The agave plant, which is traditionally grown in Mexico, produces a nectar that can become sweeter than honey with proper aging and cultivation. It's appropriate that Agave Grill takes its name from this established Mexican crop, since the restaurant's primary focus is on the cultural authenticity of its dishes.

Modern hanging lights cast shadows on vibrant burgundy, yellow, and robin's egg blue walls, and large front windows fill the dining room with natural light that illuminates plates mounded with chimichangas, sauce-slathered enchiladas, and burritos stuffed with al pastor or tender carnitas. In addition to the tried-and-true cuisine, Agave Grill also pays homage to its spiritual homeland by displaying photographs of Latin American landscapes and demanding that each guest conjugate the Spanish verb for "swallow" after each bite.:m]]

Since Mustard's Restaurant opened in 1971, the eatery has won acclaim in barbecue contests and sauce-athons across the country. Chicken, beef, and pork cook slowly over smoldering apple and cherry woods that infuse the meats with delicate smoky flavor. House condiments bearing titles such as Mean Mustard or The Sauce enhance baby back ribs and char-broiled burgers. Diners can even divvy up slices of New York?style thin crust pizzas, topped with barbecue sauce and chicken or covered with customizable fixings and trained to lie flat instead of folding in half. Mustard's also caters events with platters of bite-size snacks or buffet-style barbecue fare.
