This is a family run business. It is really casual, stop in on the way home from a day out on the Yuba, etc. GREAT food. I am hooked on their 3 agave tacos-ala carte. No beans, no rice. For me, the 3 tacos are enough. Steve loves their carniitas taco salad...reasonably priced food. Great staff & they have 2... More

Good food and nice people. I have had better Mexican food it's not 5 start, but it is good. Ordered the chicken chimi last visit and liked it was cooked perfectly. Need to be more generous with salsa only complaint. Very nice family owns the place. Will be back

I eat at this place about every 2 months . Not many choices for Mexican food in foothills. Friendly family dinning and safe. One good thing is homemade tortillas. Prices are reasonable also.

This place is a cut above the average taqueria. They offer table service as well as take out. They also have traditional plates (shrimp dishes, pork dishes, etc.) I ordered their three street tacos, which contained generous portions of meat. It was almost too much food. Their ala carte menu doesn't include individual tacos, but I think that the next... More

This place has great fish tacos. This time I tried the Camarones Rancheros, also very good. Guacamole order was okay, a bit watery. Service was fast and friendly.

My family and I dine here every few weeks and we enjoy the food and the people who work here. The food is of good quality but the service-not only the expected service (water, chips etc) but they continually show exceptional kindness and a great memory.

This is the newest mexican restaurant in Auburn. There are plenty of them, but this is one very good. The owners just opened and they shared their story with us. Always nice to learn about them. The food was very good and service excellent.The portions were good sized and reasonably priced.

El Agave is next to Starbucks on Combie And 49. Not fancy, but clean, modern, and totally welcoming by the family who owns it. Take it from someone who eats there regularly, there is no better Mexican food in Nevada or Placer counties. Amazing value, try their taco-truck style tacos for under two dollars (includes salsa and chips!) or huge... More
