Poor and tasteless fastfood. We hoped for a spicey and tasty meal! For the price it is just not good enough.

We were in training close by. Ate there two days in a row because of the good menu options. The tortilla soup and taco salad was day one and quesadillas day two. Salsa was unique. We think there was no cilantro but maybe basil? It was good whatever it was. Quick service if you are short on time.

We went here after the Mardi Gras parade and enjoyed a live band. The band on the patio was great and we ordered the enchiladas and carne asada. The carne is grilled steak with two enchiladas which make a cross over the steak which was excellent. I couldn't decide which color sauce to get on my enchilada dinner so opted... More

Agava serves a pretty decent margarita accompanied by live music three days a week. Dine outside when the weather is pretty, it makes for an enjoyable evening.

Visit this place when in town. Food is always hot fresh and cooked to order. The only think I would prefer is fresh chips instead of bagged.

We normally go to the Agave near River Ranch but we were attending a show in Lafayette this evening so we decided to try this location again. It has been a while since we came here. Our server was Devin and he was good enough to get an 18% tip. He and the salsa were the best parts of our... More

Was nice to escape the sun and sit in their colourful and festive shady outdoor patio. In door option available too that has a nice outdoor view and airy feeling. Complimentary salsa and corn chips. Ordered a pitcher of Margarita on the rocks, made well, not to sweet with a good tequila kick. Chicken Quesadilla was large and cheesy with... More

This is a place we go to often with friends and it's always mixed reviews. They have local bands every weekend so you definitely have great entertainment. Food not always on point. Had some instances where food was not good and other times food was decent. Some people love it some people hate it. So it seems it just goes... More

We were in town for Cinco de Maya so we decided to do Mexican food even though we were in Cajun country. Band was great, though way too loud for us. We had a great queso dip and tacos. Chips were crisp and good. This is a very popular place!
