It's been almost a year since my last visit to El Agave. We joined some friends there the other night and it was actually worse. I'm so disappointed - we used to eat there all the time and it was good. On this visit, the food had no flavor, the tortillas were dry, silverware was dirty and the wall in... More

This used to be a local favorite for Mexican... nice patio area, owners/managers and employees always made you feel welcomed. Service was good, food was good and consistent. Last few times we gave it try was disappointed. Place is dirty, food is bland and service was poor. After talking to others that frequented in the past agree that it has... More

Large selection of foods. Average taste. Outside eating area for seasonal times. Large restaurant. Waiters could have better personalities. Found a hair a few times in my food there. They refunded the plate but still. We only go there when we are REAllY hungry.

This place was pretty good. Not the best Mexican food,but certainly not the worst. Salsa's weren't the greatest.

We were advised to try this restaurant by the staff at the motel where we were staying. The food and service was excellent. Portions are gigantic and we brought enough leftovers back to the motel for another dinner. We later spoke with others who had been there and all were impressed.

El Agave in Pacific, Mo was always our go to Mexican Restuarant when we lived nearby. The margarita's are the best I've ever had. Their menu is extensive & they will modify anything you order to your liking. I've never had a bad meal there.

Really enjoyed very authentic Mexican fare. Price was fair. Salsas are made in house and are flavorful without being overpowering. However, tortillas were a bit dry and cracked when rolled. Chips were average.

Pacific doesn't have much, but that doesn't stop El Agave from being a diamond in the rough. The food is good and reasonably priced, the staff are all friendly and the restaurant is clean. There's nothing out of the ordinary on their menu (standard Mexican fare), but honestly, every meal I've had there was a good one and its location... More

This is a pretty good place for authentic Mexican. The staff and managers are authentic to the genre. The food typically comes out very quickly. Some of the dishes have been excellent, while some others just average. I love their house nachos so much I often get them as my entire meal! Wait staff is friendly and prompt. The prices... More
