Los Agaves in Ashburn

I wanted to give any CHers in this area of NoVa a heads up about this new Mexican Restaurant. I went there a few weeks ago with my family who were visiting from Texas. It's pretty decent.

The menu has some Tex-Mex favorites as well as Mex-Mex options.

I had chicken enfrijoladas, which were pretty good. My husband had tacos de carne asada and the meat was nicely done and smokey.

Sister had sopa de mariscos which was loaded with seafood and most importantly, had a good, rich broth.

My only complaint is that we ordered elotes and the menu described them as they should be served but they came to the table as steamed or boiled frozen corn on the cob halves, not grilled/roasted. And it appeared that they used crumbled queso fresco on them instead of cotija as it said on the menu. Being from Texas where we have eloteros in our grocery store parking lots, this was disappointing to my family.

I'd like to explore their menu further before I make any more pronouncements about the place. I'd recommend it based on my family's meal there, though. For one thing, there are no Mex-Mex options for at least an hour away towards Maryland, DC, or Manassas, so it'll be awesome to have a place to grab a bowl of menudo or have some sopes just a few minutes away whenever I fancy. (Though they need to improve those elotes!)
