EatLafayette Dish of the Day: Agave's Fiesta burger

by Kari Walker

A great burger begins with chips and salsa.

When the debate over who has the best burger in town is on the table, you might scratch your head when someone says Agave Grill & Cantina. But this burger is a contender for the title.

Agave takes its Mexican flavors and infuses them in an American classic by presenting the Agave Fiesta burger. It's the 10-ounce Agave seasoned burger patty, grilled with mesquite barbecue sauce, melted cheese and finished with shredded lettuce, tomato, fresh avocado and crisp Applewood-smoked bacon on a Jalapeno bun.

This Dish of the Day is only $8.95 at lunch and perfect for sharing - or after hours over a pitcher of Margaritas (which are only $20 on Thirsty Thursday) as a fiesta for two. Stop by one of Agave's two locations and be on the lookout for a third opening in September in Parc Lafayette.
