We had the chimichanga, salad, taco and the complementary salsa. All were very tasty and portions sizes were good. The wine special pino grigio was good at only $4.

We were staying next door at the Comfort Suites, and, though we usually just dash out for fast food when we're traveling between Florida and Wisconsin, the front desk clerk recommended Agave, so we decided to try it. Most of the time, when we go to a Mexican restaurant, we don't think it measures up to our favorite (Tres Locos... More

We ate here on Thursday and had excellent food & service. After a bad experience at another restaurant in Mt. Vernon this evening, we decided to go back to Agave. Again, the food was great and the service was also outstanding.

We spent the night at the Super8 right across the parking lot, so we stopped in here for supper about 7:30pm. They weren't very busy, so the service was super fast and it was not loud.

We stopped here for supper on the way from INDIANA to Mississippi. The staff was very friendly, but a little on slow side. Our food came out to us and it was not hot. You could tell it had sat and cooled for a while. The El pastor tacos were imitation also. A little disappointed.

We reserved the "party room" for a business meeting for 12. This room was not closed off from the main dining area which was very loud. Food was good, not great. Service was acceptable. Prices were very good.

Had great service, food came quick, and was the best Mexican Food I have had in years. Great prices and a lot of food. I definitely will eat there again when I am in Mt Vernon.

Ordered the Carne Asada, which I had eaten at other Mexican restaurants, but not here. This was a completely different presentation, was very tasty and good.
