Agava serves a pretty decent margarita accompanied by live music three days a week. Dine outside when the weather is pretty, it makes for an enjoyable evening.

Visit this place when in town. Food is always hot fresh and cooked to order. The only think I would prefer is fresh chips instead of bagged.

We normally go to the Agave near River Ranch but we were attending a show in Lafayette this evening so we decided to try this location again. It has been a while since we came here. Our server was Devin and he was good enough to get an 18% tip. He and the salsa were the best parts of our... More

Was nice to escape the sun and sit in their colourful and festive shady outdoor patio. In door option available too that has a nice outdoor view and airy feeling. Complimentary salsa and corn chips. Ordered a pitcher of Margarita on the rocks, made well, not to sweet with a good tequila kick. Chicken Quesadilla was large and cheesy with... More

This is a place we go to often with friends and it's always mixed reviews. They have local bands every weekend so you definitely have great entertainment. Food not always on point. Had some instances where food was not good and other times food was decent. Some people love it some people hate it. So it seems it just goes... More

We were in town for Cinco de Maya so we decided to do Mexican food even though we were in Cajun country. Band was great, though way too loud for us. We had a great queso dip and tacos. Chips were crisp and good. This is a very popular place!

The seafood burritos were delicious. All of the guests in our party enjoyed the cajun/mexican food. Several of the margaritas were enjoyed - those frozen and over ice.

Awesome food and fun atmosphere! We have been here many times when we are in town and we have never been disappointed! The best chimachanga I've ever had.

At various times during the year Lafayette puts on a free event called "Downtown Alive" which is an outdoor live music event. Agave is right there near all the action and has a large open seating area. Its a great place to sit outside, listen to live music and enjoy some margaritas.
