Review of Agave

Ranked #5 of 73 Restaurants in Mount Vernon
Cuisines: Mexican
Restaurant details
Reviewed July 20, 2014 via mobile

We arrived at prime dinner time on a Friday night, and thought we might have to wait to get in. Fortunately this restaurant has lots of seating, and we got right in.

We always appreciate a Mexican restaurant that has more than just the usual taco plate combo on the menu. Agave did not disappoint us. We opted for a grilled shrimp dish with mushrooms and pineapple, and a taco salad served over rice rather than in a taco shell.

Our meals arrived quickly, before we even have a chance to go through all the chips and salsa at the table. Everything tasted wonderful!

Service was fast and friendly, food was plentiful and reasonably priced, and we'll be back when we're in town again.

We eat out at a lot of Mexican restaurants while we travel. We were driving through Illinois and stopped here for dinner. I would have to say it was a pretty typical Mexican restaurant. Food was tasty, service was friendly. Nothing really remarkable about it but it was a good dinner.

We like to eat here on our way from KY to MO but after this last time I doubt we will again. It was Sunday after church and pretty busy but our service was so slow & awful. Took forever to order, never got us a high chair, and then everyone around us got food but us. It finally came and was pretty average, nothing awful nothing great. No one ever checked on us after that. I didn't like the chips or salsa, very bland.

The patio was very nice though and large. We were out there letting our son run off some energy and one of the table umbrellas flew off - into the back of a pickup! My hubby saw this & told someone but they either didn't understand or didn't care. The truck drove off so I guess someone got a new table umbrella lol.

The service was fast and friendly. The food is typical of a Mexican restaurant and has always been served quickly and very hot. The strawberry margarita was made perfectly. It is our "go to" Mexican in Mount Vernon.

Our meal was average and very filling. I would eat here again if I was stopping for the evening but would not seek it out otherwise
