This restaurant has delicious food and the best margaritas in town. We really like the fish tacos, corn on the cob, guacamole and the queso dip. I really like the fact that they accept reservations; otherwise the wait can be long.

Thanks to Agave Rojas for honoring a reservation that they never received. I called another restaurant by mistake while searching for a place to eat. Everything was great. We have been there four times over the last couple of years.

We had a wonderful waiter here who was from Poland. Europeans really know how to mingle with people. The food was very good and the atmosphere was also.

We were recommended to go here from Taco, our driver and from the Wild Horse Adventure Tours. While he wasn't Hispanic, I figured with a name like Taco he should know good Mexican food. In fact, the other family that was on the tour also...More

Known for their tequila and Margaritas which were very good. After being a resident of Texas for many years, the food was an "ad lib" version of what I am accustomed to eating. The food was very salty and makes you want to drink gallons...More

We stopped in between lunch and dinner, so they weren't serving food, only chips and drinks. I think the salsa was the best I've ever eaten. Also good were the guacamole and the margaritas. Sorry we didn't get to have a meal on this trip....More

They do take out orders but not if they're really busy. I would suggest arranging an early pick up

We visited the last week of June, 2012 and they told us they had only been open 10 days. They handled a party of 15 as if they were doing if for years. The salsa was unbelievable! The food was light fresh and delicious!!
