I've been to the other "El Agave", that's in the Zona Colonial, it's called "la cantina del agave". The design is really pretty, nice atmosphere. The drinks are good, you have about 20 different margaritas with different fruits.
The food was not good though, I had nachos, that came cold (not that the service was long, just that they don't heat them up), with very little topping, kinda seemed like a bag of corn chip. And my boyfriend had tacos, very small, not much meat, and mostly onion.
If I had been a poor Mexican farmer, it would have been great i'm sure, but paying almost 40$ for that (10$ for a margarita, 10$ for each meal) seemed unreasonable.

The food was hot and good and the service was good. We were in and out in an hour. Try the passion fruit Margarita - quite delicious. One of the better restaurants found in the area. The music is very loud and the restaurant appears to attract the "twenty-somethings" crowd.

I have visit the Agave many times, you can call me a regular, I think the best thing ever are the Margaritas;They have many flavors and all of them are great, I recommend ''Margarita de COCO'(Coconut)' and ''Margarita de CHINOLA" (Passion Fruit), The Service is Amazing, the girls are very nice and polite and always making sure you have everything you need, They have an Executive Menu week days 12-3 pm I think is the best Option for people like me that are working close to the Naco area, I recommend the Chimichanga Criolla taking in consideration that has the mexican style mix with the dominican flavor, is pretty nice and comes with Coke or water, a great Value! I love the Green Sauce, Not a lover of the red one, but mix together works great, If you are a real lover of Mexican Hot sauce then I recommend you ask for the real spicy one, at first they will bring you the tomatoe sauce that is not spicy at all and the green sauce that is spicy mild, ask your waitress for the real spicy!! Mondays is Margarita day all the long, so pay one and get two!! FOOD: I have try almost everything, The food is always great but i personally recommend Chimichangas, Enchiladas Suizas and Alambre Mixto.
