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.

Ate here this afternoon and ordered Carne Asada. I know its skirt steak,but really how tough can marinaded steak can't be this bad. I couldn't really chew it, but I tried. It was also cooked on a flat grill, not much seasoning, and as I said, tough! The rice, potatoes, and beans were the norm, nothing special. The tortillas were... More

Food was really good and reasonably priced. Service was so-so. But what turned us off was the noise. Between the music and TV's, couldn't carry on a conversation.

There seems to be a Mexican restaurant on every corner, but the best is el agave. Both the locations in mcdonough are great. The food is delicious and atmosphere nice, especially for the incredible value. Salsa is fantastic. We go twice a month!

I would drive past this place and look elsewhere. We sat on the patio, which was nice. Waitress was polite, but made no recommendations as to what was good or bad (I asked her, she shrugged) We ordered cheese dip - it was typical. Salsa tasted like tomato sauce with nothing added (YUCK!) Food came and was edible (It did... More

This, not easy to find Mexican Restaurant, was well worth the effort. By chance, we arrived during happy hour and some ice cold XX Amber beer at a really good price. Our waiter was an older man who was well versed in the food offered on the menu. He did not, however, believe the XX beer was on sale until... More
