Stopped here for lunch on our way into town. My spouse had carnitas enchiladas which were great. I had a quinoa salad with lots of veggies and avocado. Delicious. Only downside was slow service.

Patio dining ...busy and noisy but great food and service. Large party accommodated well. They cleared my drink while I was away from the table ....other than that it was all good.

Generous portions, reasonably priced, so-so quality. Good margaritas. Rushed patrons out the door the day we dined there so they could close up at 9 pm.

This restaurant has great Mexican food. A friend of mine once said you can judge a Mexican restaurant by it's salsa and it's guacamole. Agave Maria did not disappoint. The atmosphere is very nice. I enjoy the out door seating. Wait staff was pleasant and...More
