I truly enjoyed my evening at the Agave Restaurant....my meal started with a dirty Martini and a Caesar salad -- the dressing was homemade and so flavorful. I ordered the Filet Mignon Tournedos Rossini as my main course, the Filet was excellent, so tender (like cutting butter) and the mashed potatoes complimented the Filet so well. I choose the creme...

Our waiter (Zachary/Taylor) was wonderful....checked with chef for food due to allergies and diet. The chef could not have been anymore accommodating to give us a truly wonderful meal. Quality and presentation was beautiful.

Loved everything about the restaurant. Located in a separate building from the casino so no casino noise and smoke free. Sunday night was prime rib special (2 for $26) but you could also order from menu. We all had the prime rib and it was amazing. I seldom order because of the fat. All four were lean and cooked to...

We had the Sunday prime rib special several weeks ago and it was delicious. We hadn't been to Agave in about 3 years due to a horrible experience. After returning last night for the same wonderful meal, we were sorely disappointed. Our medium rare request was met with raw meat that was taken back and rendered grey by the microwave.... More

Four of us ate there over the holidays for a special holiday meal. The prim rib must have been sliced on a lunch meat slicer.It was that thin.the order got mixed up and Med rare was well done.The desert was hard and dry and ineatable

On the way back to Tucson from the Tubac Arts Festival, we decided to stop here for lunch. We both ordered their fish and chips ($11). For some reason, I got four pieces of fish and my wife only got three, of the exact same size. (Is this a "Women eat less thing?") The chips (fries) were very good and... More

Noticed they have a two for $29.95 Prime Rib Special on Sundays so we decided to take advantage of that bargain! All four of us ordered the prime rib, med rare. We elected to try the fried Avacado for $5 and that was a delight. Our dinners arrived on hot plates and the prime ribs were outstanding. Generous portions were... More

In comparison to their buffet the Agave is overpriced and service is mediocre. In all fairness we've only eaten there twice but I wouldn't go back a 3rd time. Their buffet in the casino is 100 times better and even their grill is better which we use often for a quick lunch.

Very good food and service. Cannot beat 2 for $20 lunch here. Not rushed. Outside the casino by the auditorium.
