Description: Surprised not to see this on your web site - many people (myself included) consider it the best Mexican Food in Santa Barbara. Service also excellent, at least when they are not crowded, which the often are! Just down the street from another outstanding (but simpler) Mexican Restaurant, La Super-Rica Taqueria.

“Los Agaves Mexican Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

This is definately the best Mexican restaurant in Santa Barbara. The burritos, quesadillas and fajitas are excellent. The salsa selection is awesome. You won't be disappointed eating here.

“Dinner 10/28”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2012

Staying in West Cabrillo Road, drove to Las Agaves, the neighborhood was a little different from where we were staying. Parked in the small lot behind the restaurant. Crowded, walked up to the counter to order, 3 groups in front of us, after 5 minute wait order dinner was given a card and proceeded to find a table. Quickly brought chips, and went to the salsa bar. Food was brought to the table within 15 minutes. Some of the best Mexican food that I have ever ate. Very busy place and once you have tried the food you can understand why. Great portions.

Well worth the drive from Santa clarita. Great food, reasonable prices. Can be very busy and sometimes there is a wait at peak times.
