Fresh, Authentic & Amazing

I love this place. I'm here a few times a month & I love it for the fresh ingredients, the creative guacamole and the drinks are fresh squeezed fruit (my FAVORITE part). Sometimes there is a long wait & sometimes there is not a wait. It all depends on when you stop in! Experience: The staff is... read more

The wait can range from 30 minutes to 3 hours, but they take your phone number so you can stroll the shops in the downtown seaside streets of the first city in the first state! Take the time to enjoy the quaint surroundings of this historic village by visiting the museum, on Saturdays they offer a fabulous farmer's market, and... More

First and formost, the reason for a 1 star review is nothing related to the food. The food was incredible, from the appetizers to the dessert. This restaurant deserves 5 stars for quality of food. Ingrirdients were fresh and flavors were awesome. Undoubtedly, the best Mexican food around. The reason for this poor rating had everything to do with service.... More

Arrived at Agave on a Saturday afternoon around 2:30. We thought it would be less crowded in between lunch and dinner but still ended up with a 30 minute wait. It was well worth it and would go back again in a heartbeat. Food and service were excellent!

OK, we love the margaritas and I especially LOVE the jalapeno rockets (jalapeno wrapped in bacon w/Cheese) but it is so small and crowded that you must love eating very close to your next table. Pricey but worth it.. MUST get there early or you will have a two hour wait. They need to expand for the demand.. just sayin...

This is an absolute must if you are visiting Lewes! I have heard from locals that the wait is ridiculous during peak seasons, but we were able to get in at the bar upon arrival during our early spring trip. The margaritas were delicious, their tequila options are incredible, and the food was amazing! We had the shrimp and garlic... More

Over rated. Food is just above chain and not worth the long wait. Tamale dry and food just average. Better Mexican in Rehoboth Beach.

I am not a huge fan of Mexican food, but I can certainty taste high caliber food! Agave is Mexican with a creative flair, ( think guacamole with goat cheese) The pomegranate margarita was out of this world. They also have some local craft beers,wine, and other drinks. My husband and I tried the guacamole sampler and the fajitas for... More

can't say enough good things about this place. Yes, you have to wait and they don't take reservations but if you between 2-3 pm you can probably waltz right in. If you have to wait, then wait, you won't regret it.

This my absolutely my most favorite Mexican restaurant. The ambience is wonderful and lively and the food prepared by authentic chefs is amazing. They have an extensive tequila selection and do not skimp on the alcohol. They also make a variety of guacomoles to order. My only criticism the place is small and frequently there is a waiting but worth... More
