Like many San Juan Capistrano watering holes, this one embraces local history. Located across the street from the home of venerable Orange County justice of the peace Richard Egan, El Adobe features a cozy room to get a cool drink. The interior has the feel of an authentic turn-of-the-century adobe, with its plaster walls and exposed wood-beam roof. The Adobe also pays homage to Southern California history by hanging a Mexican Tricolor next to the Stars and Stripes. The ornate wood bar offers a full complement of wines, liquors and beers, the latter served in large schooners. The favorite Mexican restaurant of el Presidente Richard Nixon. Stop by the presidential booth, and order the President's Choice (guacamole, chile relleno, chicken enchilada, beef taco, Spanish rice and refried beans).
