I have been here three times and only visited Lewes on two occasions. First time ordered food to go and loved it. That took no time at all. We could not get in at all that evening. Their restaurant is small and they do really outstanding service and delicious Mexican food. You need to prepare for the place being full.... More

Get the roasted corn, the guacamole trio, and a margarita or two! Other than that, you're on your own, but it's a great menu! We recently went on a rainy Thursday, and we got right in. By the time we left, they were lined up in the lobby! Our wait staff were nice! Some of the menu items are creative... More

Agava Mexican Restaurant - Lewes, Delaware - 9/24/16. (6 adults - 5 children) Our waiter was so helpful. The adults started the evening with Margaritas ... they were great! The Guacamole Sampler, Chips & Salsa, Fajitas for Two, and Surf and Turf Burritos were delicious! We can't wait to go back. Thanks for a GREAT evening.

The food is good, but not great and the servers think way too highly of themselves to work hard. When we are there, we arrived very early for dinner. We are locals; we know the drill. We were still told that there was a three hour wait. Okay. We walked around downtown Lewes and had some drinks and appetizers. When... More

Had lunch here today. We got in a line about thirty deep at 11:40. I thought this is bad until I found out it was not even open yet! This place is popular. We didn't make it in on the first shift but put our names on the list and were called thirty minutes later. Nice place, airy and clean... More

Even tho we had to wait for an hour for our table, I thought it was worth it! The Margarita was delicious & the food was yummy!! I had the Chicken Cheese Quesedilla, my husband got the Steak Tacos, & we shared the chicken stuffed Jalapino appetizer. Everything was excellent. One great thing about Delaware is that there's no sales... More

Some of the best Margaritas anywhere and the steak/blue cheese quesadilla is so tasty. Love their salsa too!

I wish I could give this restaurant more stars but my husband and I just returned from a weekend in Lewes and we could not get into Agave. It is a shame as I love Mexican food and we at there last year around this time for lunch. We went around 8:00 on Friday 9/16 and were told the wait... More

Food is above average but menu is uninspired, Service and wait time is abysmal, Lacks ambience of a true Mexican restaurant. Whatever popularity it has seems to stem from fact it is the only Mexican restaurant around. Beer offerings are pretty good but specialty drinks lack punch.

I live in Lewes and as a local I can guarantee that is one of the best restaurants in the area. The food is always delicious and the prices are very reasonable. The only downside is the long wait time, however it is totally worth it!
