Nice place for lunch

I stopped here for a late lunch after a business meeting in Hartford. We had missed the busy lunch crowd and was able to get a meal that was very tasty, very quickly.

Love to visit this place when in Hartford. Super friendly staff. Good bar drinks, and Mexican food that is like nothing I have eaten anywhere else. It is sooo good it keeps me coming back time after time.

The food is very simple, yet carefully selected and fresh ingredients combined with the right preparation make this truck a best in class.

This place was hit or miss for me. First time we went it was pretty good. We went several times after that and each time service and food was worse and worse. Waitstaff apathetic. One time we were shooed out so they could turn the table over. Drinks are pretty good.

I eaten here twice during a week I visited Hartford. The chicken quesadilla for lunch had a great taste. The second meal I had taquitos, rice, and beans and also was impressed even at 11pm. The food is a bit expensive for the portions served but the flavor and service is spot-on.

We have been here several times and the food and drinks are fantastic. There isn't a lot of seating and it gets a little crowded but if you are looking for a fun downtown spot with authentic food and quality drinks, this is a great Hartford staple. The street tacos were our favorite entree, loaded with flavor and we tried... More

Agave is my favorite Mexican restaurant! Their salsa is the best I have ever had and their chips are homemade and come out warm. They make table side guacamole which is also great to share. The menu offers a variety of Mexican items, but my favorite are the chicken adobo tacos and ensalada tostado which is served in a tortilla... More

I ordered enchiladas and house margarita. The food was good but not great. Service was excellent and the place was charming. I would definitely try again
