 diff flavored margaritas and all were horrible. I know you use fresh lime juice but how about simple syrup or sugar. They were the sourest margaritas I have ever had. And I have had many margaritas form many resturants. And I work in a resturaunt. Enchiladas ok, crab and shrimp taco really good. My hubby had tamales. Don't eat they were so hot he couldn't eat them. He ate my fish taco. All in all, I wouldn't waste my money...

Go with the flatbread (pizzas)... the bbq chicken is great with a lot of zip, the southwest shrimp on a pesto sauce is outstanding. I had the burger last week with green chile and cheese and thought it was one of the best burgers I've had in a long time... they are just settling into their stride now. Stop in from 4 to 7 and get a margarita and a flatbread, you'll love both.

we've been here 3 or 4 times for lunch and love the taco's and flatbreads, both are very flavorful, i didn't care for the enchiladas but everything else has been really great.

My husband and I tried Adobe Reds a few weeks ago. Yeuch! Everything was bland as all getout, the absolute antithesis of real New Mexico cooking. We tried begging for a hotter salsa, but were told, "Oh, ours is HOUSE-MADE!" So what? There are a lot of small, authentic Mexican places here in town that make their own salsa, and where you can routinely get salsa from mild to scorching. I can do better at home with a copy of Huntly Dent's "The Taste of Santa Fe".
