We came on a Sunday before dinner rush. The food was excellent! The manger was working the floor helping along with the staff which was wonderful to see. She came by to see and make sure everything was good. She also suggested the tres leches dessert which was phenomenal. Will be returning due to such a hospitable staff and flavorful cuisine.
I frequent this special restaurant every couple of days since I love the ambiance that is exist in this place. The crew is highly loyal and qualified. The service is exceptionally efficient. Not to mention, the food they prepare is great. I frequent many times and I was always joyful. The cost is decent. I highly recommend this restaurant to to everybody.
I WAS LOOKING FOR A MEXICAN FOOD THAT TASTE LIKE MEXICAN FOOD FROM LOS ANGELES. FINALLY I FOUND EL AGAVE IN MCDONOUGH
THERE IS A PERSON NAMED" GUSTAVO" HE IS THE COOK. THIS GUY CAN COOK ANY MEXICAN DISH. HE IS SO POLITE AND I LOVE HIM!
ANNA IS THE FIRST PERSON THATS GREETS YOU SHE IS AWESOME.
WHEN YOU GO ASK FOR "GUSTAVO"
I loved the food and the service. It was a nice clean place with fast friendly service. My wife and I got the Texas cheese dip for a starter. I got the seafood nachos it was very good I loved it. My wife got the camarones al mojo de ajo she didn't like it that much because it wasn't seasoned very well, it could have used some salt. Overall it was great food and a good price with great service.
On Saturday Oct 24th, my family and my fiancée relative and family went to this restaurant to eat and enjoy ourselves. Nice establishment. We were kindly seated by a hostess. Waitress took our drink orders and brought out chips and salsa. About 25 mins into sitting and about to order our specialty drinks and food. The manager came out and ask can we move to another location. Manager told us that it was reserved for a party of 14 people. At this point we looked at the lady and said why do we have to move for a party when the hostess or your establishment did not reserve or even marked out the seating for the party. So we ended up having to move with our children to tables that was literally on a slanted slope with the corner not covered that I personally sat in and got rained on... Manager was being an disrespectful telling us are we gonna be mad if so then let me know now and antagonizing us. My Fiancée relatives told her she wasn’t being considerate nor did not care that she forced us to move. Manager did not care about how we the paying customer would feel. Manager disrupted her other customers peace and social distancing. When we decided we was gonna leave, some ladies stopped us to allow us to move back to our location. We stopped and talked to the ladies who sat across from us and the lady agreed that manager did not handle it in professional way. Ended up not using our table where we first sat at. Then while my fiancée was talking to the ladies and the manager came all the way from inside and put hands on my fiancée. It’s COVID, manager has no right to put hands on customers. When my fiancée responded told manager not to put hands on her. Manager kept antagonizing and disrespecting us. We eventually left. Worse experience and will not come back. If that person was the owner, that’s no way to treat customers. If your not the owner then corporate needs to fire you immediately.
I went for dinner with my husband and was never waited on. And another customer had a dirty glass sent it back twice Manager comes out dips a napkin in their water and started cleaning the class at the table. We got up and left.. unsanitary and rude..never shall I go to that business
The food is delicious. The server is not so great. Food was delayed and we had to ask for everything (e.g. extra menu, extra napkins, extra drink refills). There was a salmon that took a minute which is slight expected because it’s seafood. However, everyone had finished their meal and we were still waiting on the salmon. The salmon was taken to go, but it was put on the wrong person’s check/bill. Luckily, we caught this and were not charged for the salmon at all. But it was just like I was begging for decent service and the check error could have been avoided. The food was well prepared. The food saved this review.
I recommend the El Agave Special, Seafood Nachos, or Chicken and Shrimp dish (forget the exact name so please ask server).
Because my group arrived later than we anticipated, we were so hungry we drove in without taking photos.
I’ve been coming to this restaurant for many years and never thought about posting a review. My experiences are always AWESOME!! I have what seems to be a difficult order when ordering my steak tacos. Almost EVERY server gets it wrong, in the very southern state, even after I ask them to repeat my order to me (this is way my order seems to be difficult). Tania, my server has been getting it right for years. She seems to remember me or she just pays attention and to details. Thank you Tania
Their service has greatly diminished. They won't pick up the phone for to-go orders in the middle of the pandemic! Really?? Their whole attitude stinks at the front door. Just dont give a... I will be going to other restaurants for Mexican cuisine. La Michoacana is nearby. They care about staying open.
The Host and my waitress were so kind and friendly. I enjoyed the super fresh Primavera Salad with shrimp The complimentary salsa and chips were also fresh and delicious. Make sure you grab a Margarita while there if you indulge.
Yesenia and Annais was so sweet ! They very informative about the menu, my entree was delicious and the service was fast and the food was fresh ! I love this spot , see you soon El Agave Mexican restaurant.
This place is the worst place I’ve ever done business with when it comes to online ordering. Every time I have ordered online they have failed to put the order in. It’s a waste of time. They forget and try to put the order in once you get there and mention it. Last time I ordered a shrimp salad at 11:50am. The email said it would be ready at 12:15pm. I got there at 12:15 and the lady didn’t put the order in and told me it would only take 10 mins. I waited and after 10 mins it still wasn’t ready so I left. There are plenty of other places nearby serving salads. This is the third time this has happened so I will not be coming back. My time is important.
Why have an “order online and choose a TIME” option if you’re not going to check it. Put in a order and picked the time, got there to hear “ I don’t see it” then later say “ohhh it’s right here”. Now you have to cook it and now we have to wait 45 mins to get it. The whole point of choosing a time is because you don’t have the time to sit and wait.No, I’m sorry for the inconvenience and no good customer service. Food is not that great to go again and experience this kind of service.
Service was terrible. Ordered some drinks and they came in the wrong size addressed it to them 3 times and they said 3 different things. Waitress had a very bad attitude and was very rude when we asked questions or needed something . The food was burnt and stuck to the skillet. I was very unsatisfied with this place.
Bad customer service..served side salad as chalupa. Didn’t slice quesadilla or serve any dipping sauce to eat with. Manager wasn’t willing to do anything about because she told me they are not an authentic Mexican restaurant. Will not be returning.
Food was delicious but my husband had to get up and grab the server. She was friendly when she came over but she didnt come to ask what we wanted. All servers were sitting down at a table. (Not sure what they were doing. Maybe a meeting)
Food came out efficiently and even when the food did not come out correct. she swiftly grabbed the incorrect dish and got the new dish.
Hmmm. I enjoy the company I was with. My waiter outside was the bartender inside.... Who look at my crazy for asking for a white russian drink. To the point, she acted like they didn't have the ingredients. I laughed and ordered a large frozen margarita . She was not having me order that thing. The food was okay though I talked more than I ate. Go for the Mexican drinks basically (happy hour).
My girlfriend Maggi and I were heading down to Anna Marie Island from Kansas City, we had a reservation for a hotel in McDonough, Georgia. We both love Mexican food and El Agave was only a few blocks from the hotel. Anytime we see Chili Rellenos on the menu we have to order them. We will definitely stop back on our way home. I Love This Place
To start off the food was great. I got chicken fajitas and they sizzled out the start and tasted great. Everyone's meal was great there was one small problem and it was taken care of right away. The service was friendly but was very very slow. That is the only reason I took one star down.
I went for the very first time to celebrate my parent's birthday. The food was just OK, but the service was bad. They brought our food with a long time difference between each meal. The service was unpleasant. I was discreet and told the waitress that it was my parents' birthday and they would bring each one a dessert. We had the table full of dirty dishes and it took a long time to bring the dessert, we were all desperate to leave. She was the simplest person I've ever met, she just said here it is and put the dessert on the table. She only brought ONE and he didn't even bother to gather the waiters to sing to my parents Happy Birthday. The place had about 5 tables occupied, it wasn't even full to justify the waitress taking so long... I do not recommend this place and I will never come back!!!
My ticket has the date and waitress name: 8/31/19 Selene R.
I ordered the Chori-Pollo. I’ve had this at many other restaurants in the past and it has never included mushrooms on the menu but here it was. I asked for it without. The meal came out quickly but it had mushrooms... I waited another 15 minutes while my wife finished her meal before my fish came back out. It was about 4/10
Besides the meal the restaurant had a DJ playing music extremely loud and a trivia game. Too loud to even have a conversation. He wasn’t even playing the entire songs, just a 15-20 second clip of music at a time.
If your feel your restaurant needs a DJ to get people to show up then the food can’t be that great...
Sorry not sorry...
(Translated by Google) In the menu they do not have drinks or bar prices such as m argaritas and others and the waitress could not explain besides the roast meat was dry and hard.
En la carta no tienen las bebidas ni precios de la barra como las m argaritas y demas y la mesera no sabia explicar además de la carne asada estaba seca y dura .
Food was terrible that's about it. I can't say anything good about this restaurant. had one spoonful of the rice and beans and that was enough ! Oh the Plates are hot but I really don't understand why hot plates.
After reading some of the reviews, we decided to try this restaurant. I was very disappointed with the service!! I had to get up several times to find the waitress for napkins, condiments. She never once came to ask if we needed anything. She was not friendly at all!! The food was just ok.. nothing to go back a second time for. One review said "the best Mexican restaurant in Mc Donough".... Nope!
Cold Beer and Delicious food. That gets nearly 5 stars. The service was TERRIBLE and that affects my rating. Our waitress was often MIA and never returned to check on us after she brought our food out. We literally had to find her in order to place our beer order.
Lets start off at servers = Boring
Long island T = Boring. If I wanted sweet and sour wea would of ordered it which turns out Long island T means sweet and sour on rocks lol. What a joke
Hamburger meat in every damn thing in the dish down to the so called called in the tortilla cup. SEE THE PICTURE.
Way over kill. Then tasted like it was from 2 days ago.
If you ever want real Mexican food.
Drive the distance Casa Grande in austell ga.
Real real Mexico as m food and drinks.
I will never in my life return to eat here.
To the owner of this restaurant.
Please go eat Casa Grande 1 time. Your life of Mexican food will change.
This use to be my go to place but after last week never again the food is always fresh always tasted amazing I ordered the Aztec chicken my girlfriend ordered the seafood burritos and to my surprise the food was so freaking fishy I threw up. The manager came over apologizing for the test and we got to new entree’s they were even worst smh so disappointed
Nice cozy spot. Not too busy for a Saturday evening. Cassandra was quite attentive and helpful. Salsa was delish, will return for that! Had El Agave Special w/o chirizo, tasteful but over cooked. The skinny margarita need some balance, way too tart!...Yuck! Possible for a return...
This is a cozy place to eat, it's clearly seen from the road with plenty of parking spaces, not sure if live music is available on the weekends, I ordered chicken fajitas, a very filling and good tasting meal. If your traveling there is a Holiday Inn Express and Hilton Garden Inn across the road.
I ordered the rib eye steak, medium well and added grilled shrimp. The steak tasted great, the only problem I had was it was cooked a little under. I added pictures to show. I also ordered flan. That was the best part of my dinner! Made perfectly! Could do without the whipped cream on top. The chips that were included are not seasoned so I'm not a fan. Most people dip them in salsa so they don't notice. Everything was packaged very well!
(Translated by Google) Overall, everything was delicious. It was good because I did not have any unpleasant smell unique to Mexican food.
Cancun shrimp came out of bacon with a shrimp and it was good not to cook bacon too closely. A lot of money.
I sprinkled garlic sauce on salmon salad, which was also delicious. Even if it is garlic sauce, it is something refreshing rather than spicy of garlic. My friend who went with me said that I did not want to go home but I was sour and it was okay.
전체적으로 다 맛있었음. 멕시코 음식 특유의 거슬리는 향이 나지 않아서 좋았음.
칸쿤 쉬림프는 베이컨을 쉬림프에 말아서 나왔는데, 베이컨을 너무 바싹 익히지 않아서 좋았음. 양도 많음.
salmon salad에 갈릭 소스를 뿌려먹었는데 이것도 맛있었음. 갈릭 소스라고 해도 마늘의 매운맛 보다는 뭔가 상큼한.. 레몬향 같은 게 더 났던 것 같음. 같이 간 친구는 쉰내나서 싫다고 했는데 나는 새콤하니 괜찮았음.
Service is always good. Margaritas are delicious, chips and salsa are very good (though I do wish they had chipotle salsa), and they are Fast.
I highly recommend the Texas Alambres with extra tortillas, but it really doesn't matter because everything I've ever had here was incredibly tasty.
I HATE Mexican food but my boyfriend drug me here. I had never even been inside before but I've patronized the restaurant beside them for years. I've seen them host bingo and live entertainment outside on the patio before and said I'd go but I just never made it in. But he wanted to eat there and walked in and asked them if he purchased a meal would they allow me to eat food from another restaurant inside. They said yes, which was highly unusual. So now i was intrigued. But when i went in i was blown away by the warm, friendly, inviting atmosphere and gorgeous decor! I was creatively inspired by a painting in their hallway leading to the restrooms. Also, the restroom was clean and modern.The hostess was very friendly and i felt comfortable immediately. Then i heard Selena playing....I was in HEAVEN lol! I even saved the meal i just bought from the other restaurant and bought one from them. If i didn't have to go to work, i would've definitely tried their drink specials. But the food was delicious and hot. The servers were nice and the service was fast.
I've had lunch here twice and both times the food and the service were impeccable. The meat was fresh flavourful tortillas were soft and warm, what more could you ask for. I even find the fact that they'll serve a large beer in a 1-liter mug refreshing considering everyone else charges the same amount of money for 24 oz. Good job guys keep up the great work.
This establishment is horrible! Firstly, I ordered a frozen drink and it came out with suds on the top as if it were a beer. The glass it came in felt hot and the drink inside was VEEEEERY watery! I did not drink it. Also, the manager needs to be replaced. And their policies on ordering food need to be rewritten. If I order something that does not please me and I don’t touch it, you need to remove it from my bill. She was EXTREMELY rude and nasty to us during our time. Worst experience I have EVER had at a restaurant. Will not be returning!!
This place is awesome! The staff is extremely friendly and the portions are generous. The place is very clean, the prices are great for the amount of food you get, and the tortilla chips they bring to the table is always hot! AND they refill them along with the salsa! Will certainly be back here next time I’m down in the area!!
The reason for this is because we were recommended to this restaurant and I have to say we are GREATLY disappointed. You had one worker on the phone cussing and calling them f*****g dumba**es (whom ever messed up his food). My son was with us. They also need to invest some of their money into the food and not decor. Was totally disappointed. We won't be eating here again. Not to mention a high bill.
Food average. Server nice. Margaritas average. Nickel and dimed us to death... ordered a pitcher of margaritas. (20$ packed to the rim solid with ice)
I like them plain. My sister likes a bit of strawberry or raspberry in hers. So, as we always do, we ordered a pitcher of plain, two glasses and a shot of strawberry (extra 1$) Added a second shot of strawberry a bit later (another 1$) Ordered Texas Fajita Nachos (good) side of sour cream (small shot glass size, extra 1$) In all fairness, maybe in GA this is normal and we are spoiled rotton with numerous authentic, top shelf, mexican restaurants in Toledo, Ohio where authentic mexican dishes are served with the sides that that make the dish what it is (sour cream, lettuce, tomatoe, pico, etc.) included with the dish. I can say that on our next time passing through the area, El Agave will not be our 1st choice for an appitizer and beverage. I actually feel bad giving a negative review but facts are the facts.
