We visit Agave when we are going out for Mexican in our hometown. The food is always tasty, it’s family friendly and the service is fairly good. I have eaten there for both lunch and dinner and have never had a bad meal.

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.
