Best chips and salsa! Food is artfully presented in a Tex-Mex style, but if you typically prefer straight Mexican food, you will still love this restaurant! It is healthy and has many options like soup, salads and Mexican plates. Each plate has the sweet cornmeal dessert that is wonderful!

Blue Agave is a family owned restaurant that specializes in Southwester food. The dishes are made from fine quality foods and the presentations are awesome. Service is quick and reliable and the prices are perfect.

The food here is excellent and the prices are great as well. You definitely get good bang for the buck! They also have a great Monday and Tuesday happy hour. The prices are better than Taco Bell but the food is outstanding! 2 thumbs up!

Always go when visiting family in CA and always good. Warm tortilla chips and salsa when you sit down. The taco soup is the best we've had. Top notch service. And the fried ice cream is an absolute must. Sweetie and Rascal Pants

This was our first time and won't be our last. Before heading out to visit the Richard Nixon Library we decided to have an early lunch. Not knowing where to eat we checked TripAdvisor for a nearby restaurant. So glad we did. Amazing food and service but bring an appetite.

We came to Blue Agave for a get together and had the most incredible lunch. Everyone was helpful, smiling, and knowledgeable. The service was quick and very responsive. But the food was AMAZING. I had an excellent carnitas wrap, tasty, fresh, and huge. My meal came with a lunch sized taste of corn cake, borracho beans, and a wonderful jicama... More

The food and service were great. The prices are very fair and our lunch was delicious. The salsa is very flavorful without being spicy. The atmosphere is also very nice. The mosaic tiles on the walls are lovely. I will gladly return!

We hasn't been to Blue Agave in a few years but wanted a nice place for a family meal and who doesn't love Mexican food! And the food did not disappoint starting with the light and crispy tortilla chips and great salsa that just kept coming! Gotta try the Blue Agave Cadillac Margaritas - tasty!

I went to so many Mexican restaurants in search for the REAL Mexican food I don't care to remember. And finally I landed at Blue Agave in Yorba Linda, California! The interior is warm and inviting decorated with Mexican themes. The personnel is ultranice! Then is the food. We started with a guacamole prepared in front of us! Then we... More
