We had lunch here and enjoyed our meal. They have traditional dishes but also some alternatives. I had a “rice bowl” with rice, chicken, cheese, etc. It appeared to be baked in the bowl. It was very tasty. My husband had a traditional pork burrito and liked it very much. The chips and salsa is complementary and good. The salsa... More

I ate the best Ultimate Chimichanga I ever had, it was full of flavor and big. Also the chips and salsa were delicious. The baja platter is also delicious, had one fish taco, one shrimp enchilada and delicious grilled veggies. Margaritas are expensive but delicious. The only downside is the Mangotini I asked, didn't taste like mango at all, it... More

The Carne Asada Rice Bowl is the best Mexican I have ever had. Spicy, full of flavor, loved it. It is not like any flavors I have ever had in combination...And I love all Mexican food! My husband had a giant chimichanga and took half home to the hotel for breakfast the next day. (Ew-but I think he loved it... More

There are plenty of Mexican Restaurants to choose from in Scottsdale, but Blue Agave is the one we always visit when we are in AZ. The food is constantly good. Serve is prompt and efficient. I’m not sure what they do in the kitchen to differentiate their meals from the typical Mexican fare, but a chicken enchilada tastes better here,... More

Both times, Alyssa was our server..she was friendly and very helpful. The margaritas were delicious and the margarita menu had many offerings (I had the 'Jefe' and... More

This very busy restaurant features food from New Mexico and not your typical Mexican fare. While you will recognize the ingredients in the dishes, they are prepared in a different way. The food is tasty and presented well. The Margaritas are fabulous and so is the salsa and chips that keep coming. The only drawback is the service can be... More

This is the worst experience I have had at a mexican restaurant in Scottsdale. Didn't see the waitress for 25 minutes. Food was cold. "Manager" responded by sarcastically saying we have never had a problem in 8 years. I guarantee they won't be around for year 9 unless there is a change in leadership. Cold beer and good salsa except... More

This place is in a strip mall, and you might just pass it by. DON'T. All of their tequilas are 100% agave. This means chances of that nasty tequila hangover are minmal at best. Our server was one of the friendliest we have ever encountered. She kept bringing delicious chips and salsa and was patient in answering all of our... More
