If you are looking for Tex-Mex food, this is the place to go. However if you are looking for Mexican food you will be disappointed. The menu has a variety of dishes with Mexican names, but again you won't get Chiles rellenos or Tortilla soup, or Pozole, but their own version of the dishes. Some are good, others mediocre. They...

We found this Mexican restaurant on Trip Adviser when we were looking for a place near the Nixon Library. It is excellent, unusual menu, delicious food, present in a very appealing way. I can see why it's the #1 recommended restaurant for Yorba Linda on this site. Recommend it 100%!

Love this place. We eat here at least once a week. The food is delicious. . .consistently well prepared and served piping hot. Have not had a bad meal here ever and we have lived in the neighborhood for 10+ years. They have a great catering service as well.

Consistent quality of food and service. This is a good place for business lunches; the restaurant is quiet enough to have a conversation and presents itself well to focus on business work. The entire menu is good but I prefer the burritos. Cost is average and reasonable.

We go here quite often. They have great chips and salsa as well as entrees. I love the El Nido lunch special... I get it every single time because their chicken enchilada is my favorite. My husband loves the carnitas entree. The detail to presentation and also the service here is always excellent! Great local spot!

We have been going to the Blue Agave for years. The food is consistently delicious and high quality. The prices are excellent for the quantity and quality of food. The service is terrific and the servers friendly. The drinks are well-made and they have a great variety. We highly recommend the Blue Agave.

We have been visiting Blue Agave for over 17 years. We have NEVER had a bad experience. The food is exceptional - you can tell they use a higher quality of product for all their meals (as compared to other southwestern/mexican food restaurants). The chips and salsa are amazing. Chips are fresh and light. The salsa has just the right... More
