Always reliably good food served quickly by friendly staff. My family has been coming to El Agave since they opened. My son, who now lives out of state, always makes a trip to ElAgave with his friends when he comes home for a visit. My husband's favorite is the Huevos con Chorizo. They know his order before he even says... More

El Agave is a local favorite. Long established, often crowded and a great place to take the family. Great, friendly staff. Food is really good.

This Mexican restaurant was a frequent stop for lunch during the week. The food is very good at a very reasonable price.

This is a reliable Mexican place in Ruckersville, though I expect some competition from a new restaurant recently opened next door. Large dining area with comfortable booths, friendly staff who are prompt and attentive, good salsa and warm chips, large entree portions packed with flavor, all at an affordable price. What else would one want or expect?

Very friendly, delicious food, nice casual atmosphere, very willing to work with you for requests like 'hold the mushrooms' or 'extra spicy, please.' There are many options, including vegetarian and children's meals. The margaritas are very good.

Great restaurant, very very good food served in a clean and friendly environment! This is a consistently pleasant place to go, with easy access from Hwy 29N. The Fajitas Texacanos are out of this world! Prices seemed really reasonable to me, especially for such nice fresh food. I'll certainly be back!

We enjoyed our dinner here. I ordered something I never get. It was Ok I don't think I would get it again. Salsa was great and the service was good. I am glad we picked this place for dinner. We enjoyed it.

Last night we had a delicious dinner at El Agave in Ruckersville, Va., for the second time in a week - and we loved it both times! We do not like spicy food, so we chose the Vegetarian Fajitas, and enjoyed them so much! The taste was terrific and there was so much food, we were able to share one... More
