I stop here regularly on my way to Yosemite and beyond because they have very good food and it's convenient location. It is in a shopping center right on Hwy 120, so one can get a meal and stock up on various supplies at the supermarket next door. The food is very good and authentic; I travel to Mexico frequently,... More

Oakdale has a number of good taquerias to choose from and El Agave is at the top of the list. Located at the east end of town (next to Tractor Supply), it is large and bustling. The food is good and the prices are reasonable.

The food was very good, the salsa bar was delicious, and my husband says the pickled jalapeños on the salsa bar were the best he's ever had. What made it memorable and extra enjoyable, though, was the singing- the staff was singing and they were good and it made me want to come back (we pass through occasionally on our... More

Veggie Burrito that is more food than I can eat, and delicious for less than $6 in 2014. with free chips. Delicious salsa bar! Bathrooms were pretty rough, but better than a gas station. Probably due to the large number of Yosemite climbers (like us) who stop there to refuel and clean up a little.

I'm in here pretty regularly. The food is great. Burrito mojado with the red sauce is pretty bomb. The staff does a great job keeping up with the sheer volume of people that come in there on a Sunday night. They're open til 10pm.

The place is very unassuming, tucked in a little strip center with a grocery store (which I also highly recommend for stocking up on picnic supplies for Yosemite!). You order at the counter, then choose your sauces and salsas from the bar. It was delicious, and so plentiful! I had nachos, which were covered with real cheese, beans, high-quality beef,... More
