Good salsa, crispy chips and decent sized dinner portions. The cheese dip portion is small but tasty and the guacamole is flavorful. Service is fast and friendly. Vegetarian options as well as meat options, so something for everyone. Nothing that stands out over any other local restaurant, but worth a try for the margaritas.

We were visiting from Texas and needed a Tex-Mex fix after all the good Italian on the Hill. El Agave did the trick!!! Believe it or not the Combination Platter numbers are the same and pretty much taste the same. We loved it!!!! Thanks TripAdvisor friends for the recommendations.

This was our second visit. We came back because we enjoyed it the first time and we will definitely return. Not your typical cheesy Mexican restaurant. Very tastefully decorated. And spotless. Polite staff. Unique menu with lots of expected dishes too. I had one of the specials and while I forget the exact name, I can best describe it as... More

We go there as a family almost every Friday night and we love it. The servers are very friendly, almost all of them from Mexico. The food is wonderful and the menu is a lot of variety. If you can't find something you like keep looking there's lots to choose from. I love El Agave!

It took over an hour to get our food with no explanation or concern from the staff. Every table in the restaurant had someone turning or standing up trying to locate their server. Probably the most pathetic service I have ever experienced. The chips were hot but tasted old, as if they had been fried in very old oil. Salsa... More

The Margaritas are cheap ($2.99) and the chips are fresh. The salsa is nothing to write home about--necessary to add hot sauce(s) for flavor. The bean dip here is generous and delicious.

El Agave is, by local standards, a large Mexican restaurant, and it offers everything you would expect in a good Mexican menu. The El Mariachi has a little bit of everything and is full of flavor. There are several great shrimp dishes, and there are those of us who could make a meal out of nachos and the best cheese... More

We were passing through the area and saw this restaurant was the best rated on Trip Advisor for mexican food. We went just before noon and were glad we missed any lunch rush. Our waiter was rude, inattentive, and busy visiting with other employees. We had to find him to get a straw for my sons cup(the first one he... More

Service was fair , but the waiter was also the bartender. It was a late lunch and not to busy so I guess other staff didn't come in until dinner. Food was good and chips & salsa were really great. .Good atmosphere & Buck99 Marguritas.

Thank Andy W
