Great food for great price. Greeter didn't have much of personality. Wait staff was busy but still made sure everyone was taken care of in a timely manner.

The chips are good but the sauce was average. The portions are large and the price is good. The food though was just lacking in the spicy flavor that I expect from Mexican food.

We visited Agave on Cinco de Mayo and had a great meal. Chips were plentiful; salsa had just the right bite and the meal was delicious. Very busy night, but our server kept up. Tops in the T.C.
