We found this place a few years ago. Love the food and the margaritas. Always try to stop by when we are in the area.

We waited 2 hours as there is no booking for a meal here! Not sure why although our friends told us it was the best in the area. i would say give other restaurants a go! The food was average for its type

We aren't fans of Mexican food but everyone we spoke to raved about this place. It certainly is popular. Luckily, we came early and did not have to wait long for a table. It's a lively place so don't expect it to be quiet or romantic. The menu was interesting. My husband had the specialty which was peppers stuffed with... More

One of the best restaurants to visit along the little town of Lewes, Delaware. The atmosphere is absolutely amazing and the food is perfect. The best part is there house margaritas one just isn't enough. Only downfall is the wait can get a tad bit lengthy at times. If your in the area deffintly check this place out!!

Our daughter has dined at Agave several times and she recommended the three of us have lunch there today. We were not disappointed! We entered at noon when they opened and, of course, had no problem being seated. We shared a starter of Shrimp Guacamole which was fantastic. My wife ordered the Steak Burrito which had a wonderful taste in... More

After an hour-long wait on a rainy day, we were given a table by the kitchen and bathroom (and constant waiter and patron traffic). If we weren't with hungry kids we might have opted for another restaurant but everyone was quite hungry so we stayed. The guacamole was bland but the chips were crisp. Jalapeno corn bread was moist, with... More

I had lunch at Agave on the 4th of July...it was a cool and overcast day so I was expecting every restaurant to be packed. I wasn't surprised to have to wait an hour for a table and there is plenty to do in Lewes while you wait. I don't always have the patience for this and definitely would not... More

Came here with some locals who prepared us for the wait. We were flexible and split our party into 2 tables of 3 and they made sure we sat next to each other. I think we had more fun with this configuration because we hopped tables and were surprised with each table's courses. We only had to wait 15 minutes,... More
