This is not the place to go and worry about what you eat. We have been here a few times and every time we LOVE it. The bubbling cauldron of cheese (AKA Queso Fundido) is a terrific appetizer. It has delicious chorizo crumbles in it. It's sinful! We have also tried different burritos and enchiladas and have never been disappointed.... More

We visited here one night and had such fun. The food is very good and the Margaritas are huge and definitely hit the spot. The staff are great and the place tastefully decorated

Our party of 4 tried Agave for the first time last night and were not impressed. The best part of the experience was our parking space directly in front of the entrance. We arrived shortly after 6pm and were greeted by 2 hostesses. Nearby was a cluster of 7 waitstaff all chatting and looking very much not busy. We were... More

Stopped in for lunch. Endless fresh made chips and salsa are a minimal up charge, get 'em. I had chili and the Missus had sopa de tortilla soup AND the fresh guacamole. Great portion. Food fresh and service was great. Highly recommended.

I stopped in mid afternoon with a friend for lunch and drinks. My co-worker had recommended Agave. The chips and salsa were excellent! You could tell they were made in house. I ordered the skinny margarita which was very good. It had a lot of flavor and not overly sour or sweet. The re-fried beans were fantastic! I could just... More

Went there alone for lunch recently. Waiter did not serve chips and salsa- thought it was standard with every meal. Ordered the carnitas. Refried beans were old and dried out, rice not particularly seasoned very well, carnitas not shredded (just big chunks of pork), and not particularly fresh tasting. This is not the fresh innovative cuisine I was used to... More

The inside is small,not very comfortable. It was a beautiful day so we ate outside,Ned enjoyed people watching. The chips and salsa was very good served warm. Waitress was informative explained the menu,as we were not familiar with Mexican food. Ordered the tacos and enjoyed them.

Thank Mary D
