Amazing place

We felt so lucky to eat there. We had to wait but it was totally worth it. Place is clean and nicely designed. Service was fantastic and the food was tasty, fresh and worth the extra $$$. Can't wait Togo back and try more dishes. Wished more and more resturants will adopt the slick modern clean... read more

We go to Agave off-season because no guacamole or margarita is worth a three-hour wait. The refusal to accept reservations suggests that management does not value my time, so why enable that?

Dined at this restaurant on 8/17/15. It is a very popular location. The evening before, I attempted to eat there and was told it was a 2 1/2 wait. Good place for all. Portion sizes are pretty big so bring along an appetite. Our dishes were very tasty!

Rumor has it this is THE new place to go in Lewes, De for Mexican fare. I have been told folks wait forever for an Agave meal. Hmm. I'm not sure why. My daughter and I wandered into Agave on a hot August afternoon mostly because we were stuck in the odd place between lunch and dinner and many places... More

Great, fresh Mexican food and awesome margaritas. Limes squeezed at the time of the order. Recommend the Rockets or the Fundido from the app menu. Yum.

I'm originally from Southern California, so I know good Mexican food. Agave has exceptional modern Mexican food and the best Margaritas around. The wait can be very long in the summer. If you go upstairs to their very nice lounge while you wait, the time will pass quickly. You can order drinks and appetizers in the lounge. My favorite food... More

Where do I begin.... this is the best Mexican Restaurant on this side of the Mississippi. Yes, they don't take reservations and Yes, you'll have to wait, but just chill, the wait is TOTALLY worth it!

I've said in another review that I break down Mexican restaurants down to the best and all the rest. By the rest i mean basic Mexican done well or done poorly. I consider only a few places that do Mexican special. Agave is one of those places. They are not like 98% of the places that take the same 5... More

Best Mexican cuisine around! Agave is a local and tourists favorite. The only negative I can think of is the long wait no matter when you decide to go since reservations are not an option. Best margaritas, best homemade Sangria. The food is far superior to any other Mexican restaurants. My personal favorite is the blue cheese and steak quesadilla,... More

Definitely recommend Agave to Lewes visitors. The food is delicious (worth the wait) and the margaritas are absolutely wonderful! The staff is friendly. For just drinks, either bar area is great but the upstairs bar area offers relaxed seating. Our most recent visit was on August 7. Our group of 6 enjoyed appetizers, pitcher of margaritas and beer in the... More
