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.

I have been to alot of Mexican restaurants before but this one makes their food quicker and better than the others.The enchiladas are amazing and their atmosphere is just spot on. There is alot of energy and colors that add to the experience. The... More

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.

Good, authentic food. Atmosphere is very festive and the waiters/waitresses are friendly. Never a long wait for the food and almost always comes piping hot.

My son attends college in St. Peter and he wanted Mexican food, when we were there for a visit. This is about it for Mexican food, unless you want a fast-food place, so we gave it a try. It is super easy to find and parking is ample. We were greeted promptly and seated with a great view of the... More
