Small place right opposite the Yale town station. Pretty crowded during lunch hours. Good selection on the menu. Decent food, fairly good portions and quality at a reasonable price. A quick food place sans frills for people on the go. Service is pretty fast and efficient.

The place was full and there were multiple TV screens showing the World Cup food ball matches. Service was quick and the enchiladas de mole came in a jiffy. It was way too chocolate for me though. The waiters are attentive and efficient. One of the better Mexican joints in Yale town.

This was my first visit to this restaurant and i was really impressed by the food. Everything was really well prepared, tasty and fresh. I definitely recommend the fresh guacamole, the tacos and most importantly the tres leeches cake. The service was good and prices are really good.

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
