“Rare Treat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012

Located across the street from our hotel, we got the surprise of our lives - unbelievable service, super attentive from the minute we walked in the door! Great food, delicious margaritas, affordable prices - wish we could take this restaurant back to Wisconsin with us.

“Great Mexican Food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2012 via mobile

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel, so we took his advice and went there last night and found everything about this place brilliant. The service and food was up there with the best, from the salsa and chips to the actual food could not be faulted in any way. It was by far the best Mexican food we have had on this holiday.

We both chose the specials. Mine was a burrito, which was full of beef cooked to perfection and my wife had meat platter. Both meals were served with rice and beans.

If we are ever this way again, we would definitely eat here. A full five stars!!!

“Excellent food, excellent prices!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2012

We (by chance) arrived at El Agave in Bellingham. We were greeted immediately and were seated immediately. We received warm tortilla chips and fresh salsa. So delicious! Our food must have arrived within 5 minutes of ordering. Our lunch time dishes were about $6 USD and $7USD. Our bill came to under $14USD.
Our food was so delicious and the complimentary chips and salsa was very nice. This was very authentic. We highly recommend this restaurant.
