Tried El Agave for the first time. Wasn't sure I would like it or not - greeter doesn't smile much. Our server, Allison, was so sweet and helpful (we sometimes have complicated orders). Others were alert as well and brought more chips and refills. Always nice to be so well attended. The food was yummy and plentiful - we couldn't... More

We go every Monday night for trivia. Good food fast. Never any complaints. Well, one of the televisions has been out for awhile.

I did not eat until later at night. This restaurant looked good from the reviews on this site. The service was decent but a little slow. The food came up quick and was pretty decent as far as Mexican goes. If I was staying in town again I would probably stop back here.

I swear if my wife didn't like Mexican food so much we would not eat here, but it's fast and close to the hotel we stay at. This trip was a Sunday stopover and decided to try out the Sunday crew.. They did a good job and the food came out fast and was okay. The only negative that I... More

There is some outside seating but we chose to eat inside. It is nicely decorated and clean. We were seated promptly and the overall service was very good. We had chimichangas and fijitas and they were both good. I would eat here again if I was in the area.

Stopped in for lunch while out shopping and so glad we did. The service was excellent, the surroundings were very nice, even had a water feature but the food was amazing. We had chimichangas and chicken fajitas. Everything was delicious and fresh. Most definitely will be going back when we are again in McDonough.

Visited for dinner last week and the service was very good. Chips and salsa were brought out right away and our waiter was very attentive. Although it seemed busy, our food came out pretty quickly and everything tasted delicious!

Well. After giving such a good review the last time I was there it pains me to write this one... It wasn't a terrible experience but let's say the Friday night crew is the A-team and the Tuesday night crew is the C-team at best. The waitress was having a hard time understanding our order. And after the 4th time... More

In addition to the great food and drinks (with generous portions), there was a live musician. This is not a quiet restaurant, but perfect for a lively gathering among friends.
