I had been here before but today I was very disappointed. I doubt I will ever return. The man at the register was so unfriendly and when I took the take out home the portions were almost non existent. I certainly wish I had my $35.00 back.

Friendly service, good food, fair prices. The ACP is very good. Their chicken soup is excellent. Have stopped to pick up soup to take home. They offer free dessert.

This place beats the pants off of the other Mexican restaurants in Mayberry. The chicken rice and pineapple dish is out of this world and it was only seven bucks.

I love El Agavero. The food is authentic and delicious, it is very affordable, and the staff is super friendly. I have never been disappointed in a visit there. The atmosphere is mediocre, but the staff's warmth and the quality of the food more than makes up for that. It's worth a visit. Best Mexican food in town by far.

Sanitation grade 99.5. We eat here regularly..about once or twice a month or so. Not just best Mexican food in town but I think best restaurant in general...seriously. Consistently great..fresh ingredients, good service and $1.50 cold draft 12 oz beer. Try Molcajete..spicy hot with whole fried jalapeño and whole large green onions, tender sliced beef, chicken, chorizo, sliced avocados...so good.... More

My husband and I have been to three Mexican Restaurants in Mount Airy so far, and this is the best. I know there is another one ranked higher than this one, but we don't know why. This one had much better food. I wasn't as thrilled with the salsa. It wasn't bad at all. I just thought it needed a... More
