We went here for birthday luncheon. Clean, nicely laid out with a very cheerful hostess/waitress Ashley, who kindly offered ideas about items on the menu. I selected the Tostada Plato with chicken tinga. Very generous portions of refried beans, rice, lettuce, tomato and a surprisingly large amount of freshly made guacamole. Scrumptious!! My friend had a Taco lunch with one... More

I recommended Agave for a holiday work luncheon, total of 10 people. We sat upstairs, the place was not busy. Service was slow to begin with, server came back at infrequent intervals. However, the entrees arrived over a span of 20 minutes. Those who received their entrees felt uncomfortable beginning to eat when others hadn't gotten their food. Three entrees... More

The menu is somewhat limited for breakfast/brunch, but the quality is outstanding. The chips and Salsa are some of the best I have had. The entrée was plentiful and wonderfully seasoned. The serving are very pleantiful.

Went with a group of girlfriends. It was such a fun evening made even better by delicious food & exceptional pomegranate margaritas! The chips & salsa were fresh made, warm chips, and the guacamole was made right at the table. Our waitress was very attentive & fun. Can't wait to go back.

nothing to write home about. My wife got a mango shrimp salad which looked fantastic. I got a tostada salad without tomatoes or sour cream. something might have gotten lost in translation...it was a lot of shredded iceberg, chicken, some cheese....in a tostada shell, and on a small bed of refried beans. No dressing. Pretty rudimentary. Looked like something you'd... More

Chimayred, We appreciate you reaching out to let us know how we're doing here. Unfortunately the item that you had ordered does not come with any dressing and you have selected to not have a couple of the toppings that make the tostada salad. We wish you would have explained your distaste to your server/bartender so we could make your... More

This restaurant was really fun, not much of a wait and great food. All the staff were very nice and super friendly. The food was really good - we had the steak tacos and quesedilla and the were superb. Highly recommend!

Went on a Friday night and the place was very busy. We sat at the upstairs bar which was quiet and clean. Bar tender and staff were great, friendly and helpful. Ordered a 1/2 order of nachos, some of the best we've ever had. Plenty big for 2 -4 people. Entree was great and margaritas were spectacular with a great... More

I do have to admit, hands down BEST Nachos (and I eat Nachos a lot)!! After returning two consecutive nights (I even ordered their spicy hott Margarita) which I never do, I was saddened to see that they use styrofoam!! To keep this in perspective, the fact that one chooses to bring home leftovers which has a 50/50 chance of... More

Thank you so much for your input. Like I said to you in person this past Saturday, I will be talking to the owner of Agave about changing over to biodegradable containers in the future.

We were a party of 5 for a late lunch. Lack of a big enough table on the first floor put us on the otherwise empty second floor. So far so good. Our drinks came and I was surprised at how weak it was so I asked for a shot tequila on the side. Apparently I wasn't the only one... More
