Good food but service wasn't up to standards. Nice outdoor seating except on major highway thru town. Good Margaritas.

A lovely little restaurant serving all of the usual suspects - tacos, burritos, tamales, etc. - as well as items with a twist. We stopped by for lunch, thinking we'd get a something light, but the food was filling and I ended up with dinner as well.

The chips and salsa were served up right away; although the tortillas are not made on site, the chips are and the salsa had a nice texture and flavor. It was not the usual chopped tomatoes and onions and cilantro, but a smoother sauce, yet still with some chunks; more chili flavored instead of just tomatoes.

All of the dishes were nicely presented - instead of glops of rice and beans which then spread into the rest of the food, the rice was molded in a cup and inverted on the plate and the beans served in a cup. It was nice to have the choice between refried beans and black beans. The rice and beans were tasty and were the right temperature to eat instead of being over-zapped resulting in burnt tongues.

The food had a fresh flavor and the portion sizes were adequate. The prices are pretty reasonable, under $10 for most of the lunch choices, $12 for two items + 2 sides and a few more expensive offerings. I had the carne asada which was served with grilled cactus, chorizo and guacamole sauce, which I think was $13.

As full as we were, we had to try the flan. Good choice ! Outstanding flan, with just the right texture and the right amount of sweetness. I thought the whipped cream and chocolate sauce were going to be overkill, but it was a nice complement. The flan is made on site.

Service was friendly and I appreciated having the rest of my meal packed up by the staff as opposed to having to shovel the food into the container myself at the table. It was nicely arranged in the container and was just as appetizing the next day; additional salsa was a nice touch.

Good, tasty food at a reasonable price ........

Los Agaves in Sisters has the best Mexican food! We ate there on Monday of Memorial Day. They were stand-in-line busy but got the food to us without too long a wait. The owner, Jimmy, was on the run waiting tables. When he got to us he had time to stop and talk to us about our order as if we were the only customers he had. The food was very good. We had cousins with us who also enjoyed the food. We will be back, Jimmy!

Love the guacamole and margaritas. Have eaten here a couple of times and enjoy the freshness of the food. The wait staff is very kind, even when it is harried and busy.
