Worst food ever! 3/27/2010

Went to Blue Agave last night and had a horrible experience! My boyfriend had the shrimp fajitas and the shrimp tasted spoiled and overcooked. The refried beans were rancid and the ""fries"" that came with my ribs were stale as was the cole slaw! The margaritas were good but I dont think I would ever return to this place. Not worth the health risk! Pros: Maragaritas are good! Cons: Food tasted spoiled! more

Great food! 6/13/2009

Something must have changed.....older reviews comment on bad, spicy food. I don't like spicy food and I loved this! Had a combo platter and every thing tasted different, not all the same. Great drinks. Husband had a daquiri and was the best he ever had. Friendly waitress and all staff attentive. Fun to people watch over the balcony. Pros: very tasty food and lots of people having fun Cons: loud more

Good food better Ritas! 5/5/2009

I used to hate the food here. Not sure if there was a ownership change or a new chef/staff but my lunch Sat was delicious. Steak fajitas came out hot and tons of meat and veggies. Our waitress was very attentive and the bussers were constantlly clearing glasses and plates and re-filling our water...which you need for the STRONG ritas! I will go back again aand again. Pros: Yummy salsa/ Ritas!/ and Good People Watching more

Bad Bad Service 3/3/2006

waitresses/bar staff seemed ot only be paying attention to members of the opposite sex that were their own age. BAr maid kept our change without asking. Margaritas were good, but I've had better.. Okay--but they need ot send their staff to customer service training. Cons: Bad Service more

The food is far to spicey 3/29/2005

I had the enchiladas with Mole sauce (which from my experience is usually pretty mild) and it was so spicy I took two bites and was finished. The margaritas were fine, though, and this place is reasonably priced for the neighborhood it's in. But I would suggest going elsewhere. Pros: margaritas were good Cons: over spiced food more

Best on the rocks margaritas, no doubt! 3/11/2004

I moved away from Chicago a few years ago and still miss Blue Agave's margaritas! I've lived in Texas, traveled many time to Mexico, and tried other ""top rated"" establishments and nobody's compare! Drink up! more

Food and service not good 1/24/2004

The food has never lived up to much but it is true that they make a good margarita. That is about all I can say. It is walking distance from my house and I still stay away unless I have a week moment. more

Food Terrible! 10/17/2003

We ordered take out from this place and could not believe how AWFUL the food was. Unfortunately we only learned this after arriving home and eating the food. The entrees were full of spice but completely lacking in flavor. Do not order the Chicken Oaxaca! Can't really comment on the service. more

Be wary!! 9/5/2003

If you are looking for a nice outdoor seating place in the trendy upscale Gold Coast area try to avoid this place at all costs. I have eaten at Blue Agave 3 times in the past year and everytime the same thing...terrible service. We sit outside and you just wait and wait. I am an assertive person and at the same time always respectful of other people. It does no good at this place. Wait staff balks at you when you ask for service. I ordered chicken fingers and got a chimichanga. The waiter said another 20 minutes to get what I actually ordered. No apologies just more attitude. I'm sure many locals have had the same experience. For alternative outdoor seating go to Dublin's (next door), Blue Agave (across the street), or even on State at Cactus or Melvin B's where you will have a much better dining experience. Pros: margarita's, chicken fingers Cons: BAD SERVICE, MORE BAD SERVICE, & MORE BAD SERVICE more

blue agave 9/5/2003

There really is nothing better than having a margarita out on blue agave's porch with their great chips and salsa and a real good spicy chicken caesar salad. It's one of my absolute favorite things to do during the summer. If you haven't been to Blue Agave, go there. Sit out on the porch, order a margarita on the rocks, no salt. Order the chicken caesar salad and enjoy. You'll love it. Great part of town too! Lots of hotties walking on the street. Pros: margaritas, caesar dressing, outside patio Cons: no parking, service isn't great more

great margaritas 9/4/2003

Margaritas are authentic and the Chicken Tortilla Soup is tasty and a meal in its self....... Pros: Good Bartenders Cons: to far from Calif more
