I visited Fresh Agave with my wife while vacationing in the area. The service was great and the food was fabulous. I had a three item combo (enchilada, burrito, tamale) and all were great but the beef burrito...to die for!

Loved the local vibe, the menu (especially the fish tacos...mmmm) but you seriously have to brace yourself for their margaritas. We heard they were delicious, and they didn't disappoint. Several different options and fresh, fresh, fresh ingredients, but warning: they come with a serious kick. A very animated evening! We'll be back...but we'll train for it next time (wink).

Super service, clean and friendly - and the food is excellent. A real gem in the desert and would certainly recommend it to Valley visitors.

The food is amazing, and decent pricing... it's more authentic then other Mexican restaurants in the area. It's only downfall is its small size compared to how busy it can get and it's limited staff.

Nice place, very small. If you're not a local staff is less friendly but good is good. Prices are very reasonable. Overall we would go back!

Trust me. I know my Mexican food. Grew up in CA eating the best of the best. My mother-in-law still makes her tortillas from scratch with a mano and metate. The food here is excellent. You can tell the quality of a Mexican restaurant by the simple things like rice, beans, and salsa. Everything here tasted homemade. My only regret... More

Never a bad meal in here and the Margaritas are fabulous. Friendly family business and having tried most of the Mexicans in the valley this has to be the best. Good value and great fresh food. Try the fiesta guacamole it's dynamite! Can't wait to go back.

This is a gem. A real bargain amidst too many over priced Paseo area eateries. Small and a bit off the path, but worth the find. The menu is extensive and the food very authentic. The bar is small, noisy, and understated, but that's what the real Mexico is all about. Awesome margaritas. The food will not disappoint. Very reasonable... More

We tried two of the house specialties and were very impressed. The shrimp was perfectly cooked and the pork was juicy and flavorful. Tortilla soup was also terrific. Service was attentive but not obsequious.
