“Never going back”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013 via mobile

I've been to Agave twice sinced it open once 4 years ago (which was good) but my second visit it was horrible!! Flautas (hard tacos) were soggy & sweet with walnuts (not Mexican at all) chicken mole & rice was horrible. Mole did not taste like mole and the rice tasted like a can tomatoe sauce.Food not fresh at all! Not what I was expecting for a Friday night dinner. I don't recommend it if you expect to have authentic Mexican food. Not to mentioned theres flies everywhere. Very disappointing!

“Delicious Burritos!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

I don't know what it is about California burritos, but they're just so much better. Agave is a great choice!

“Fresh Ingredients and Excellent Preparation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

Our party of four found Agave to be an excellent mid-market Mexican restaurant. We each had a different item from their menu. We were uniformly pleased. I had the Super Burrito and found it to be extremely well prepared with fresh local ingredients. Service was congenial, prompt, and attentive to detail--the salsa and chips were refreshed without having to ask. There is a good selection of local beers as well as the expected national and Mexican brands. The owner/manager, a local businessman, personally stopped by our table and asked if everything was to our liking.

“Mexican in Healdesburg”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013 via mobile

Many locals will tell you that having a bad meal in Healdsburg is not possible. And maybe that's true, but having an average meal is possible at Agave. They are quite friendly but not attentive, and the ingredients are fresh but not high end. So if you're looking for a solid but not outstanding meal, this is your place.

“Just ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

It's in a strip mall and the food is commensurate with what you find in a strip mall. We had the Carne Asada and tacos. Both were mediocre. The chips were dry and non-descript. Service was very attentive and deserves five stars.
