Blue Agave - Painting

Here's a few pictures from one of my favorite places: Blue Agave Southwest Grill in Yorba Linda. I've only been three times; each visit was a result of visiting my friends James and Lori out in Anaheim.

It's billed as a "Southwestern Grill," and not "Mexican," per se, but when their menu is filled with items such as tortilla soup, quesadillas, flautas, guacamole, taquitos, mole enchiladas, pozole soup, tostadas, etc., then I feel safe reviewing it here.

James ordered the Chicken Pozole Soup, unique in that it's the only pozole I know of served in tomatillo broth. Rounded out with chicken and hominy and served with sides of peppers, onions, cilantro, and cotija cheese I already know this is what I'm going to order the next time I go.

Having not had mole anywhere in a while I jumped on ordering the Arizona Chicken Mole Enchiladas: "Chicken rolled up in tortillas and served in our special mole sauce of chile anchos, tomatoes and plantain. A spicy and sweet favorite served with Texas beans and rice." This mole, rich, full-bodied and spicy, rivals that of Javier's, Taleo's, and Taco Rosa's.

When I got the Rice Pudding Tostada to eat in it was presented much better than it was when I got it about a year ago as a takeout item (see first review by clicking on the "blue agave" label below):

As we walked away James remarked, "I wonder if they have anything there that's not good."

Blue Agave Southwestern Grill maintains its solid four and a half Speedy Gonzales rating:

I still don't know if I don't like mole, or if I just don't like Taco Rosa's mole.

Try the mole at Javier's, then try it at Taleo, then try it at Blue Agave. Of course, Taleo has several different kinds of mole.

You had me at mole! Taco Rosa, Taleo, Gabbi's...me want to try this one to compare.

If you rearrange the letters in "elmo" you get "mole." I think "mole" is your destiny.

Blue Agave has the best Pozole, I love all the condiments they serve on the side. Hmmmmmmmmm.

So we have another vote for their pozole.
