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.

We stopped here after a rainy afternoon of wine-tasting. The service was good, the atmosphere decent for an inexpensive Mexican restaurant. The choices were great. 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

We visited El Agave years ago and were not that impressed but decided to try it again. It was OK, just average food. The chips are very thick and somewhat hard. Fortunately they do not over salt them as often is the case. The salsa was WAY to hot (spicy) for me though I admit to being wimpy. The margarita... More

We had not eaten at this Mexican Restaurant before and were invited by two other couples to join them. When we arrived, the other couples were seated at a booth (which made it a bit crowded) and there were bigger tables available but since we were the last ones there, we made do. I was advised that they had good... More

I have been going to this restaurant on and off for 10 years. I went to pick up a take out order this week and it took them awhile to complete my order, but it was totally worth it. The food was amazing - worth the wait and so glad to see every table taken!
