Following the move to 11639 Parkside Drive, Dos Agaves Mexican Grill manager Carlos Cobian and his family said, “We’re open.”

The restaurant, formerly located along Kingston Pike next to Kroger Market Place for the past 10 years as Azul Tequila Mexican Grill, opened Tuesday, Sept. 29, with a new name and location.

Dos Agaves is a family-run restaurant, headed by Cobian; his niece, Maria Cobian; her father, Alfredo Ramos; and cousin, Jovenal Ayala, all of Farragut.

While Carlos has 13 years experience, the head cook has more than 20 years experience in the restaurant business.

Since one of the previous owners chose not to join them in the move, Carlos said they decided to rebrand the business.

“And we wanted a newer building,” Maria said. “The other building was old.

“The menu’s almost the same, but we have added new things and have taken off things that weren’t really selling,” she added. “We also changed to Pepsi products.”

Street tacos and charro beans are among the new items on the menu. The family also added menudo, an aromatic soup; huarache, a large corn tortilla; and horchata, a cold white rice beverage flavored with cinnamon and sugar.

Meanwhile, Dos Agaves’ fajitas are still a favorite, as well as its cheese dips.

“Customers say we have the best burritos,” Maria said.

Customers also will find a full array of chimichangas, enchiladas, quesadillas, tacos, tamars, chile rellenos, grilled beef and chicken specialtiesand a lot more.

“Everything is made fresh,” Maria said, noting with COVID restrictions, “We are taking precautions and cleaning every day.”

Dos Agaves Mexican Grill is open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., Mondays through Thursdays; from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., Fridays and Saturdays; and from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Sundays.
