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.

     service was very slow, had a reservation at seven we were there right on time. Couldn’t get a margarita till 745. Our dinner was another 45 minutes. Felt like we had to order two drinks at a time.

    This was our favorite Mexican restaurant. We were extremely disappointed this visit. My son and I had the Azteca Burrito. It was much smaller than it used to be which wasn't a bad thing because it wasn't very good. The chicken was burnt, the sauce wasn't up to their usual standards and the presentation on the plate lacked their former pizzazz. My wife's fried fish tacos were equally underwhelming. It was so bad I don't know if we will go back. The place used to be packed no matter when you went. This time we went on a Saturday night and it was about 2/3 full. That says a lot.

    Always good food! Although we we’re celebrating a birthday, it wasn’t acknowledged like in the past.

    I’ve been here 3-4 others times but it was much busier cuz it was a weekend. Tuesday seemed a bit slower but still busy enough for the crew working. The bartender wasn’t new but sure didn’t know his way around a Bloody Mary/ Cesar drink. What I received some 20 minutes later was closer to a micholada than a bloody Cesar. No tobasco sauce, no vegetable stick, and sure didn’t use much of the Clamato sauce he had in a bottle cus he had no tomato sauce for a bloody Mary. He should have said can’t do due to lack of training or product. Had the bar tender at Texas Roadhouse tell he lack the bitters n dark cherries. Guy at staleys asked if I would show him how to make a old fashion drink, then went on to sell 15-20 more.

    Food and service were excellent. The only drawback is how loud it is - it’s hard to have a conversation.

    Waitress forgot our soup order, after meals were delivered, we said to forget about the soup, waitress answer was “ You will be charged whether you take it with you or eat it here”. If we wouldn’t have been celebrating a friend, we would have left soup on table and NO tip! Terrible customer service! Her error and we get the penalty! Plenty of better restaurants in the area!
