It's A Redmond Staple

We like coming here when we don't know what else we want to do but feel like relaxing in a big comfortable booth. There are a few things on the menu that are our favorites. Sometimes we venture away from our usual fare and are generally happy. They have a balance of all of the old classics along... read more

We has take out from Agave last night and it hit the spot. Great steak salad and chicken enchiladas. Not your typical Mexican cuisine with lots of fresh veggies and healthy options. Easy and friendly phone ordering and pick up made it even better.

We had been to this place in the past and had not enjoyed it. However, our friend said that it was under new management or possibly ownership and they liked the new food. We had fantastic drinks, good tortilla soup that wasn't entirely what I expected but was much enjoyed, enjoyable carne asada and a shimp diabola that was much... More

We recently experienced this new little Mexican restaurant in Redmond and we had the same, excellent service, food and welcomed experience every single time. Great food, great bartenders/servers, an amazing and very friendly owner. All people very attentive, knowledgeable, friendly. Food is prepared fast and tastes great. Place is clean and welcoming.

They make a great chicken tortilla soup, and a very good chicken taco salad. They have specials everyday and make some very good cocktails. We order ahead when we go there for lunch, it 's usually ready when we get there. I would recommend this restaurant for good Mexican food and plenty off it.

Nice place to eat with great décor and friendly staff. The food was healthy and mouth watering. My husband had the seafood enchiladas and LOVED them. I had the taco salad which was made with fresh tasting vegetables and tasty chicken. We would definitely eat here again.

Nice place to eat with great décor. Lots on the menu but seemed very pricey to me for Mexican food. Maybe because of the "healthy" factor ?? Very nice owner, promptly seated and food was prepared in a timely manner.
