I was very impressed by the staff of this restaurant and would have rated it higher but the food was a bit bland. El Agave seems clean, pleasant and friendly. The food is probably above average for this area but not great. I asked the waiter for a recommendation and he suggested the carne asada plate. The meat was pretty... More

We received excellent customer service and our waitress went above and beyond with suggestions for menu items that could be made gluten free. They do not have a gluten free menu. Our food came promptly. I tried their seafood enchiladas and would not have them again as seafood tasted old and definitely had a strong seafood smell. My husband had... More

El Agave's other location is in Sudden Valley and as a resident of Sudden Valley, we're thrilled that they are here. Food is consistently good and portions are large. Margaritas are great! Staff are friendly and welcoming and service is fast but never rushed. The setting is beautiful looking out on the golf course. El Agave is in Gate 2... More

Just got back from a quiet evening at El Agave. Service was immediate, like lightening. Ordered the Burrito to share, wise choice because it could almost feed a whole family. This is on our top list. Hope they keep up the quality and service in the future. Definitely a culinary destination and will return.

Food was great and service was fast. We ordered carne asada their tuesday special and was extremely satisfied. Value for money and place was clean too. Would come back for more! It was right in front of the Coachman Inn and came here based on a tripadvisor review.

We came here for lunch and happened to be the only customers. I had a beef burrito which was so salty that I felt dehydrated all day. My companions felt that their meals were too salty as well. We were not impressed with the chips and salsa either. I know the owners have little control over this, but there are... More

We were in town for an event and stayed close to the El Agave so we decided to walk there. The food and drinks were quick and very good. The portions were huge too. I had the chimichanga combo and it was one of the best I have ever had. They have a number of draft beers in three different... More

A lot of reviewers talk about the wonderful service at this restaurant. We got an order to go so I can't comment on that. There was absolutely nothing wrong with our order but nothing that stood out to make me want to come back to this place more than most other Mexican restaurants in the area. I got the chicken...

Upon entering the parking lot, it appeared to be full so we thought the food must be good if so many people were eating here. Once inside, we were promptly greeted and taken to a table and given menus. Within seconds, a server was at our table with chips, salsa, pico de gallo and asking for our drink order. Again,... More
