Blue Agave was a surprise. The food was visible (not covered in sauces), temp hot, and portioned right. The price was a great value. Our server Britney was attentive and friendly. We had a booth to the far right back and it was quiter there with a good view of other patrons. My husband has the tres ench (1 beef ground but flavorful, chic and cheese). I had the fish taco Friday special $9.99 and there was real chuncks & strips of grilled fish it them! Try the organic margarita. Only complaint is that the margarita is too small. We will be back.

We didn’t know this local place was that popular! It was busy on a Tuesday night. The food, service and live DJ made an ordinary night so much fun! We will definitely return with a group for Margaritas & music!

Food is always great. Making a reservation is pointless because twice now, I’ve made reservations and was left having to wait as non res patrones came in. Staff is nice and attentive once you get seated.

Food was excellent, but our confirmed reservation for outdoor seating was a surprise to the staff although they saw it when they looked it up. There was no seating available outdoors so reservations need to be checked periodically by the staff.

You must come for Taco Tuesday! The tacos are the best: chicken, pork or beef. Fully loaded. Soft shell, hard shell or lettuce wrap. And only $1.89 per taco when you order a drink of any kind. The house margarita is a perfect compliment at an excellent happy hour price! This is my go-to every Tuesday with a fun group of friends!

Made a reservation for restaurant week, specifically chose a restaurant with a patio due to COVID concerns and when we arrived they did not have a server for the patio and thus it was "closed". This was such a disappointment, it was the main reason I chose that restaurant. indoor they did have appropriate social distancing but I felt "tricked" by the false advertising of patio seating. Won't be back, food was just ok.

This was our first time to visit and my wife and I shared the Ultimate Chimichanga. I can say that I have eaten a lot of chimichangas in my life but none better than the Ultimate Chimi at Blue Agave.
