The Blue Agave

by gastronomicbypass

Location1 W Maple St

In one word – Churros

Food – In comparison to the other Mexican restaurants (outside of the Pilsen neighborhood–those places are in a league of their own), BA really doesn’t hold up. Yet, I continue to frequent the place. It’s really because of those churros.

Drink – They have a house margarita, which is decent, in addition to fruit flavored margaritas. They also have a decent list of Mexican beers.

Service – The staff is friendly here, another reason why I keep coming back.

Scene – Because the restaurant is off of the Rush/Division strip, it is usually pretty packed with groups of friends.

Occasion – This place is a refuge from the bar scene on Division Street. It’s still lively, but the crowd isn’t as obnoxious as the bars two blocks north.

Cost – I usually spend about $20 at BA.

If you like…, try – Uncle Julio’s Hacienda, Zapatista’s, Lalo’s
