Taste Agave puts tequila and tacos on center stage

Share Article

At Taste Agave, the name of the game is tacos and tequila.

However, don’t expect to find just your run-of-the-mill tacos or the fearful gives-me-a-headache tequila brands.

That’s not what Taste Agave is about.

Instead, you’ll find 20 styles of 100% blue agave tequila, margaritas, and craft tequila cocktails that pair with creative taco offerings and other items in a rustic yet upscale atmosphere. It’s perfect for your next dinner date or night out with the gang.

All about the agave

Taste Agave

If you’re looking for Bourbon, gin, vodka, or any other spirit, you won’t spot it here.

Taste Agave is tequila-focused, as evident by their list of 20 varieties of tequila ranging from bright, floral blancos to rich and complex añejos.

Their wall of tequila has recognizable brands like Jose Cuervo as well as more intriguing offerings like the full line of Casamigos (a company fave) and the rare Don Julio Real, one of the few extra-añjeos you will find in the market.

Each tequila is available neat or on the rocks.

It wouldn’t be a tequila bar without a host of margaritas. Taste Agave offers 15 flavors of margaritas like Traditional, Lavender, Mango, Blood Orange, and Cucumber Jalapeno, among others.

You can enjoy one or get a flight of four to try out a few at once.

The tequila doesn’t stop with margs, though.

Taste Agave also crafted a full menu of 15 tequila cocktails that include traditional tequila drinks like Palomas (and four flavored varieties) to tequila takes on classic drinks like their New Fashioned (an Old Fashioned with tequila) or a Juan Collins.

Gourmet tacos and more

While tequila gets the glory at Taste Agave, the food is not to be overlooked.

Chef Matt Frye curated a menu of 13 gourmet tacos, appetizers, and desserts that span from the traditional to the deliciously fun and creative.

After picking your margarita or cocktail, your next move should be the Chip and Dip Flight. No more worrying about whether you want guac, salsa, or queso because you can have it all.

The only thing you’ll need to worry about is which type of each you want. Taste Agave’s Chip and Dip Flight features three styles of house guac, queso, and salsa. Mix and match to make it your dream dip flight.

Bonus: You can enjoy their Chip and Dip Flight and Margaritas for just $4 each from 4-7 p.m., every Wednesday through Friday.

Other starters include Quesadillas, Sriracha Sweet Chili Brussel Sprouts, Nachos, and a Shaved Brussel Sprouts Salad.

Once your starter order is in, shift your focus to the tacos. With 13 types, it could be hard to make that final decision.

Each taco offering comes with two packed tacos and a side of rice. You’ll see familiar styles with a twist like the Pork Al Pastor with mango habanero salsa or Fried White Fish with spicy jicama slaw.

Try something new like their Cuban Taco with honey ham, pulled pork, and spicy pickles or the Korean Short Rib that’s piled high with spicy pickled carrots, charred scallion crema, and fried enoki mushrooms.

They even offer several plant-based options like their Tempeh Chorizo and Wild Mushroom Fajita.

Plus, all tacos can be made gluten-free by choosing a corn tortilla instead of flour.

A dessert menu with Sopillas, deep-fried pastry tossed in cinnamon-sugar, Paletas, popsicles made with fresh fruit and spices, or a Mexican Drinking Chocolate Sandwich, an ice cream cookie sandwich, help round out the menu.
