Our new prospective restaurant was decided on a whim. Introducing the newest review on El Agave Mexican Restaurant. They are located at 3236 North Rock Road in the same building strip as Buffalo Wild Wings. They used to about a block north but moved into this building recently.
Upon seating, our drink orders were promptly taken and served. We were given plenty of chips and salsa to snack on before our meals came out. The salsa was good. We went through an endless amount of bottles of salsa. Most of us rated it below On the Border’s salsa, better than Carlos O’Kelly’s salsa and on par with Playa Azul’s. We also ordered a side of guacamole that by the end of lunch was still 80% full. We were not pleased with the guacamole at all.
How about the meals? Between the four of us we ordered the fajitas, two enchilada combo, the chimichanga, and a burrito. My chimichanga was ok; it was very small compared to the chimichanga lunch sizes I’ve seen at other places. The beef was seasoned well and the tortilla wasn’t too hard. The rice was a little bit of a letdown. My friend wasn’t too pleased with his enchilada nor was my friend who ordered the burrito. My friend who ordered the fajitas did like his meal though and said he enjoyed the place.
So in the end that was 1 of 4 of us who gave it a thumbs up. The service was outstanding, the price were on par with what you find elsewhere but the food left a little to be desired. Unfortunately it may be unlikely we’d go back.
