It took nearly an hour to get served our meal and then it arrived only warm, not hot. My wife ordered a ground beef enchilada and a shredded beef was served. My pork was listed as a speciality of the house but it too was...More

My family and I love this restaurant. I moved up from So Cal and have high standards for authentic Mexican Cuisine. Not only is the food delicious, the owners and employees treat us like family. Try the Camerone Diablo, or just a shrimp quesadilla. 👍

El Agave was very authentic food and excellent service. While the location in a strip mall is nothing exciting, the food more than makes up for it. They have a small selection of beers and wine too.

Absolutely love this restaurant for good Mexican food. I cannot pass up their shrimp burritos with green sauce. Half at dinner and half the next day for lunch. Their shrimp cocktails are amazing. Top it off with a Modelo Especial on tap and it is...More

We ordered the chicken fajita, a bean burrito and a pork & a beef enchilada. Out of everything the chicken fajita was eaten by everyone. My husband couldn't tell the difference between the two enchiladas. Said they both tasted the same. I don't know about...More
