On a recent Outer Banks get-a-way to Corolla NC, my wife and I (plus 3 y.o. granddaughter) decided to give the Mexican food at Agave Roja a try. We both love good Mexican food, but had given up trying to find any since moving to the east coast 25+ years ago. We had heard that Agave Roja's approach to Mexican food was "different." Too many Mexican restaurants serve the same basic 15+ combinations made with ground beef and other standard ingredients. This restaurant featured fresh seafood, beef, and chicken on traditional choices such as tacos, enchiladas, etc., as well as other unique choices. We started with a beef tamale appetizer that was terrific, followed by a delicious dinner. Service was outstanding and their classic margarita is great. The place is not all that big - only about 15 or so tables, and was full by 7 pm on a Thurs night. Bottom line: if you want Mexican food that is unique, authentic, and delicious, you need to visit Agave Roja.
