Cheap Mexican? Hole in the Wall Stripmall? Bellevue? I'm There

  • This location is shown only to members

I've been aware of El Agavero for a year and had read conflicting reviews before finally going a couple of weeks ago. What I found was typical-to-pretty-good fare. Three of us dined and thoroughly enjoyed everything in front of us.

There's not a lot of information about El Agavero to be found just yet. They've been open for just a couple of years, and don't seem to be very marketing-minded. 

It's a very simple place with tasty food at affordable prices. If you're unfamiliar with the area, the easiest way to find it is to turn in at Staples on Highway 70S, get in the right lane and turn right at the stop sign. Continue on and before you drive uphill to the next part of the plaza, turn left into the parking lot. The restaurant is about 3 doors from the end.

You can check out their menu here - http://mexicanfoodbellevue.com/

Urban Spoon reviews are very positive (the early negative I saw was updated, and to the good!) and look mostly legit - http://www.urbanspoon.com/r/47/510537/restaurant/Bellevue/El-Agavero-Nashville

    I heard you had a "full house". Awesome!!!

    Yeah, I'm not sure I like this new font either. Great for my aging eyes though.

      Service was good too, considering the size of the group.

      Wish I could. Promised my best friend who just moved away some quality phone time (75 minutes). If we didn't talk tonight, it was sketchy when we could.

      Plus, the dog needed to be taken care of and Antioch is a long ways away from Bellevue when I leave her at 7am.

      Glad it was a great Meetup. You rock!

    Looking forward to it. I love this little restaurant, and I love that we are doing something in Bellevue!

      Sorry, I had the flu last week and I am still not 100%. After a day of work, all I want to do is go to bed. I am a wimp.

    I can't wait!

      Same here! It's going to be a fun evening. With lots of cheese :)

    I'm going to have to cancel this one. I have calls for work that I need to stat home for. It's January , and we have the big show at the end of the month.

    1 · January 11, 2014

  • Mary

    I just fixed the map - hopefully - to reflect the actual location. It's a few doors down, on the right, from Bed, Bath & Beyond

    January 10, 2014

  • Mary

    Opened up 4 spaces. Welcome!

    I didn't RSVP for this bit it added me, strange

    January 2, 2014

    • Mary

      I changed the event so there would be a waiting list (instead of no waiting list)

      January 3, 2014

    • Mary

      and you were moved up automatically.

      January 3, 2014

  • Rose L.

    Awesome! My calendar is clear for the 13th. Sorry for the email confusion. Thought someone had "hacked" our Meetup! Thank you for scheduling!

    December 28, 2013

    • Rose L.

      No, you host. I will see what the wait list looks like and may adjust my RSVP since it's so far from work and we have lots of members in that area.

      1 · December 28, 2013

    • Michelle T.

      I'm in! Just down the street.. Looking forward to meeting everyone!

      1 · January 1, 2014

  • Rose L.

    Giving up my spot for a wait lister. Bellevue is a haul for me on a work night. If the list drops down, I may re-add myself.

    December 30, 2013

    • Mary

      I hope we'll see you with us!

      1 · January 1, 2014

  • Diane G.

    Rose, I always see that restaurant as I go to stores in that shopping Center, but always wondered if it was good. Where I work used to be in that shopping center but we moved to Brentwood, but the sign is still there, lol

    2 · December 29, 2013

    • Rose L.

      Apparently, it is good. See previous comments. Several members have been here and commented. I hope I can make it.

      December 30, 2013

    Comment from a previous email (via Katie). I didn't want to approve the message since it would email the entire group but still wanted to share her message about this place:

    I've eaten at El Agavera...it's better than some/most. It's in the same strip mall as Bed Bath & Beyond in Bellevue. The best (and most authentic) Mexican food I've found in Nashville can be had at Fogatas, 5560 Nolensville Pike, Nashville (37211). They are just north of Old Hickory Blvd., right next to the Lowe's store.

    • Mary

      I've been to Fogatas and yes, it is quite good.

      Will see what my February looks like. But that won't be for a bit.

      1 · December 30, 2013

    I eat there a bit. It is pretty good as Mexican goes.

    Well I was added as a host and automagically accepted for this. So I'm going. WOOHOO.

    • Mary

      Michael you're the second person to tell me that. You're not on the 'going' list, though. I'm not sure what's up.
