We visited the last week of June, 2012 and they told us they had only been open 10 days. They handled a party of 15 as if they were doing if for years. The salsa was unbelievable! The food was light fresh and delicious!!

Oh my gosh there is a party in my mouth! This food was made with so much love. It’s a little more expensive than I might usually expect for Mexican, but it was literally worth every penny! You must come here to eat. I got...the flautas, and they were so good. My friend got the carne asada, and it was so moist and flavorful! 😊More

Just arrived in Corolla for the first time. Friends recommended the restaurant and we e arrived 30 minutes before closing. The couple in front if us was seated and we were ignored. I went to the bar and ask to be seated. The man turned...around and screamed "We have no more food, can't serve you!" In the most unpleasant manner. I wouldn't piss in this establishment after the total lack of respect and customer service.More

I know we are going through difficult COVID times, but service should be the most important. Our food was delicious and the drinks were tasty. We ordered tacos which was supposed to be served with rice and beans when I asked the server ”Tony” from...why we were missing them and he respond to me is Spanish ( which he noticed I spoke Spanish because of my accent) that usually, Americans ( in this case my husband and son-in-law, ) don't like to eat them. Not a nice thing to say. Also, we were with under 8 years old son, and the servers were having a personal conversation near our table, and they use the ”F” word - very unprofessional.More

We ordered takeout for our family of five last night - the food was amazing (shrimp and fish tacos, corn, rice, and beans). Unique flavors and perfect portions. I wish we had found it earlier on our vacation!

Working with the owner, John, was a pleasure. Our group of 15--7 adults and 8 children ages 8-16--enjoyed a tasty and ample serving of Spanish treats. Delivery was timely.

Pleasantly surprised! Due to Covid many places continued with the pick up and with Mexican it's hit or miss by the time you get it home.... not to worry with Agave Roja.... the food was GREAT! We had to wait a little longer as they...were slammed with orders at once, but it was worth the wait and can't wait to return a the new norm and be able to experience the onsite service and drinks!More

This restaurant was sensational, a gem amid the standard restaurants you’ll find in a beach town. They do require reservations for dining in due to COVID restrictions so plan ahead. The food was super fresh and flavorful. The three course menu provided many options -...the floutas, shrimp with corn and zucchini and ribs were just awesome. The margaritas are hand shaken and delicious. We will definitely come back when we go to Corolla again.More

Skill of the chef/owner shows in the menu and preparation. They somehow find good servers, unusual in Corolla. The food has a southwest flair, but with original recipes. I especially like the pork shanks. He also features seasonal vegetables. Everything we have had is good...and prices are quite reasonable for the quality of the food.More

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