We walked in during the Wine Walk, so we knew that it was going to be pretty busy in there. Our wait was just about 30 minutes, which was our quoted time. The first thing I noticed though, when I walked in was that the restaurant smelled like B.O. We were going to wait in the bar and have a drink, but it was packed and smelled like stale high school gym air. Our waiter, probably ticked because we only ordered water and asked if they had drink specials, and split check, rushed us in ordering-he asked us for an order maybe 5 minutes after we received our menus. On the plus side, our water came out quickly. I ordered the chicken fajitas; definitely tasty and a good amount. The only complaints with our food that we had was that my friend's cheese enchiladas came out cold. I wasn't too impressed by the attitude of our server. But on the plus side again, the BO smell faded as we got to our table...that or we got used to it.

Agave Azul offers delicious food in a really beautiful setting. It is located on the historic downtown Carrollton square. They have lots of different dishes and especially good seafood. Their tortillas are homemade and delicious. They also have a great bar with the best margaritas!

Agave is an upscale Mexican restaurant located in the heart of downtown Carrollton. The setting is great, feels very urban. They are know for their margaritas - they offer so many selections. The nachos and enchiladas can't be beat. Agave offers outdoor seating as well, which is fun.

THis place has wonderful salsa! I love the cute location and the fact that if you eat too much you can walk off some of the calories while looking at shops afterwards! Great place!

Agave Azul was wonderful when it was on Frankford, but the location was just awkward. When they relocated to downtown Carrollton that made the atmosphere great.

The food is very good, and they have decent size portions and excellent Chile Rellanos, enchiladas, and Chimichangas. The selection of tequila is the best because you can sample many that you probably have never even heard of.

Not really Tex Mex they have several Mexican food items that are cooked with tequila and always the service and the food are wonderful. A great place to go and have a margarita (strong and tastey) and a nicely priced meal. You'll feel like you're downtown without the traffic or parking hassles.

I've been here several times over the past couple of months now, and EVERY TIME I love the experience and wish I could stay longer. The service and staff are always tops - everyone here is friendly and you can tell they have a great team who work really well together. The food comes out hot and spot on. I'm not a critic but I do love Mexican food and every dish I've tried has been superb. I usually choose a chicken dish of some sort or some times just nachos and soft chicken tacos. They have a lot of fun patrons in there a lot - I've met some great people from the area & some traveling on business. You need to check out their bar for Happy Hour - fun times! It's really beautiful here with their design and the iron work is awesome. Looking forward to eating out on the patio one of these upcoming weekends. I highly recommend!

We keep our reviews consistent and grade Mexican Restaurants on the 6 key points:

1. Tortillia Chips - Warm, flavorfull, and delicious
2. House Salsa(s) - 2 types, Roasted Red Pepper Salsa, and Salsa Verde. Both excellent.
3 Tortillias - Warm, homemade, thick and a great compliment to queso
4 Queso -White queso, served warm and flows smoothly
5 Fajita's -Excellent Carne Asada with a flavorfull marinade that does not overpower the meat
6 Margaritas -Incredibly tasty and reasonably priced

Beyond these 6 key points, the atmosphere is wonderful. The space is dimly lit with excellent light fixtures which bring a comfortable feeling to the authentic Mexican outlay. We were impressed with the Tequila Bar which is separated from the main restaurant by a transparent wall. Restaurant patrons can see the bar without being bothered by the noise it may exude.

We don't often rate something with 5 stars, but in this case we can't resist. The service was a little slow, but this should be expected at mid-priced Mexican Restaurants. We highly reccomend Agave Azul on all measures at it's price point level. Even if Carrolton is not around the corner, it is worth the drive.

Enjoy,

I decided to give Agave Azul a try after hearing about the great food. Unfortunately, I never had the opportunity as my party left after waiting 45+ minutes. We were repeatedly told we were the next to be seated (party of 5), but instead watched as similar sized parties were accomodated while we waited. I say avoid at all costs at periods of high traffic as they have limited seating and service is chaotic at best, one of the more frustrating non-dining experiences I have ever had.
