CRAZY CROWDED

OK, we love the margaritas and I especially LOVE the jalapeno rockets (jalapeno wrapped in bacon w/Cheese) but it is so small and crowded that you must love eating very close to your next table. Pricey but worth it.. MUST get there early or you will have a two hour wait. They need to expand for the... read more

This is an absolute must if you are visiting Lewes! I have heard from locals that the wait is ridiculous during peak seasons, but we were able to get in at the bar upon arrival during our early spring trip. The margaritas were delicious, their tequila options are incredible, and the food was amazing! We had the shrimp and garlic... More

Over rated. Food is just above chain and not worth the long wait. Tamale dry and food just average. Better Mexican in Rehoboth Beach.

I am not a huge fan of Mexican food, but I can certainty taste high caliber food! Agave is Mexican with a creative flair, ( think guacamole with goat cheese) The pomegranate margarita was out of this world. They also have some local craft beers,wine, and other drinks. My husband and I tried the guacamole sampler and the fajitas for... More

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!
