Went to El Agave for the first time and took two of my friends out for an early dinner. The food was excellent, service was good, but it turned out the drinks cost more than the entire meal. The price of the drinks is not listed on the menu. Turns out a standard Margarita cost $17.95! Beer around the same. Highly recommend for the food, but unless you're willing to pay twice as much for a drink at this restaurant, don't go there.

We paid for catering at Lassila Funeral Chapel and Angela went above and beyond to help us bring the food, set up and break down and pick up.The food was absolutely divine, take it from a true Mexican.Also, we asked to pay in check to avoid the card fee and she was so patient with us.We are forever grateful for their excellent service and amazing food!Thank you! You made it so easy for us during this difficult time of loss.Angela and team get a 10/10Food gets 10/10???

We've passed this place many times. We finally stopped & ate just recently. The staff was courteous, friendly, the atmosphere was warm and cozy. The food was very good, it's a family owned restaurant and they did not disappoint! We enjoy supporting small local businesses in our surrounding communities. Please check them out if you haven't already!!

Every trip I make to Auburn this is one of my must haves. The steak fajitas are amazing. I came on Taco Tuesday and had to wait a few minutes for seating but this place was packed out and the food still came out delicious with minimal wait.Food: 5/5

Grass Valley Hwy in Auburn..The food is wonderful. Very flavorable. Lots of traditional dishes and some were new me. This is the cleanest restaurant ever. Employees worked well together. Manager checked in to be sure our expectations were met.

Good food, great aesthetic, cute furniture and tableware. I ordered birria tacos, they are on the more oily side but very very yummy. They cook their meat very well !

I absolutely LOVE this place! Hands down my favorite Mexican restaurant in Auburn! I forgot to take pictures of the amazing spread they put together for my birthday. I had them put together the food for a taco bar and I added churros. Everything was just amazing and I got tons of compliments on how great the food was. We order from here pretty frequently and I must say I have never once been disappointed in the quality of the food or the taste. Everything is incredibly flavorful with nice sized portions...I always have some leftovers lunch the next day Keep up the amazing work! Y'all are awesome!

Great spot to eat in auburn. Service is top notch and food is always good. Been her a number of times and tried many different things and haven't found anything that wasn't super tasty. This is the Guadalajara Burrito.

This is a nice clean restaurant. There were a lot of customers in the restaurant. I always laugh and say that there are no sad people in a Mexican restaurant! The food was very good however the only thing I would not recommend is their jalapeno poppers.. They are basically jalapenos with a piece of sliced cheese stuck inside. They have no flavor. The salsa was very tasty, the chips are fresh and the guacamole was very good.

Pathetic! Do not go here!The food was decent. The service was horrible, the prices are insane for what you get. I waited 40 minutes (25 of which were after happy hour) to place a drink order. Which no one ever came to get. I had to stop the manager to ask for service. When they finally showed up they just brought the bill.The manager, rather than facing up to the multitude of mistakes told me it was the server's first day. Tried to give me a free cheese dip for my next visit, as if I would ever go back. I saw that server there 2 weeks before when I swung by for a margarita only.There are so many good choices within a mile of this place. Choose anywhere but here.Pathetic!

Service was fast but they charged $5 for pico de gallo which I just wanted a side of with my tacos. Also $2 credit card fee. Felt like I was being nickel and dimed. Food was flavorful, water was refilled quickly.

Friendly, fast service. Festive and lovely atmosphere. Scrummy food! Generous servings. Jamaica was perfect. I had lettuce wrap tacos. Hubby had super tacos. So happy we stopped here.
