“Nice place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

We enjoyed the ambiance of this restaurant. The food was about average Mexican food. Good salsa and ok Margaritas. The staff was very friendly. Not sure if I would go back. I would stop by for a drink since it was a very pretty place.

“Just ok”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

The patio was very nice, but the indoor eating area was very plain. Friends of the employees were running around and goofing off. The food was just okay, but if you're going there for margaritas, forget it. They were terrible!!

“Agave Maria's”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

Based on the reviews, we expected great things. The fajitas were not good, smothered in a heavy tomato-ey sauce. The enchiladas were covered in yellow cheese. The chicken mole sauce was decent, but the chicken did not taste really fresh.

“Excellent Food....service non-existent”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

Based upon the reviews we went there for dinner and got the table in front of the outdoor fireplace. So far so good. After we were sat, no one came by our table for about 20 minutes. The wait staff that did walk by made a very concerted effort NOT to look in our direction. The two busboys who were near to our table finally felt sorry for us and went and got a waiter. When he showed up he wanted to know if we had made our decision for dinner yet. I let him know that we wanted drinks and that we had not yet seen a menu. He took our drink order and then disappeared. After another 15 minutes, the hostess came by, apologized profusely and took our dinner order. 30 minutes later, our busboy went to locate our meal and brought it to us. No one ever came back to see how The dinner was, except our two very hard working busboys. The waiters and waitresses were still walking by our table, making sure not to look at us.....we tipped the busboys, put our jackets on, stood up to leave, and guess what? ...our waiter showed up........won't be back. We can get better service at a taco bell!

“Never disappointing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012 via mobile

We try to go there at least very couple weeks. Love the atmosphere, love the food, loooove the pixie-Rita. The special hot salsa is definetly hot and a great flavor. Every time family comes in we stop there. I love the patio. On cooler evenings it is great to get he booth by the fireplace.
