First time there today. It was a good place to watch the Seahawks. Bar was full and nearly all were wearing NFL clothing. Drinks were really good. Bloody Mary is a Sunday special for $5! The food is outstanding. Carna asada was a very nice...More

This was a repeat visit for me and it was not so good. Chicken tacos were bland and chicken over cooked this time. Enchiladas very bland as well. Not sure what has happened here, as it was excellent last summer when I came here.More

Ate there at lunch time. Wonderful atmosphere, good food, friendly and quick service. Portions are pretty big, so we had to get a box of leftovers. Try the prickly pear lemonade! It's delicious!

Decent eats, great happy hour prices, but service a bit slow, even though it wasn't busy. Loved the outdoor seating area.

We read the reviews and decided to try it. The staff was very friendly, good service. Prices were good, but too much fried food and the quality wasn't great. However, very good chips and salsa, just not impressed with the bar menu.

Unlike the retail stores surrounding it, you can access Agave from both the front (restaurant) and back (bar) parking lots, which is handy. The Happy Hour menu had a good choice of drinks and food, with chips and salsa etc while waiting. Quesadillas were especially...More

I loved this restaurant. Unlike most Mexican restaurants, this is one where you want to order off the specialty entree section of the menu because they are amazing. The traditional carne asada was amazing. So so so good. The pork carnitas de cerdo was wonderful....More
