Mexican
With a passion for family and food the Lujan sisters came together to open Agave Azul Kitchen & Tequila Bar in 2012. Their goal was to bring together a gathering of authentic Mexican home cooking that stuck to their roots. Their family originated from Zacatecas, Mexico and then came to Hughson, California to begin farming. With this heritage came recipes passed down from generation to generation. Food was the center of their life and growing up on a local farm allowed their family to cook at home with food grown on their land. Sandra and Gabby originally had the thought of opening Taqueria El Agave, but it quickly transformed into a full kitchen serving some of their favorite dishes such as pollo con crema y rajas. The unique thing about Agave Azul is their attention and focus to the quality of each of the ingredients that goes into their recipes and their commitment to never sacrificing on quality home grown ingredients.

    The food is always good here. The servers seem flustered every time we come. We asked for a straw for our daughter’s water cup times. My husband ended up attempting to get one himself because we were seated outside, they said they would bring it to him and he said we never got a straw until we asked four times and waited over 15 minutes.

    The cups used for water were dirty and still had lipstick marks on them. The table was broken and had to find a spot to place our drinks so they wouldn’t fall. Service, food and drinks were great but lacking on cleanliness and their care of their furniture.

    This is hands down the best Mexican restaurant in the area. They have a fabulous craft bar, a diverse menu, and an amazing weekend brunch!

    The owner obviously doesn’t care because they have the worst service. We’ve been going there, regularly for a few years now and the service just keeps declining while the foods great. The drinks are great, but absolutely worst service.

    Hello this is Sandra one of the owners here at Agave & I would like to say first of all that we do care very much about our customer service & everything with Agave Azul. We're sorry to hear that you've had many bad experiences here at agave & do appreciate you coming back. We're always working with our staff to better our service in every way but unfortunately times have changed as well as peoples work ethic & it's something that has affected many businesses & because of that we really try to find people that care & love the industry, but we know it's not always the case. Our customers are our priority& we do our best to provide the best experience. We just want you to know that we are aware & constantly working with our staff to improve. We hope to see you back soon!

    The place was nice, but with all due respect, my birthday was ruined by the limited time. Although I read the policies about time and the limit on the number of people in the email confirmation, I don’t agree with these restrictions because they emotionally affect the attendees during the event, causing stress. I understand that they do this to maximize profits, but I believe that the customer’s peace of mind and satisfaction are more valuable. Of the 15 guests at my party, many more potential customers could have been gained through their recommendations, but now these 15 will not return due to this poor experience. Therefore, I do not recommend hosting large events here. Instead, I suggest the restaurant ‘La Parrilla’ in Oakdale, which is excellent for big celebrations. Personally, I prefer La Parrilla and will not return to Agave Azul for special events, as they do not feel special at all.

    We love Agave Azul Brunch. We had a reservation for the outdoor patio. There was a DJ playing which we have never experienced. The music was so loud you couldn’t hear anyone else talk. There was only one other table at the end of the meal b it they still had the music blaring even when we asked if it could be turned down. I don’t think they understood that most of the people thought it was too loud. Service is sometimes slow and clunky on the patio. That was the same. We had to ask for utensils, napkins, water, etc. Food was good as usual. The flies are back so I’m hoping they provide more fans outside. I would rather have fans than the DJ.

    Food is always delicious and I love how different it is. The service could be a lot a lot better for being no one there and just opening an hour before our reservation. We constantly were needing refills and they didn't give us a lot of attention to make sure we were doing ok. Love this place but they can do a lot better in the customer service area. Tons of workers and lack of attention to us.

    Our experience wasn't too bad. The server was nice, but it took a while to get our drinks. Our food wasn't the best. The fish taco's were dry and little to no taste. Overall, everything else was good
