I am a native Texan who now lives in Moscow. When I moved here, I had very little hope of finding even passable Mexican food. We have taken to making our own salsa and chili from scratch, which is fine. But sometimes you want to be able to go out for that kind of stuff. We stumbled across Cafe Agave and found it to be more than solid. It doesn't rank with my very best Tex Mex experiences, but I have certainly had far worse in Austin and San Antonio (and at very famous local chains too). The guacamole was excellent--the correct texture, good flavor, not like the avocado mush that often gets served even in well-known Tex Mex chains. My three cheese quesadillas came loaded with grilled onions and peppers, and the Spanish rice tasted exactly like it was supposed to. The only complaint we really had was the margaritas, which tasted like slightly alcoholic lemonade. Oh, and the prices. I'm afraid this place is quite expensive for what you get, but as a once-in-a-while treat, it's great.
Our waiter was great, very attentive. He brought us extra chips when asked. And unlike most Moscow waiters, he checked on us regularly and was easy to find when needed. At least some of the staff here speak a bit of English.
