I ate here for the first time yesterday and was pleasantly surprised. The menu didn't offer as many "authentic" Mexican dishes - there was often a "twist" on the dishes listed. But the food was FABULOUS. This is now my new favorite Mexican Restaurant. I highly recommend that you at least try it out!

I met some friends here for dinner when I was visiting Healdsburg. I didn't necessarily have great expectations when I saw it was in a strip mall, sandwiched between Safeway and a Dollar Store. I couldn't have been more wrong. Having been fed a steady diet of mediocre Mexican food at all the restaurants further north where I live, I was completely delighted with how phenomenal the food was at Agave. I ordered the enchiladas with mole and this was without a doubt the best mole I've ever had in my life. Clearly homemade with skill and love - it was delightful. The Molotes appetizer were also excellent, the salsa and guacamole were top notch, and even the rice and beans were pleasantly good and lacking the usual heaviness of typical Mexican restaurants. Without a doubt this will be my go-to place for a meal when passing through the area - I can't wait to try everything else on the menu.

Located in a strip mall just west of the main drag in Healdsburg (3rd exit at the roundabout heading north, 1st exit heading south on Healdsburg Avenue), Agave is a good option for "authentic" Mexican food at an attractive price point. The owner sources chocolate, spices and chili peppers directly from Mexico and his mother makes a killer mole negro in the kitchen daily. Tip: Agave is a Dosh and Yelp! cashback restaurant as well as participating in the Dining Rewards Network programs so you can get a bit of a discount as well as earn some frequent flyer miles by dining here.
