Excellent Margaritas - Hearty portions

Decor is quite plain in this very popular and moderately priced Tex-Mex restaurant. Very friendly and attentive service. Food received mixed reviews from our group. Chimichangas got a thumbs down for not being crisp and having a rather strange sauce. Burrito was good with hearty portions of... read more

Ate here on a crowded Monday night with 2 kids and were able to get in without a reservation. Fresh, homemade salsa was among the best I've had. Entrees were reasonably priced and very well prepared.

I had a shrimp dish with a garlic spice sauce that was delicious. The nacho chips were good - salsa could have been a little thicker. Waiter was a comedian. Small outdoor seating area but just looks out on the parking lot.

Average food, nothing special. Stopped here based on reviews. I think drinking a few margaritas would've made the dinner more palatable, but since we weren't drinking, it was disappointing.

My husband and I happened upon Fresh Agave on our way out of town. The menu is very appealing and different. I had a fresh cilantro salad with shredded chicken and avocado that was really delicious. My husband had something we'd never seen on a menu before, Chili Agave- grilled yellow peppers stuffed with grilled shrimp. It was oh so... More

Four of us stopped in for a quick lunch. Everyone enjoyed the meal. I had Chicken Enchiladas which were delicious! The homemade salsa and guacamole are wonderful and we had to get seconds. Very good service from an attentive server. It's nice when you don't have to look around to find someone to bring more water, chips, salsa, etc. We'll... More

We had dinner here for the first time and were very pleased with our experience. This appears to be family run with two very young girls doing the seating. Service was great accommodating our various requests to make each dish more to our liking. Food was very good. The place is bigger than it appears from the street, but the... More

Showed up for happy hour and had a few margaritas; watch out for these margaritas they are very strong. I ordered the carnitas and the dish was fresh and tasty. Service was great in the bar and in the restaurant. I recommend this place for everyone that loves Mexican food.

Great lunch with friends. Not your normal Mexican fare. Everything delicious. Guacamole hand made, worth the price. Their salsa is fantastic too. Off the beaten path, very basic decor. A gem.

Second time we ate at Fresh Agave. Was wonderful! The margaritas are to die for, and the food is delicious! I had the steak fajitas and my wife had a shrimp plate. Both were great. My steak fajitas were large enough that I took left overs home for another meal. We will definitely be back again!
