Smack dab in the heart of Cajun Country, the Happiest City In America has its own unique blend of culture. This blend of culture shines through in Agave’s cuisine. Agave is a fusion of culinary traditions that now seems like a natural, but was a bold departure when Balbeisi Brothers introduced it over a decade ago to an unsuspecting and now grateful dining public – melding the rich flavors of traditional Mexican food with the Cajun spices and seafood native to Lafayette and Louisiana.
While diners will find the beloved tacos, fajitas and enchiladas on the menu, there are also distinctive favorites such as glazed tilapia on Spanish rice topped with crabmeat cream sauce or a platter of nachos garnished with fried rabbit and chipotle mayo – evidence that Agave Cantina does not claim to be solely traditional Mexican fare.
Agave is also true to its name, featuring handmade margaritas mixed with a selection of 40 of the finest agave Tequilas in the world. The atmosphere is always fun, perfect for families or a welcome escape for the team after work.
If you call Lafayette home, or are visiting our beloved home, Agave is right around the corner. Our Downtown Location located on 200 East Vermilion Street in Lafayette, Louisiana, is where it all began! We like to say it’s where the Border meets the Bayou™!
Like every one of our locations, dining outside is a hallmark of the Downtown Agave experience. Treat your senses to one of our ice-cold De La Hoya Margaritas, while relaxing under a canopy of twinkling lights, while listening to the groove of Lafayette’s best live music.
Whether it’s your birthday, girl’s night out, a gathering of friends after work, or just a hankering for a truly satisfying lunch experience, nothing beats the Party on our Patio!
