Agave Roja's modern Mexican fare is celebrating its fifth year as a tasty part of the Corolla restaurant scene. A little more upscale than the traditional Mexican restaurant but still relaxed and casual, Agave Roja is a place to sit down and savor a meal. The interior is contemporary, with tile, woodwork and colorful reds and oranges that lend a lively style. Enjoy Mexican fare prepared with skill, and sample some new twists on Latino cooking. The menu includes creative starters, soups, salads, seafood dishes (think fish tacos, snapper Veracruz), tacos, enchiladas, steak, chicken, kids' meals and so much more. Wait until you see their variations on guacamole. Agave Roja has a full bar featuring more than 50 varietals of tequila, fresh-made margaritas, mojitos, sangria, signature cocktails and beer. Agave Roja serves lunch and dinner seven days a week in season. They're always having some sort of extra fun here too, with events that celebrate holidays or painting classes.
