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.

The staff is quite possibly the friendliest in Ruckersville! Their queso dip is quite possibly the best dip on the planet! My husband is addicted to their enchiladas. I don't particularly find anything there 'to die for', but it's a good spot to grab a quick lunch when you are feeling for a little Mexican!

Tasty food, and excellent service. Great selection of Mexican food, always served hot. Their homemade salsa is delicious with just the right amount of Heat.
