Very friendly, delicious food, nice casual atmosphere, very willing to work with you for requests like 'hold the mushrooms' or 'extra spicy, please.' There are many options, including vegetarian and children's meals. The margaritas are very good.

Great restaurant, very very good food served in a clean and friendly environment! This is a consistently pleasant place to go, with easy access from Hwy 29N. The Fajitas Texacanos are out of this world! Prices seemed really reasonable to me, especially for such nice fresh food. I'll certainly be back!

We've eaten in El Agave many times over the years and the food and service are consistently good. The staff is friendly and efficient and we've never had a bad meal here. You can't go wrong with El Agave.

We enjoyed our dinner here. I ordered something I never get. It was Ok I don't think I would get it again. Salsa was great and the service was good. I am glad we picked this place for dinner. We enjoyed it.

Last night we had a delicious dinner at El Agave in Ruckersville, Va., for the second time in a week - and we loved it both times! We do not like spicy food, so we chose the Vegetarian Fajitas, and enjoyed them so much! The taste was terrific and there was so much food, we were able to share one... More

I stopped by El Agave for a late lunch. I was quickly seated as it was around 230 pm. I was able to order off the lunch menu. I had the beef burrito. The restaurant has easy access for north bound US 29 traffic. Friendly staff took good care of me..

Love the Ceviche and the Steak and Shrimp! Eat here probably once a month as a way to keep the wife from cooking. Always enjoy the food.

This was a wonderful end to a hectic day. Pleasant atmosphere. Very nice staff and extremely helpful. Shrimp quesadila was very flavourful.

Only issue is somewhat difficult to find. Restaurant is... More
