Being from Texas I have high standards for Mexican food. This place is great. The food is fresh, and cooked very well. Lots of great flavors, great menu, I hate to wait, but I am always glad that I do. If you have time they have a very unique Tequila bar with outstanding drinks, and tapas upstairs. Yet, another flavorful... More

A 3 hour wait is ridiculous so we were able to find a table on the rooftop patio and bar. Have the pomegranate marguerita (still dreaming of it), the chunky, delicious and fresh guacamole served with fresh lime and warm house made tortilla chips, or the steak chili. If you can get a seat at the restaurant ( Good Luck... More

Do not miss this place if you're a fan of true quality Mexican cuisine as you'll have to search hard even in Mexico to find its equivalent! Authentic in every way, this is a place worth lining up to get into (no reservations accepted); just be prepared for a 1-2 hour wait! Worth it though!

Having just visited our mate, local artist and celebrity, Kevin Fleming; we dropped in to Agave for a lunch. Kevin had said "Agave never disappoints" and he was certainly right. Kevin had warned us that we may be in for a long wait; but, we were ushered to a window seat within minutes of arriving. The wait service was attentive... More

This neat little tequila bar and Mexican restaurant is a MUST when in Lewes! The signature margarita is fresh and flavorful -- you can taste superior ingredients. And their custom cocktail menu is different and so gooood! The place was packed, but we sat at the cozy little bar and had cocktails and apps....the empenadas are wonderful. Top shelf service...

We have had nothing but great meals in rehoboth and decided to branch out. Food was outstanding as well as the drinks. Great food and ambiance.

This is Mexican with flair. Every dish we ate, every dish we saw come out of the kitchen was and looked delicious. The margaritas were outstanding. The service was warm and friendly. Having been to many, many Mexican restaurants, this is one of the best. Worth the wait!

Followed the TA reviews to Agave. Yes it is small and yes because it is so very good, there is often a wait. .With that in mind, we arrived for dinner on a Thursday night in August around 4:30 pm and we were seated right away. Just 20 minutes later, the wait began. Nice selection on the menu and although... More

I loved seeing pine nuts on my guacamole along with feta cheese. For purist it is probably a crime to mix mediterranean with Mexican ingredients and still call it Mexican but hey, we live in a post-modern cuisine world where everything is possible and Agave has a special license for doing it right and delicious. I loved the Vegetarian fajitas... More
