One Of The Best If Not The Best Restaurant In Lewes-Rehoboth Beach

We heard of this restaurant through word of mouth as to how good it is. We were further told that if we weren't there by four pm, a long wait for a table would follow. So we decided to try it for a weekday lunch. A full 45 minute wait. But it was worth it. It is a Mexican Food... read more

Overview: 1. Fajitas for two were okay. Steak wasn't a filet cut (they said it was) but it was good. Chicken was over spiced and fajita shells were out of a bag. Veggies were amazing. 2. Fish tacos reported as the best they ever had. I thought they were average. 3. Ribs reported as terrible. They were different and I... More

The guacamole is good, margarita's fine, but all other food is so - so. It is not worth the wait - we have tried this restaurant 3 times and have found all 3 visits to offer the same. There will not be a 4th visit

The food at Agave Mexican Grill and Tequila Bar is worth the wait!! This was my second time dinning at this restaurant. The strawberry margaritas are amazing! The super nachos appetizers can feed a family of six! The puffy fish tocos are my favorite! The service was really good during my visit. I would eat here again.

This is a MUST STOP if you are in Lewes. Authentic Mexican - the BEST we have ever had. We had the Shrimp burrito which was insanely great and the popular fish tacos which were amazing. We do not drink alcohol any longer but they have an awesome drink menu and judging from the packed bar and tables around us... More

We have eaten here about 5 times and always impressed! Sangria is worth the trip alone! Tomatillo salsa is a must! Great guac and creative too!

Met some friends for lunch in Lewes, Delaware, they had all eaten at Agave before but it was my first time. We shared guacamole and chips before our lunches arrived, some of the best Guacamole I have ever had, enjoy a delicious Pomegranate Margarita and a wonderful bowl of Gazpacho. The service was perfect, my only complaint was from my... More

Took a bike ride up to Lewes and decided to eat at Agave. Food was ok. Service was ok. We may try again, but not sure.

An excellent Mexican restaurant--the long wait for seating almost year-round is testimony to the good food and drink that one can enjoy at Agave!
