Wanting some great fajitas, we were directed to Agave Maria's. The chips were crispy and fresh, the salsa clumpy and hot but the fajitas were so saucy that it lost something in translation. I did enjoy the beans and made a meal of the beans, guacamole and sauce.

My wife and I arrived Ojai in the afternoon and stopped in to Agave Maria's for a light lunch. We wound up sharing a nacho plate and each having iced tea.

Loved the food and margaritas. The food wasn't too spicy while the drink had a major kick (made with fresh ingredients). The price of the food wasn't too bad; the drinks were a bit pricey.

Agave Maria's is a nice inexpensive place for lunch or dinner. The outdoor patio is wonderful with plenty of heaters & a fireplace on chilly nights. The food is consistently great and the service is always speedy. Try the Pixie Margarita!!

Our first day in Ojai we had lunch at this restaurant. The food was excellent and service good. Each serving was more than ample. Located just off Ojai Ave., the main street through town.

We went to Agave Maria's twice during our time in Ojai. Enjoyed sitting in the spacious patio area under umbrellas on a hot day drinking margaritas (highly recommend the pixie margarita). We split the fajitas, chips and guacamole and were full. Enjoyed the music on Sunday afternoon.

Food was very good. They also make excellent Margaritas. Patio furniture could use a bit of updating.
