This place is reasonably priced, but the food is very average. I'm quite surprised by the recent generous reviews. It is a good place to stop by for some quick, value food, but I wouldn't recommend for dinner out.

Very surprised to read the one or two negative reviews! I've eaten here twice this month, 2 different dishes and both very extremely good. Staff were great with suggestions, portions were acceptable and prices are reasonable Will most definitely be back and highly recommend this place for yummy homemade Mexican food.

Felt like I was eating healthy Mexican food. Ate a lot because the portion sizes are huge and didn't feel stuffed. This place is amazing! Inexpensive, friendly service, and great tasty food. I think this was the best Mexican food I have eaten even from Mexico. You should go! Enjoy!!!

The owners started some years ago on 1223 Pacific Bvd, with 5 tables inside, a small kitchen and a lot of take away, After a while they acquired the closing restaurant at the corner of Davie and Pacific. All is absolutely Mexican and the family cuisine is really great, for an economic price. Owners and waitresses are always happy, attentive... More

We were a family of four seeking a good value restaurant which could accommodate a wide variety of tastes! Our waitress was excellent and gave great advice on our kids selections - and what to avoid! The food was excellent and overall we had a great time.

I've been going to Salsa & Agave for years and really enjoy both the quality of the food and the good nature of the staff. While I have a few favorites on the menu that I always gravitate towards, I've had most of the food there and always walked away happy. The horchata is a really nice drink made of... More

Met up with a colleague just before noon - thank goodness as it was very busy during lunch hour. Salsa and chips to start and enjoyed infamous soup and tacos. Excellent value. Definitely will return soon.

Some of the worst Mexican food I have ever had. The burritos were mostly unflavored rice. The drinks were weak and overpriced. The cost is low but the food has no value so it is not a bargain.

It is a small restaurant, which almost looks more like a take-out place. The margarita was good, but I’m glad it was a drink special for the evening, because the regular price was pricey for what you got. The meal came with a miniscule amount of chips and salsa. I ordered the shrimp burrito…It had some shrimp in it, but... More

Came for dinner on the recommendations of the people working the front desk at our hotel. The place was packed. A short wait and then we were seated. Special price for margaritas:-) The four of us ordered burritos which were delicious. Looked over as other meals were being served in order to plan for our next visit!!!
