Great Mexican restaurant! Food was tasty and done to perfection and the margaritas to die for. Highly recommend this restaurant if in the mood for Mexican fare with a flare.

We had a family meal at a Café Roja, and we were very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the meals and the service. Every dish was well crafted and delicious. The Spanish rice side dish was a very nice touch. We will come back...the next time we’re on the Outer Banks.More

This restaurant has the best food. Every time I visit the Corolla area I make sure I call ahead for a reservation. Food is well prepared and is always delicious.

We came here years ago, and it was just how we remembered- great food & drinks. It is a little small so I would definitely recommend calling and making a reservation to make sure you can get seated when you want. The tacos, fajitas, margaritas...are all great, you can’t go wrong here.More

My husband and I don't get out much, having 2 little ones. We had a spontaneous date tonight. After 2 failed attempts at seafood, we saw a little Mexican restaurant across the parking lot and decided to give it a try. They had outdoor seating...and fast service. The staff was kind and knowledgeable. The food was delicious, good sized portions with a beautiful presentation. The hostess was even kind enough to help us find the next phase of our unplanned date - sunset at Historic Corolla Park. We got in right away, but they sounded busy with reservations, so if you're planning your trip, give them a call to reserve your table.More

Excellent fajitas! Staff is extremely courteous and knowledgeable about the menu. Be prepared to sit at the bar and have a margarita (or two!) while waiting for your take-out order. Food is fresh and well-prepared. We had the fajitas w all recommended sides. Said it...was for 6 - there were 4 of us and it made two solid meals.More

We LOVED this restaurant!! We did takeout for the fajita special & we were so pleasantly surprised how great the food is. It was an awesome deal, paired with awesome flavoring that catered to both our spice lovers & our moderate lovers. If you eat...a small to medium-sized meal, divide how many people you order for in half because the fajita family meal is big. We bought for 4 & we had plenty of leftovers. Also a heads up on the wait to pick up - it’s fresh so on busy nights, the wait can be up to 2 hours. Be sure to also go early for a margarita :)More

We’ve been to Agave numerous times and each time the food, service and drinks are always great and filling. It’s newly renovated for the 2022 season.

We sent ten teenagers out for a birthday dinner and Agave Roja was very accommodating! The waiter was very patient with some of the picky eaters in the group & everybody was very happy with their entrees. Chips & salsa were a hit too!

We went the Wednesday before thanksgiving after having eaten here in May. The service and food was fantastic. Especially the ribs, the spicy shrimp and the jalapeno Margaritas. Unlike a prior review I observed, we were successful making a reservation for 5. The staff was...excellent and the food an service equally excellent. Dont forget to try the Butcher Block next door for the best in gourmet meats to bring back home.More

This is the third time eating here. First time at the restaurant was very good. Take out last two years was not. Steak in fajitas was very chewy. Not enough fixings for two fajita orders. Mexican corn was tasteless. Last years tacos were minuscule so...did not reorder this year. I am done with them.More

They do take out orders but not if they're really busy. I would suggest arranging an early pick up
