We were passing through Warrenton on our way to D.C. and stopped at El Agave for dinner. The food and salsa were fairly good. The service was ok. On the whole, it was a good value.

I only find myself through the area once in a blue moon, but each time I make a trip to El Agave and am never disappointed. Truly great selection at very reasonable prices. Intermittent customer for life.

Very colorful atmosphere. Every chair and booth are decorated with unique hand-painted southwestern scenes. The walls tastefully display framed works of art. Attire is very casual. Food and service are outstanding. More than ample parking available.
