South Charleston Edition: Los Agaves
For as long as I've lived in Charleston, I've heard folks refer to "Mexican Shoney's," which is just a Mexican restaurant that used to be a Shoney's location.
Los Agaves is located in South Charleston, with additional locations in Dunbar and Parkersburg.
The restaurant has a small outdoor patio, which was perfect for the first 75 degree day of the year.
The menu is large and has a few unique options, which I always get excited about when visiting a new place.
But first, strawberry frozen margaritas and chips & salsa.
Add in a side of queso, please.
For my entree, I went with the "Burrito Jimador," because the menu said it's one of the most popular dishes! It is a giant burrito stuffed with grilled steak, chicken, bell peppers, onions, tomatoes, rice, beans, lettuce, sour cream, guacamole, and topped with nacho cheese and burrito sauce. One. Big. Burrito.
For dessert, we split a fried ice cream that was coated in corn flakes!
Have you been? What's the best menu item?
