Cien Agaves Tacos & Tequila – Old Town
We were seated in front of the door and freezing cold the entire time. Service was very slow. Probably will not return.
The atmosphere here was really cool, the food was good and the house margs were legit. They seated us right on time but must have missed our preference for regular seating because we ended up at a high top. All around a fun stop!
I reserved hit too seating, but was seated at a regular table.
Took a long time to get food. Waitress & Manager both apologized for delay but the restaurant did not seem to be overly busy
Just nothing impressive. I find it a tourist trap of a restaurant in old town Scottsdale. If you want more American style Mexican, quick and just some food to put in your belly great place to go. Probably great if you plan on drinking your night away as well, lots of drink options. My drink was good but very sugary coconut margarita. Would I chose to go back? Probably not. But would I tell people it’s a bad place? Probably not either. Just not a lasting impression. Hope this helps!
Great atmosphere and good food! Our server did a great job!
The $2 Tuesdays beef tacos were surprisingly delicious 😋! And the churros were out of this world 👍🏻! We were under the stairs, so missed a bit of the ambience.
We are visiting Scottsdale and Cien Agaves was suggested by a friend who visited a week ago. The Cien a ritas are delicious. The happy hour 1/2 price appetizers could have been our meal. Great food. Highly recommend this restaurant.
The restaurant was 45 minutes late for our reservation, and when dinner arrived, the food was luke warm at best. We have been there many times, i think this was a one off.
Great food for a great value!
Fun place with great food! We started with the guacamole. It was delicious. For the main dish we had a fajita bowl and a chicken chimichanga. Both were very well prepared, presented nicely and, most important, were very tasty. It was our first visit but we will definitely be back and we’ll bring friends next time!
Bar was constantly behind. Had to cancel final drink order as we were done with food before it was ready. Food was medlar best. Would find another place for Mexican food while in Old Town Scottsdale.
Food was great!
Made a reservation for 10 ppl on NYE last minute. They accommodated for additional seating last minute, and even had our table set up with water and chips by the time we arrived which was super convenient. Great service!
Best Happy Hour!!!
The shrimp tacos were delicious. The carnitas were very dry
Terrible food! The black beans were so salty that could not be eaten. The fish was bad and the tequila for the margarita was cheap! Never going there or recommending this place
The poblano crema soup was outstanding... Cool vibe... Mas tequila...
Great atmosphere. Good food.
Great food...poor table
Delicious food, great margaritas, and good service, but this was the loudest restaurant I have ever been in! Definitely made it hard for our party of 6 to talk and enjoy each other’s company.
Excellent tacos and desert sundae was wonderful.
This was my first time and I will definitely be back and would recommend. My friend and I sat down and our drink order was taken right away. It was happy hour so the server advised us on the house margarita as well as other specials. The house margarita was fantastic! We were chatting so we were a little slow to order food. In that time, the manager came over and informed us that the kitchen had made an extra carnitas cheese crisp and asked if we would like it. Absolutely! It was SOOOO good! I loved that the edges were a little extra done, exactly how I like it. The carnitas flavor was amazing and she told us that it was a previous chefs grandmothers recipe! We ordered the chips and guacamole which reminds me a little bit of Barrio Queens guac with pomegranate seeds on top. Such a delightful addition. You could tell when happy hour kicked into full force because the noise level did too. It wasn’t too bad though and it died back down. Food, drinks, service, atmosphere, and price were all amazing.
An overall fun dining experience as always.
We found this by chance and what a great spot for our group!! Loved it!
We love authentic Mexican food in an authentic atmosphere. This is by far the best spot in the valley.
Birthday but they took the reservation and called me 30 minutes before to say they only had a table outside. It ended well with a high top for 10 inside but they should make sure when a reservation is taken they set up the tables.
We met some out of town guests here and had a great time. I would come back again.
We went here because the one in North Scottsdale was awesome. This one has a tiny patio, no sun but nice and quiet so we could visit with friends. Music inside restaurant was really,really loud and need to yell at your table mates! Happy hour is a good value . We all ordered the house margaritas . The table outside had ridges that tipped my glass over and spilled my drink. Told the waiter and he said” oh thats too bad!”. Sooo his attitude was not what i expected! Disappointing. Food was good.
They have the best margarita! The skinny rita and the prickly pear are my favorite! Very good energy and the food and service is amazing! My favorite Mexican food in Scottsdale!
Best food and service! Love, love their Tanga Taco’s and Prickly Pear Margaritas! Best staff ever. Definitely going her again.
Great place for happy hour and they take reservations for some of the year which is a real plus!
Great time, friendly service, very good food with a variety of selections to the menu, the men’s room sink was overflowing all over the floor into the hallway glad I was not downstairs eating! Other then that fun place to have dinner
We loved this place. Very casual, Arizona vibe. Food and drinks are fantastic. Would definitely return!
The cheese enchiladas were amazing! Definitely will be back!
Great food and margaritas! Loved the quiet outdoor patio seating.
Went to Cien Agaves with a group and had a good time! Good food but service was kinda slow even though almost no one else was in the restaurant. Reasonable prices and lots of options!
Excellent, consistent Mexican food. Fun place! The Old Town location is better than the North Scottsdale location.
Great place for food, Mark's, beer, Mexican food. Only downfall is that it is very noisy
Prompt service table was on time and the food was great !
I definitely would go back !
