We have eaten at El Agave several times and it is one of our favorite places to eat in the area. The service is fast and attending without being overbearing. The food is excellent with a little something for everyone. We drive over from another community with several Mexican restaurants because El Agave is by far superior.

We had a large group 20+. They were able to accommodate us, it was a little crowded but we were comfortable. The waitress was really nice. She had many tables and still kept up with the needs of our group. Everyone said their food was warm and had great flavor. This can be a challenge when you have so many... More

I like this one as one of the best in southern Minnesota. The place is clean, has nice atmosphere and large selection of dishes on the menu. Margarita specials at noon and Monday and Tuesday evenings! Good service.

I ate dinner here in January had a very nice evening. The atmosphere is very nice and it is a large enough space to allow at least a sense of privacy if that's what one is seeking. The food is very good with large portions. The service was very attentive and courteous. I will definitely go back when I am... More

I am gluten free and this works. There are a lot of menu items. They have margaritas for really cheap on Mondays. Their food is quality, for example if you order a chicken entree the chicken is the best white chicken.

There are a fair number of mexican restaurants in Minnesota, but outside of St. Paul, most are like this one. Booths, meals by the number, drinks by the quart. What I do whenever I'm trying one out is that I order the chili rellenos. That is, in my mind's eye, a test of the chef. If it's a good chef,... More

If you need colour in your life visit El Agave. The décor is unimaginably colourful and interesting. The service is remarkably fast - even before you are fully seated someone is bringing you chips and someone else is bringing you menus and taking your drink order. I ate there twice in one week and found the portions generous, the food... More

Friday night dinner! We had chimichangas, chicken and spinach Enchiladas, a Philly cheesesteak burrito, and a chicken fajita salad. Everyone cleaned their plates. The fried items were a little greasy, but delicious.
