Stopped here on the way to Florida. Very pleasantly surprised. Great balanced meals with large portions. The margarita I had was amazing! Very reasonably priced. Service was quick and food was hot.

Went to this restaurant with some coworkers. The meals were very typical mexican fare for most of the US now. They tried a few different combinations, but there was nothing that wowed me to the point I would be directing people to go back there.

The food was amazing and the staff was nice! I ordered the mini tostada salad, and my colleague ordered the enchiladas. They were quick to serve and food was hot when it arrived.

I have eaten at several Mexican restaurants. I really enjoyed the food and the service at El Agave. Hope I can visit the FairBridge hotel again soon so I have an excuse to eat at l Agave.

There wasn't anything to dislike. The drinks and food were fantastic! The staff were all friendly and courteous. You can either eat inside or outside on the patio with a view.
