This is a local restaurant for us. We like El Agave better than others in Ruckersville or Charlottesville. The ingredients are fresh, the portions generous for the cost and the service is friendly and prompt. The dishes are just really tasty traditional type Mexican style dishes. A good variety of choices for meals and desserts. Beware the salsa! It is made fresh and very flavorful, it can be quite spicy & hot. Which is OK if you like it really zingy. The atmosphere is nothing elaborate, but simple, relaxed with a cozy feel. Definitely worth a stop.

Locals recommended this restaurant to us, wish we hadn't listened. We ordered water to start, but I found it so foul tasting ordered a Corona when ordering our food. The salsa was OK, but the chips were tastless and the food wasn't much better - I will call it average. When the bill came, the watress noted I had ordered a Corona that never came. I told her It was too late now and she said it was taken off the bill. Never an appology for forgetting me.

Went for dinner and everything was excellent.
Had the shrimp fajitas and the husband had the carne asada tacos. They don't skimp on anything and we had so much food. Salsa and gauc are so yummy!!

Always reliably good food served quickly by friendly staff. My family has been coming to El Agave since they opened. My son, who now lives out of state, always makes a trip to ElAgave with his friends when he comes home for a visit. My husband's favorite is the Huevos con Chorizo. They know his order before he even says it.

El Agave is a local favorite. Long established, often crowded and a great place to take the family. Great, friendly staff. Food is really good.
