Another Mexican Restaurant

I love Mexican food. Therefore, I take every opportunity I can to eat at a different restaurant. This time we chose Agave Azul Cocina Mexicana on 5855 Winter Garden Vineland Road #100 in Windermere. We had eaten at Agave Azul Cocina Mexicana in Orlando several times before and were always content. The last time could have easily been about 7 years ago. So why not go for it again?

What can I say about Agave Azul Cocina Mexicana?

There’s little information about Agave Azul Cocina Mexicana. They first opened in 1998 and currently have four locations: Orlando, Winter Park, Winter Springs, and Windermere. It is a family-owned and operated restaurant serving traditional food with a modern twist.

Unexpected Decor

I love the atmosphere, which is always vibrant. The decor is not like the typical Mexican restaurant. It is mostly a modern decor with hints of traditional Mexican features. Agave Azul Cocina Mexicana also has a full bar for social gatherings, and outdoor dining, too.

What to Expect?

As with many other Mexican restaurants, you get a serving of chips and salsa to start off with. Their chips are crisp, fresh, warm, and not salty or greasy. We ordered Tacos Al Pastor dinner that included 3 corn tortillas, pineapple adobo pork, onions, and cilantro with a side of Mexican rice, refried beans, and salsa. All that for only $15.50! And let me tell you, the portions are generous.

It has a Full Bar Too!

Agave Azul Cocina Mexicana has a variety of specialty drinks for all tastes. Colorful, creative, and tasty margaritas and cocktails complement their foods well. They also have beers and wines – whatever you like, you’ll find in their full bar.

Oh, What a Sweet Ending

For dessert, nothing like their churros. Freshly warm churros covered in cinnamon sugar and a side of warm caramel to dip the churros in – delicious. Of course, nothing like the ones we had in Spain.

A Superb Service Indeed

I will admit the service was great. , but it was around 1:00 p.m. Could the time have made a difference? Friendly and knowledgeable, engaging staff tending to our needs in a timely manner. To all those Mexican food lovers, don’t forget to visit one of their four Agave Azul Cocina Mexican Restaurants in the Central Florida area.

My writing journey began as a way to cope with grief. I realized I enjoyed writing and began a blog, Debbie’s Reflection (https://debbiesreflection.com). I also enjoy traveling. Therefore, as a traveler, I began another blog, Traveler Wows (https://travelerwows.com), in which I share tips on places, landmarks, and reviews on airlines, hotels, and restaurants. Thank you for joining me on my writing journey.
