Description: Blue Agave Club serves freshly prepared, unique and authentic Mexican food and beverages in Pleasanton, CA. Stop by our unsurpassed patio and see what makes us one of the top dining destinations in the city! Redefining expectations with our exquisite and unique menu, we serve high-quality Mexican fare. Derived from old Garcia family recipes, we focus on combining exciting presentation with authentic and rich flavors. We have received numerous awards including being voted "Best Mexican Food" and "Best Margarita" by Pleasanton Weekly readers. Come see what the hype is all about and try one of our top quality margaritas and superb dishes like our popular Encojado or Mole Poblano. Our 145-year-old house-turned-restaurant is an ideal setting for first dates, wedding receptions, birthday parties, and more. We pride ourselves on our excellent food, above and beyond service, and being members of the Pleasanton community. Our owner and head chef Alexandro keeps a hands-on approach with all of our dishes, constantly experimenting and refining new and old dishes alike. Stop by for today for a taste of true agave flavor and authentic Mexican fare!

Food was good but menu items were not the typical Mexican dishes I'm used to seeing in the Detroit area (burritos/enchiladas with ground beef covered in melted cheese). Many of the menu items appeared more high end Mexican fare with shrimp / seafood ingredients. I ordered a cheese enchilada with a chicken breast. the enchilada was very good but the chicken was overcooked (dry / tough) with very little flavor. I would return again to try something else as the wait staff were very friendly and accommodating.

This restaurant has a very nice outdoor setting, but the prices are ridiculous! It is too pretentious.

Hi Jean, I'm glad to hear you really enjoy the atmosphere we provide. However, I'm sorry to hear that our prices influence your impression of our restaurant so negatively. We use the highest quality of ingredients available and pay careful attention to preparing innovative Mexican-inspired dishes -- these standards influence our pricing. I understand how this might be a bit of a surprise if you were expecting something more like authentic Mexican street food. But I hope that you're open to giving us another chance with this information in mind! I'm confident that we can impress you.

Best wishes,
Alexandro Garcia - Executive Chef/ Owner

Just OK...well..just OK is my best description. at least the patio seating on Main St offers fun people watching. Margarita is Ok and you do have several options with an avg size glass..Guacamole is a bit salty and chips are...well, just OK. Queso con chorizo needed more chorizo and the cheese lacked any real flavor IMO. Nice portions and reasonable prices but other than that, it's just another Chain Mex experience and misses the Mark on authentic

I'm disappointed to read that you felt this was "Chain Mex experience." We're a locally owned and operated restaurant and we've been here in Pleasanton for over 17 years now. We use the highest quality of ingredients and are sure to expertly (and generously!) pour our margaritas, so I'm a little surprised to hear that nothing you were served really impressed you. We're aiming for a high-end and fusion atmosphere, and though it's got a special place in our hearts, authentic Mexican street-food isn't our style. I hope that you'd consider coming back and giving us another try with this in mind! The people watching is always great here, and we'd do our very best to show you a great time.

Thanks for reviewing,
Alexandro Garcia - Executive Chef/ Owner

Wonderful outdoor restaurant with excellent high end Mexican food and wonderful Margaritas! They often have live music on the patio as well.

I haven't found the food too enticing, some things just plain strange. Margaritas are good, a huge selection of tequillas for the conosseur. Very pricey - don't expect your run of the mill Mexican food. Drinks and chips with Salsa, or queso is a good bet.
