Casa Adams has a large menu, as is typical of many Mexican restaurants here in San Diego. What's nice about it is there isn't much on there that's over $9.00, which makes eating there a lot easier in these trying times.
The garlic shrimp actually came with the steak you see in the photo below the flautas. Swimming in a buttery, garlicky, yummy sauce, they were cooked perfectly...not a hint of rubbery-ness! The steak was cooked perfectly as well, medium rare as asked for. It wasn't strongly seasoned, but with the garlicky shrimp, that was a good thing.
My daughter ordered her stand-by, a carne asada burrito. Filled with tender, flavorful chunks of meat, surrounded by guacamole (she always refuses the pico de gallo), it was all wrapped up in a hot, grande!, tortilla and served with rice and beans. She thought it a good version, and she would know.
The dish that got the most oooohhs and aaaahhhs? Without a doubt, the shrimp and avocado salad! It was a site to behold, and the picture doesn't really do it justice. It was big and bold and generous, for sure. It came with an avocado cilantro dressing on the side, which my brother in law seemed to take great pleasure in dipping his shrimp in! With all this good food and good service, it turned out to be a very nice family meal indeed.
