|Agave in Dundee|
Agave is a Mexican restaurant located in the heart of Dundee at 5013 Underwood St. in Omaha, NE. The Dundee-Memorial Park neighborhood, where the restaurant resides, recently was named to the American Planning Association 2011 Great Places in America: Neighborhoods. Agave is tucked back off the street a little bit so there is some parking in front. However, most in our party found parking in the adjoining neighborhoods, where we got a glimpse of the old school architecture that helped earn Dundee its recent top ranking. At Agave, there is ample seating: an area outside and inside where there are three sitting areas. The bar area is near when you walk in. When you name a place after the plant from which Tequila is made you would expect Tequila, they claim to have over 100 different labels.
When you order from the Joe’s favorites section of the menu you receive complimentary chips and salsa. The salsa is red tomato-based and has a nice bite, but it is not hot enough for my taste. Something unique to Agave, they provide complimentary hot sauces at each table. They are jalapeno and habanero pepper-based sauces. The waitress showed us a trick to screw off the top of the decanters for better pouring. I preferred the habanero, which most at our table did, too. It had a nice heat and rich aftertaste flavor. For my main meal, I tried the smothered chicken burrito plate on this occasion. It was a large burrito that came with rice and beans...the portion size was big. I enjoyed the dish; the chicken was fresh (not out of a can) and plentiful, nice flavor, rice and beans were good.
