While visiting New Paltz, NY , I wanted to dine at a Mexican sit down establishment and learned there is a new place only a few months old named Los Agaves. This is a family owned and run business who takes great pride with all the wonderful Mexican food they offer.
The rooms are divided up by bar area with tables and a separate room for dining. Festive lights, sombreros and murals fill the walls with a fun quirky feel.The waiters are very attentive and friendly while offering a lot of good suggestions.
We started with chicken quesadillas and a mixed appetizer sampler called botana ocateca which included guacamole, chicken burrito pieces, beef chimichanga bites, tostatoes and other nice choices.This was so tasty we finished it all.There were also tortilla chips and fresh salsa on the table.
For the main entree I ordered shrimp with chipotle cream sauce. Another in my party picked chicken and beef fajitas and a chicken with red mole sauce and cheese was also chosen.
The last interesting item ordered was a combination plate of ground beef taco, shredded beef burrito, and a chicken chimichanga. All main dishes come with refried beans and Mexican rice.We all felt the food tasted truly authentic and fresh with very generous portions at reasonable prices.
For dessert we shared the thre leches (three milk) cake and the chimichanga dulce with sweet cream and banana inside. We really enjoyed them both.The tres leches cake was so good I ordered a piece to take home.!
While visiting or staying near New Paltz don’t miss this wonderful new restaurant with great service, delicious food and a fun atmosphere. I plan on coming back and trying new picks.
