We visited Agave on Cinco de Mayo and had a great meal. Chips were plentiful; salsa had just the right bite and the meal was delicious. Very busy night, but our server kept up. Tops in the T.C.

Great food for the whole family. Authentic Mexican food and even the chips are homemade at the restaurant. This is another place that caters to food allergies.
