Mexican Food in Palm Desert

This was my 1st visit to Fresh Agave in Palm Desert, CA. The couple we were with have eaten there many times before. When we entered the restaurant there was a lively crowd in the bar all having fun . Baseball game on the TV. We were seated right a way. I think all four of us ordered something... read more

Stumbled across Fresh Agave as we were driving by and saw all the people waiting to eat. We decided to try it and we weren't disappointed. Had the fajitas - very good! The staff was very nice. Even loved the harpist playing throughout the restaurant! Will return again!

No matter what you order, if you have an allergy, be sure to mention it to the server. However, it is possible that there may be a language barrier. I have a shrimp allergy. Despite no one at our table eating any shrimp, I had a severe reaction. It is probable that the meat in my dish was cooked on... More

We have been to Fresh Agave on Many Occasions. By Far and Away, the Best Mexican Food in Palm Desert!! One of our favorite places to dine after an early movie! Food is Great. Service is Great. Best Skinny Margarita ANYWHERE!! None of that loud mariachi band, just a very pleasant and very talented Harpist going around playing songs!! Easy... More

This was an excellent find on Highway 111. We stopped in for a late lunch and shared the "tacos for two" - food was plentiful and very good. The best part was the marguertas with fresh agave of course. The specialty marguertas can be pricey and are very potent. Will definitely return on our next visit to Palm Desert.

Haven't been back since Nov. The service was slow (granted it is always busy here and that is why). Food was just ok. Gaucamole was bland. Salsa spicy. Fajitas loaded with more onions and peppers than meat. Only serve 3 small tortillas with it too so you need to ask and pay for more. Won't rush back.

Service is great.It was a bit noisy once the place filled up. Reservations recommended for dinner. So many good Mexican restaurants in the area,but I'd go back for a... More

Dined here last night with a party of four. I had the skinny margarita and others had regular margaritas-both good. Started with guacamole that they mix table side. Great, fresh flavors. Then I had the tortilla soup. It has chunks of pepper jack cheese on top that once melted are delicious. It is not your typical tortilla soup but I... More
