This is by far the BEST Mexican restaurant with consistent quality and value on their lunch menu. Dinner has a dish called Pollo Tapatia which is the most awesome chicken dish with a cheese sauce, pico de gallo, authentic rice & beans. My family and I have been going here since they opened and they've NEVER disappointed us (we go... More

I only find myself through the area once in a blue moon, but each time I make a trip to El Agave and am never disappointed. Truly great selection at very reasonable prices. Intermittent customer for life.

Very colorful atmosphere. Every chair and booth are decorated with unique hand-painted southwestern scenes. The walls tastefully display framed works of art. Attire is very casual. Food and service are outstanding. More than ample parking available.

I had the chicken enchiladas with mole sauce, which were very good. Others had the chicken enchiladas rancheras, which they loved, and one person had the El Agave Especial, which looked wonderful. They serve a... More

They brought tacos with steak mixed with Mexican chorizo as filler. No cilantro was with meal as listed in menu. When asked for cilantro, waitress stated they were out... More
