The family-operated Blue Agave Mexican Restaurant crafts an array of traditional and contemporary dishes from its menu in a laid-back atmosphere. Plates of mole poblano ($8.99) souse grilled chicken breast, rice, beans, and tortillas with spicy chocolate mole sauce diverted from Willy Wonka’s river. A cheese enchilada, guacamole, and jalapeño peppers flank a 10-ounce steak on plates of carne tampiqueña ($11.99). Cinnamon-scented sips of horchata ($2.49) usher bites of cheese or spinach enchiladas topped with spicy sour-cream sauce ($7.99) into grumbling stomachs. Schools of fish tacos teem with mahi-mahi, cabbage, salsa, and slices of radish and avocado ($8.99). Strings of lights illuminate Blue Agave’s orange walls, exposed-brick accents, and colorful booths adorned with scenes of villages and mountains crowned with resplendent suns and falling pieces of Cold War satellites.
