This is a nice, warm, welcoming place, love the atmosphere. We started off with their Skinny Margarita, a huge, delicious, not too sweet concoction with plenty of tequila. You only need one, two and you need to call Uber. The chips and salsa were good, flavorful and not too hot. I ordered the combo with Chile Relleno, Chicken Enchilada with... More

The atmosphere is not very good, very dated. Food was OK. The preparation of the guacamole was a bit weird. The guy came out and mixed it at the table and the way he did it did not leave a very appetizing dish.

This place was recommended to us by the concierge at our hotel. It did not disappoint, we will definitely be back! We had the taco fiesta for two. All the different meats were very flavorful. The chorizo and carne asada were my favorite. The house margarita was very strong.

The best bar in the area! There are twins here, and they keep the place moving! One Margarita and you don't need another, but you want one! Best to split the second! The food is not the best, but good enough.

Tonight was our first visit to Fresh Agave. Location was easy to find, parking was plentiful. We did not have a reservation and felt fortunate to be seated right away. It was Saturday evening and the restaurant was busy and noisy. We enjoyed the basket of tortilla chips and salsa to start. Salsa was very good. Our main courses were... More

Nice place to enjoy delicious Mexican food. Especially liked their freshly made salsa, not too hot but just right. Other reviews of this place mentioned the strong Margaritas served here and they were right - one is surely enough. Both my husband's meal and mine were really plentiful and good, plus their prices were reasonable. Service fast and friendly. You... More

This was our first visit to fresh agave and it was busy for a Thursday night. We started with some freshly made guacamole served with tortilla chips. It was very good. Our mains included a selection of burritos, quesadillas and fajitas. All the food was fresh and tasty. The prices were also very reasonable.

Very nice family resaurant with Mexican food everyone will like. The sause over my chicken tamales was exceptional. Oh and yeah the margaritas were potent. We snuck in by chance on a Friday early enough to get a table before the rush and watched the place fill up fast and a line form. Made us think we picked a good... More

Went on a Monday night which was quiet but love the simple cantina feel of this restaurant! Our server was very efficient, friendly and funny. My colleague and I shared a selection of tacos and they were amazing, very tasty; as were our margueritas which required "training wheels" (extra lemonade) as we were a bit too soft for the full...

Nice selection of tacos, enchiladas, fajitas in an authentic environment, clearly a local favorite place. All fresh ingredients. Outdoor seating faces a parking area. There was a harp player who contributed to the local ambience.
