Pacific does not have a lot of weaknesses, but one of its weakenesses is definitely its ridiculous shortage of good Mexican restaurants. Luckily, El Agave satisfies that weakness. In fact, it excels in this field. El Agave is widely regarded as one of the best Mexican restaurants in the whole Franklin or St. Louis County areas. With their massive tamales, flowing chips & salsa, delicious, extensive authentic Mexican menus, and courteous and welcoming staff, you can rest assured that you will be pleased with the meal that you have at El Agave. The staff in particular is absolutely remarkable. They are extremely courteous, and they will always help you when you require it. And not to mention how talented they are. We swear, we saw one waitress carry twenty full plates at once. We have no idea how they are able to do it, but it certainly says tons about how fantastic this restaurant is! Seriously, if you are a fan of Mexican food and are tired of Pacific's lack of options in this field, then look no further than El Agave.
