Second time we have stopped with having a student at Gustavus College they are friendly and quick with a wonderful array of foods. Love coming here!

I've ordered a couple of different things here (quesadillas, burritos...) and none of the food stands out as being exceptional. The restaurant itself is spacious, the prices are affordable and the service is excellent. So, while you may not be amazed at the food, you will leave with a full belly and will have had great service by kind servers.

We had a fine dinner tonight. Prompt friendly service, good food, clean, reasonable price, attractive decor.. The Carne Asada was excellent, hot, well cooked, well presented. Strawberry Margaritas were just what they should be. We've eaten here before, will do so again. Reminds us of the family owned restaurants in Mexico.

You can spend a lot here and get a lot of food or spend a little and get enough food. It is always good they always get everything to you as quick as possible and it tastes delicious.

Ate at El Agave when I was in St. Peter last week. The food and drinks were great. Ran into the owner while we were there and it turns out he is my dad's neighbor in my home town. Small world. Would recommend to all.

Went as a solo diner while on a business trip. The choice was easy because the location was an easy half-block walk from my motel. The meal was very good. I liked that they immediately served chips and salsa upon being seated, and both tasted great. The menu is typical Mexican, but there is lots to choose from, and you... More

Probably the best food option in Saint Peter, this is an excellent Mexican restaurant. Clean, festively decorated, courteous service and the food was great too! What not to like? We enjoyed the lunch specials, and a great value too!

We have't been there for awhile so decided to go again. We were not sorry as we had a great dinner along with some drinks which were great also. If you are in the area you need to go there.

El Agave has really good Mexican dishes and they are amazingly fast! A great place to take the grandkids who aren't quite old enough to sit for a long meal. Food is consistently good quality. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere and friendly staff.
