The menu is not exactly like all the other Mexican restaurants. My spouse and I have been here multiple times. It is interesting that this is the place of the former Tequilas, which moved upstreet from this location. Because I have been a big fan of the former owners it was a surprise to be in old surroundings yet a... More

Excellent food. Unfortunately they were having issues with their Internet so paying with a card was a hassle

It was cold outside at 17 degrees and about the same inside. No heat working, but we braved the deep freeze and we're not disappointed. The steak and chicken fajitas was very good. Onions and peppers where nicely charred with the side dish of beans, rice, tomatoes lettuce sour cream is awesome!

New restaurant in a chain of Mexican restaurants. The food is good and fresh but a little lacking in flavor. An extensive menu of popular seafood dishes. We will return soon to check it out again.

Ephrata had rolled up the sidewalks for the Fourth of July, but El Agave was open until evening. Service was attentive, and portions generous--perhaps to a fault.

Love that the plate of food is not drowning in grease like some places. Also their refried beans do not taste like they are made with lard.

Food is good, however they made my husband's food incorrectly twice. I'm in the food service industry, and understand to that mistakes happen, but if you mess it up once, make sure the remake is correct.

Salsa is the best I have had in this town. Fajita's were good but not best in town. Carnitas burrito was really good though.

Pretty darn good. Not the most authentic around, but definitely good. The chipotle chicken is really good. Worth stopping at!
