“Good food, average service ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2014

Delicious tacos and margaritas, all reasonably priced. Something was wrong with their water though- yuck! Tasted awful. Our server was pleasant but certainly didn't go out of her way for us, despite the fact that the place was empty. She vanished after she brought us the check, not even bothering to clear off our empty glasses and plates so we could sit and finish drinks more enjoyably. Overall, good food at fair prices for Old Town.

“Shrimp tacos”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

I took my daughter and son-in-law to Cien Agaves when they came for a visit and it has become one of my favorite places to go, especially on Monday when I crave their shrimp tacos and margaritas.
I love the island shrimp tacos!
I love going to Old Town Scottsdale and Cien Agaves.

“Go for the margaritas!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2013 via mobile

The margaritas are plentiful and delicious, made with fresh ingredients and some unusual flavor choices. The salsas, both red and green are excellent and choosing one over the other as a favorite was difficult. The appetizers were not memorable except for the chorizo crisp. The atmosphere is festive, the service good and plenty of TV sports viewing. It is in the heart of Old Scottsdale.

“Very solid mexican restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2013

Usually just come here for margarita's and guacamole, both which are very good. Perfect place to have a little food and some drinks before going out in old town. Nice that its in old town but a little far from the main strip of clubs and bars, so a perfect place to just have a drink and chat with your friends.
