Los Agaves Grill, located at 5965 W. Broadway, McCordsville, serves delicious Mexican cuisine that Geist area residents have been devouring in droves.
Hugo Zavala, the Los Agaves owner, says he couldn’t be more delighted that the restaurant has been well received by Geist, Fortville, and McCordsville residents. He gets a lot of repeat customers.
“The restaurant has been open for two years now,” Zavala says. “But, my team and I actually purchased Los Agaves Grill a year ago on Oct. 3, 2017 to be exact.”
Zavala noted there are different reasons why Los Agaves has taken off.
“The city of McCordsville has enjoyed us in several ways,” Zavala says. “One, we are one of the few main restaurants in the town, and we run different promotions throughout the week. We have $1 Taco Tuesdays and Half Price Margarita Wednesday.”
The establishment also runs several events throughout the year, such as drink specials and a mechanical bull ride on Cinco de Mayo, and a tent party and DJ on Mexican Independence Day on Sept. 16.
Zavala says customer favorites include “La Parrillada (steak, chicken and chorizo on bed of rice covered in queso dip), Arroz Con Pollo, and our Carne Asada.”
Los Agaves also serves the popular Tacos De Carne Asada, with Grilled Angus steak in three soft corn tortillas with onions, cilantro and pico de Gallo. Tomatillo salsa and black beans are served on the side. Other favorites include its Fajitas; the Spicy Chicken and Shrimp Chipotle; and the Bandera Burrito, with sautéed chicken, steak, shrimp, chorizo, beans, onions, rice, lettuce, pico de Gallo, and guacamole all stuffed inside. The Bandera Burrito is topped with three sauces to represent the colors of the Mexican flag.
Zavala noted that Los Agaves has a very large menu with a distinctive variety of meal options. Several seafood choices include Camarones a la Diabla, a shrimp sautéed in butter, garlic, and their delicious diabla salsa, served with rice, lettuce, pico de Gallo, and avocado.
Several different combos are also available with enchiladas, tacos, tostadas, burritos, etc.
Los Agaves also has an extensive lunch menu and offers catering.
“My personal favorites (on the menu) have to be the Tacos Al Pastor (three soft corn tacos with strips of pork marinated in our special Chile ancho sauce, topped with onions, cilantro, and chunks of fresh pineapple) and Camarones Tarasco (a jumbo shrimp sautéed in butter and garlic, topped with our tabasco sauce),” Zavala says.
Zavala says that he and his family love McCordsville.
“I love the fact that it is small town, and how quiet it can be,” Zavala says. “I love all the people. Everyone is so nice, and we have Geist Reservoir so close to us. I have a beautiful wife and two amazing kids. My son, Luis, will soon be nine, and my daughter, Alejandrina, will be four in December.”
Zavala added that he is extremely grateful to his guests.
“Thank you to all of our loyal customers, and everyone that supports us,” Zavala says. “We have a great community! If you haven’t tried us, give us a try. You won’t be disappointed.”
