We visit Agave frequently during our stays in Lewes. The food is consistent and always on point. We trust the menu so much that you can throw a dart at the menu, pick any item and know you are guaranteed a terrific meal. I highly recommend in order of our favorites...the hot mexican rockets, chorizo empanadas, filet mignon quesadilla, anything... More

I love this place. Pricing, amount of food, and wonderful margaritas! Hard to get into- only if they could take over the buttery!

The is a great Upscale mexican restaurant with Fresh food made to order and is always good. I have been to this restaurant at least 10 times in the 2 years we lived here and the food is always excellent. The soup sampler is out of this world with extra stars for their roasted corn soup. We have tried just... More

Go early or be prepared to wait but do not miss out on the delicious in-house Guacamole & Salsas while you consider the menu items. It doesn't matter what you order it is all great! The Black & Blue Quesadilla is highly recommended by my wife and she usually doesn't like blue cheese. Just close your eyes and take your... More

We sat outside on the roof deck bar and enjoyed made-to-order margaritas and guacamole. It was fresh and delicious, and the setting is lovely. We skipped the (very long) wait at the restaurant and opted for fresh air and appetizers, and never regretted our tasty decision.

Food and drinks are always GREAT!! I've tried everything on the menu and have not been disappointed. My favs are the shrimp burritos, ribs and cilantro soup! I go solo, with my husband, with family and friends and for take-out! It's never a bad time.

Agave is absolutely my favorite spot in my hometown of lewes Delaware. Of course it wasn't there when I lived there so I get to enjoy it on my visits home. Excellent everything. Wonderful margaritas, fajitas, burritos and quesadillas! Hard to choose what to order off a menu where everything is delicious. They don't take reservations so you have to... More

We had lunch at Agave and my biggest regret is that I couldn't eat my way through the menu! The fish tacos were amazing, as were stuffed jalapeño appetizers, and the margaritas were great. I watched various dishes go by and all looked wonderful. It's also a lovely place with great and pleasant service. The wait was long but well... More

Prepare yourself for a 1.5 hour wait and relax in the upstairs bar. Enjoy the red sangria and some delicious chips and salsa. Dinner was yummy and relatively inexpensive. The mango and avocado salad was the most amazing dinner salad ever. I absolutely love this place. If I'm in Lewes, I'm eating here. Can't wait to go back.
