I do not know this to be fact, but from what I hear fresh agave was opened by the employees of another Mexican restaurant on El Paseo.. And let's just say we have not been back to the other one a on El Paseo since we found fresh agave.. Do yourself a favor and get the queso with terrezo (sp?)... More

Tableside guacamole is excellent. Margaritas are serious to say the least! My wife asked for extra lime juice.....of course she was driving! We enjoyed combo fajitas - steaming hot....and enchiladas - both were wonderful. Convenient location right off 111 - easy to find and park. Casual place with good service.

We went to a Mexican restaurant here in Indian Wells, California for about 20 yrs. We thought it was the best! Last year Fresh Agave opened in Palm Desert, CA. Their Mexican food is authentic and is now our "go to" Mexican restaurant. The wait staff is welcoming, polite and superb. They make guacamole "table-side", it is so very good.... More

in my experience it is difficult to mess up Mexican food on the whole ...and Fresh Aqave does not mess it up either but the Soppas are softball sized pillows from heaven with ice cream it is the bomb. enjoy!

We had an excellent meal with some helpful folks. Saturday night and they were busy, but we did not wait long. Service was speedy (we did not feel rushed) and the food was plentiful (a complete leftover lunch).

We ordered too much but loved the flavors. The house margarita is very strong, so they brought some extra drink to dilute it and we found it much better. The guacamole is freshly made at the table and as it should be. We loved the ceviche and the chili rellenos. Service was spotty and they charged us for someone else's... More

We travel there every year and have always made this a must do dining. No more! The service was slow, the margueritas were strong but very tasteless. They were under construction but it appeared that they had stopped working on the project so even the atmosphere was unappealing. None of is enjoyed our experience, We will not return.

Chillis Rellenos are not on the menu, but the waiter said "we serve them" so my wife and I shared one order - almost too much for lunch - and superb! We sat inside in the bar area, which was jammed with lunchtime customers. The restaurant has expanded- lots of tables and room outside the bar area. Also limited but... More

veggie fajitas were outstanding, sizzling hot, caramelized onions, peppers, broccoli - delicious. The service was great with multiple servers checking in, fast response to every request and fresh food up quick even on a busy night. The crowd was lively bordering on boisterous. We will be back.

As a suggestion from friends, and being in the area, I went to Fresh Agave for lunch. I had the toasted and my daughter had the calamari tacos. I like the fact that they had three different kinds of beans to chose from. The service was fast and the meal was good. Price was good also. If you are in... More
