This was a place I went often with friends in town. Whenever I get back to NBPT, I always stop for their food and Margaritas. Yummy!

Although we got off to a rocky start because the hostess tried to seat us at a terrible table even though the restaurant was almost empty, we did enjoy our lunch there. One bit of a surprise is that there is a charge for chips...More

Come hungry. Leave full. There's nothing like great Mexican food, especially WHILE you are eating it! Don't miss the nachos. It's a meal for two. With tons of cheese, guacamole and beans. You won't need an entree but have one anyway. We had classic burritos...More

best margarita in a long time; couldn't finish it.. so smooth. Large portions of everything. I went on an off time, so I didn't have any difficulty or wait. Friendly bartender. Good Mexican food.

Food is delicious. Atmosphere is friendly. I was there for dinner with a friend for her birthday. When I mentioned to our server that it was my friend's birthday, she brought out a HUGE dessert, which was on the house. My friend thoroughly enjoyed it!

I live in this town and I can't speak for all Agave restaurants but this one has the BEST nacho platter....called "Agave Nachos". First, their nacho chips are way better than most. Second, there is enough 'stuff' to pile some onto every single chip on...More
