This place is the favorite Mexican restaurant of our friends who live in Palm Desert. It was packed the Sunday night we went. That could explain the somewhat indifferent and sloppy
service. The wait staff spilled food and utensils twice on one of our companions, prompting
an angry reaction. Fortunately, the food and drink fared better. The margaritas were decent.
Next came the tortilla soup, with generous chunks of chicken and jalapeno cheese...delicious.
My chile relleno was excellent, the hard-shell chicken taco wasn't bad. The chicken mole
got my wife's approval. Two of our friends also had the relleno..their favorite dish. An L.A
native, I was hoping for more traditional food. Many of the dishes seemed more suited to American tastes. Unlike many excellent Mexican restaurants in Los Angeles, there's a dearth of this cuisine in the desert communities. Fresh Agave tries its best to fill the need.
