MEET THE OWNER
Our Owner, Mercedes Carranza, was born in Mexico and later moved to Mississippi, by way of California, bringing with him a lot of cooking ideas and flavors from the Pacific Coast of Mexico and California. He started putting into practice his passion for food and customer service in 1995.
“El Agave was opened in August of 2013 with the concept of providing a phenomenal dining experience to our customers along with a menu that provides delicious dishes.”
When it comes to Mexican food at El Agave, we cook daily, we use the freshest products to cook the food for your family. We serve homestyle authentic food but also have the traditional Tex- Mex flavor.
To our first-timers we recommend some of our favorite dishes such as our Creamy Jalapeno Enchiladas, Green Chili Pork Burrito (also known as the “Dirty Chick-Anne Burrito”), Diablo Shrimp, and the Barbacoa Burrito. As for appetizers, we recommend the number one favorite called El Agave Dip (four-layered dip).
Our atmosphere is family-oriented; we love to serve our community and our tourists because they have a lot of influence on the Gulf Coast economy. When dining at El Agave you help us sponsor schools and church activities. El Agave is the place where friends and family come together to enjoy a delicious meal.
We also have great margaritas along with 45 different tequilas. We have a variety of flavors and delicious refreshing margaritas.
Our staff welcomes you to dine in and enjoy some of our delicious dishes and keep in mind if it’s not on the menu let us know and we will personalize it for you.
