fantastic place

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

It can be hard to get in because reservations are not accepted. Around 5 for dinner is a good time. Lunch is also very good. The flan dessert is outstanding. Being in Downtown Lewes one may have to allow time to get a parking space in the summer. Bring your quarters for the meters!

This place has the best Margaritas ever. They are made from fresh squeezed limes and great booze. The food is fresh and authentic. You will have to wait to be seated but it is well worth it.

They have the best food I have ever had. We go at least twice per year (I am from PA) I wish they would take reservations because the town closes down pretty early so there isn't much to do while you wait.

Read several lowly reviews of waiting too long for seating... That's the adventure of Agave! I eat here several times a year and never have I had a bad meal. Yes it's a popular small place, yes you'll wait and yes if you do wait you will enjoy a great meal!

Love this restaurant! I especially love the steak with blue cheese fajita with sautéed onions and a special sauce to put on it which is yummy! This is a real party for your taste buds! The guacamole sampler is a must! You select 3 from the different kinds they have and you will not be disappointed with any of them!... More

I love this restaurant...the fajitas are excellent and the margaritas can't be beat! They just need to expand because they lose customers because of the long wait. I haven't been back because we can never get in.

The food, service and drinks are definitely worth a visit! Their drinks, all fresh and desserts deserve a special mention. In order to get in at a reasonable time I would recommend putting your name in around 4:30 or 5 if it is a busier evening. We waited for 2 hours on a very busy night (night before thanksgiving!) but... More
