Alpharetta: Adoba Taqueria

Adobo is one of those sorts of places you take the family to in the evening to unwind.  The decor is what seems to be the default for mid-range restaurants in Alpharetta, namely brick.  As I was leaving, the musician was setting up, which is a nice activity for a Friday evening.

The taqueria tag in the name is somewhat misleading.  This isn't a casual, fast food place, but a full restaurant with plated meals.  They also have more than just Mexican food, so there should be choices to satisfy a variety of tastes.

The salsa was pretty good.  It had some bits of pepper in it that had real bite, but was mild enough overall to satisfy most people.  I ordered one of my standard Mexican dishes, the chicken mole, for my main course.  The chicken itself arrived in fairly small, relatively artless pieces.  The sauce didn't have much of an identity.  Overall, I think this is a good place to take it easy some evening but that's primarily due to the atmosphere.
