When visiting daughter and grandkids would usually take them here for dinner one of the nights. Last time here, Service was reasonably fast and efficient. Margaritas were good but not great. Kids menu was limited but sufficient to satisfy all three (Quesadilas and chicken fingers get it done every... read more

had lunch there the other day with 2 friends. The young waiter was unable to answer many of our questions, and didn't offer to find out what we wanted to know. One friend ordered a chicken quesadilla, which was divided into quarters. Each of the 1st two he tried had sizable bones in them. My garden salad was a pathetic... More

Like any family-owned restaurant, on any day, do not expect consistency. The owner is very willing to listen to customers who offer positive solutions to issues. The food overall is pretty authentic, and I lived for years in Arizona. Their tacos are just wonderful, and their salsa is as well. Their guacamole is truly addicting. I cannot imagine going anywhere... More

I've been going to El Agave for years and it is wonderful. We love their Mexican food and the staff is always friendly. They have an extensive menu and lunch specials. I love their margaritas and they serve plentiful chips and salsa as you wait for your meal. The fajitas are a favorite and the El Agave Special is a... More

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.

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.

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.
