Staying in the nearby Comfort Suites gets you a 15% discount here. We had the taco salad (with steak) and Fajitas Mexicana (steak, chicken, chorizo). Food was great (more than we could eat) and very good service. Nice stop on the road.

We had the chimichanga, salad, taco and the complementary salsa. All were very tasty and portions sizes were good. The wine special pino grigio was good at only $4.

We were staying next door at the Comfort Suites, and, though we usually just dash out for fast food when we're traveling between Florida and Wisconsin, the front desk clerk recommended Agave, so we decided to try it. Most of the time, when we go...More

We ate here on Thursday and had excellent food & service. After a bad experience at another restaurant in Mt. Vernon this evening, we decided to go back to Agave. Again, the food was great and the service was also outstanding.
