Copyright © 2010 Four Green Fields DBA Agave Restaurant

Southwestern style had its moment in the ’90s, but interest in the cuisine—a mishmash of South American and New Mexican culinary traditions—has largely waned. Stuccoed, arch-ceilinged Mojave does not signal a revival. Our lackluster meal included soggy chipotle chicken wings with a blue-cheese sauce so thin it couldn’t coat a celery stalk, and Santa Fe shepherd’s pie—macaroni in a Velveeta-like sheath of Monterey Jack over ground beef. Steak fajitas were better but don’t alone merit the trip to Astoria. Nothing to see here, folks: Better mosey on through.

I'm not a frequent Queens patron, but when I am, I always request a trip to Mojave. From delicious guacamole to a good brunch deal, this is a sweet respite for visitors from other boroughs. Always comfortable, friendly service, and a reasonably priced menu. Plus: close to the train station to get you back to your home borough quickly...

Good service , really good steak tacos, well in general food is good, and really good margarita
