Refreshing margaritas and delicious food

Late night dinner, just wanted something simple and a margarita and El Agave filled that order quite nicely. Many combo plates to choose from and I selected the one with an enchilada, burrito, and chile relleno. Delicious fillings and on the spicy side, which was fine. Service was attentive.

We go to this restaurant over and over and are never disappointed! The staff is friendly and attentive, there is a family friendly vibe and we always run into friends. What's not to like? The food is really good and authentic Mexican. We love the queso and guacamole.

I love El Agave in Warrenton, something I don't say lightly. The food is always fresh, tasty and delivered quickly by a very friendly wait staff. I've sampled a large amount of the menu, but my favorite is the Huevos con Chorizo. It really is outstanding, but I've never been disappointed in anything I've had there. The chips and salsa,...

Really very good - stopped in after two local tastings and knew we needed some food ASAP. I ordered the taco salad and my husband got a lunch special (still available at 3:00 pm, thank you?) and it was there before I could even check my emails on my phone! Both of us loved the food and even had leftovers.... More

Was a decent place, and definitely would feel okay to bring kids, which I liked. Drinks were good, as well as food fine.

The Mexican restaurants in our town have really taken a nose dive of late. I was working in Warrenton for the day and a buddy suggested El Agave for lunch. Blew me away. This is what I've been missing. The service is prompt and courteous and the food is consistently good. The portions are very fair and we never walk... More

My family & I have eaten at El Agave frequently and always receive a tasty meal. The service is fast & efficient. The limitless chips & salsa are a big hit! Good food at a very reasonable price.

We hadn't been here for awhile and honestly couldn't remember why not. Now we remember. The food is below average for a Mexican restaurant. The salsa has actually improved since the last time I was there but still not worth the trip unless all you are going to do is eat chips and salsa. Tippy's Taco is probably a better... More

There are so many better Mexican restaurants in the area. The service was slow and they were out of margaritas on-the-rocks, but they had frozen margaritas (huh??). I think they just didn't have a bartender. The food was mediocre and the fried ice cream was not fried ice cream but a scoop of vanilla on a fried tortilla (that is... More
