Hang onto your hats - the margaritas are a wow!

Family dinner on a Monday night - jam packed - make a reservation! Not to worry, the margaritas and nachos kept us very happy indeed. The menu offers a wide variety - with the Diabla (sp?) Shrimp being the clear winner - spicy! The fish tacos, although delicious, were a tad bland but the black... read more

Do not waste your money. I am sitting at the restaurant currently (waiting waiting waiting) for our server to bring the bill. The ceviche was decent - it's is the watery tomato based kind, but wow the carne asada. My mom and i shared this meal, both of us looked at the meat and wondered exactly what cut they used.... More

I came in the summer and had the best Chicken tostada ever. I returned this winter on a visit and saw the line was out the door - but their service is excellent and they quickly seated me. I once again had the best chicken tostada I ever ate. And the margaritas are WOW!!! Fantastic.

This is seriously delicious Mexican food. We went on a Monday night at 6pm and it was already so busy we got one of the last seats in the bar. Always a good sign. The atmosphere was lively and busy in a good way. The margaritas were delicious and you could definitely taste the alcohol. I ordered the Carnitas Guadalajara... More

We had a good experience on our first visit two years ago - this time we brought a friend along. This is not the type of restaurant you go to for atmosphere and quiet conversation. But if you want Mexican food a cut above many desert establishments, Fresh Agave won't disappoint. Delicious chicken tortilla soup to start off. The Carnitas... More

During our recent visit to Rancho Mirage, CA, we received a discount certificate from the resort as part of our check-in package. We decided to try Fresh Agave for lunch. As we pulled up, we could see the restaurant was busy which we took as a good sign. From the moment we were seated, the service was awesome. Numerous waiters... More

We were hoping to have authentic Mexican food, but we're disappointed by the high prices, the noise, and the margaritas. The live music was great; however it was drowned out by the conversation of the customers. The margaritas were disappointing.

Fresh Agave was recommended as being an authentic Mexican food restaurant. It seemed like any noisy Mexican restaurant found almost anywhere. The portions were way too big and we didn't see any Hispanic people while we were there. It was quite expensive and more like a chain without a lot of personality. The avacado dip was tasty, but the meal... More

Having had flight cancelled out of Palm Springs, I was required to stay an extra night in the desert. A local recommended Fresh Agave as best Mexican restaurant in the area. Boy, was he right! I had no reservation and was seated at the bar. Staff was super friendly and engaging. Food was amazing, turning an unwanted stay over to... More

This is THE BEST Mexican food in the desert. When visiting family in Palm Springs, we eat here AT LEAST twice, sometimes 3+ times. We love it that much! Incredible food, fast and friendly service. Just the best. Thanks for your commitment to a fantastic restaurant!
