Local Eatery is Worth a Visit!

I dined here after spending the day hiking around Crater Lake (divine!). It was totally delicious. The guacamole was great, but I wished it had been a little spicier. The tacos were great as well. I was wishing there were more tables outside and that it was a little less noisy inside, but that contributes to the character I guess.... More

This new location is just as noisy as the old one. We practically had to yell at each other. Good tortillas, but my fish taco was dry, and the beef one, the beef was dried out, like way leftover. I'll try later again, and just get takeout. Maybe a tamal, LindaMG.

Agave uses all fresh ingredients, and they even make their own corn tortillas. They are working on reducing the noise in the dining room.. I wish they knew that the singular of tamales is tamal.

guacamole was a joke.. price does not match the quality of food in my opinion.. i am Cali chef with 7 years experience.. i love food.. los angeles has great Mexican food from all different regions and styles.. they need to go back to the drawing board..

Agave just moved across the street and around the corner. The new place is only a little larger than the last, but it was a good move. Everyone loves Agave, what's not to love about a great taco and margarita? I wish their menu would expand just a little, and I always need more chips than what they bring to... More

My wife and I decided to go out for a quick meal before attending a concert. We'd not been to Agave since they'd moved, and had no idea how popular this place would be on a Friday night in January. We were able to get the last table which had not been reserved (at around 5.30!) and we were delighted... More

Nothing fancy here, just some solid and creative fresh mex food. Not the kind of food that bogs you down like so many American/mex restaurants. Emphasis is on light and fresh ingredients. Fun to eat outside in the summer if you can get one of the 2 tables. Wish the beer choice went in to the craft area, but there... More

Fantastic Tacos etc. Would recommend to any one wanting authentic Mexican food. Only problem in the summer is parking. Great margaritas to go with the food.
