We had Guacamole, Quesadillas (Chicken), and Tostada De Pescado. All were very excellent! We will definitely go back on our next time in the Outer Banks.

I dodn't have super high expectations but the food was really delicious and the quesadilla was probably the best I have ever eaten - the meat and veggies were grilled to perfection! The service was a little mixed but still highly recommend!

This is one of our favorite restaurant in Corolla! We always call ahead and make reservations. Everything was delicious, as always. The queso is the best I ever had!

I was excited to meet my friend for lunch here, but we arrived at 1pm and the door was locked. It is open for lunch and the hours clearly posted in window, but it wasn’t open. Disappointed. Wish I could have tried it!

This restuarant is delightfully consistent year after year. Another great meal. We enjoyed the ceviche, seared tuna, chili relleno. Superb.

We found this place purely by chance on our recent family vacation to OBX. The food & service was outstanding! So much so, that we visited twice during our stay. Best meal during our week in Corolla! Agave Roja offers a unique spin to Mexican...More

They do take out orders but not if they're really busy. I would suggest arranging an early pick up

We visited the last week of June, 2012 and they told us they had only been open 10 days. They handled a party of 15 as if they were doing if for years. The salsa was unbelievable! The food was light fresh and delicious!!
