Our Story


Agave Mexican Restaurant has been the lounge, tequila bar, and Mexican cuisine of choice for locals and visitors of the Lewes, Delaware community since 2008. We started with 30 seats, and extended two years later with an addition of 28 seats. Then in 2017, we expanded for the second time to add a total of 105 seats.

This is all possible because of the tremendous support from our loyal customers and community, in addition to the support and help from our great service by courteous staff over the years.

With entrées and appetizers perfect for sharing, and an incredible variety of tequila, margaritas and seasonal hand-crafted cocktails, there’s something for everyone. All of our food is made fresh in house and served to you by a professional and friendly staff.

Love from our Customers

  • One of the best places to eat in Lewes! Yes there is usually a wait, don't fret, just put your name down! Take this opportunity to stroll around the downtown shops, it will be worth the wait!

  • We have been customers since Agave opened, even before the expansion. This is one of our all-time favorite restaurants. The service is exceptional and the food... oh, my, incredible.

  • While there may occasionally be a wait, there is no better place to go than Agave. During the off season I find myself at my desk daydreaming about how great the margaritas are. Since I've tried agave's margarita no others seem to compare. My husband and I tried the Fajitas for Two, which may seem a little pricy at $49 but we were both more than filled and they exceeded our expectations. The steak was cooked perfectly. I have also tried the Bleu Cheese and Steak Quesadilla and it is amazing as well. We usually take a few containers of their queso to go, so addicting. Wish they would open up a few other locations!

  • Best margaritas ! Fresh lime and agave, no triple sec garbage ! The chicken mole is yummy, the fish tacos a must and we love the chopped salad with grilled chicken.  You MUST try the guacamole sampler...never seen this anywhere before, such a great idea to add non typical ingredients to the guacamole !

  • Just stumbled into this place in Lewes. Michael, our bartender, was very friendly and gave us the best margaritas ever! Fabulous drink and food menu. Ask for the vegan menu if you are vegan; basically tells you what you can eat off the regular menu and how to order it. We really enjoyed our food, drink and the service here. Will definitely be back.

  • Even with the wait times, we keep coming back and so does the rest of Lewes! Because the food really is delicious and the atmosphere is great. Definitely recommend Agave.

  • For any business, being extremely busy is an obvious compliment from the customers - and also a signal to the nearby restaurants to up their game. I fully expect that Agave's success will lead to a higher-quality and more diverse restaurant scene in Lewes.

  • Such a consistently great experience. This has to be one of the best restaurants in the area. Even if you're not a huge fan of Mexican food, this place rocks. It is that good and may change your perspective on this type of cuisine. Appetizers, salads, entrees, go-withs, and desserts are delicious. The handcrafted cocktails with fresh juices are such a hit as well!

  • The decor is super cute, they spent a lot of time and money making it look amazing. We got guac and chips, excellent, and drinks. Waitress was friendly and helpful, food was excellent. With two kids and three vegetarians it is not easy to find place that makes us all happy but Agave hit the nail on the head! Will be back.

    Amanda P. YELP
  • The best restaurant ever! Everything is consistent and always fresh. Friendly help to assist you throughout your dining experience. Love the expansion and new decor. Whenever we are they we feel at home. Excellent place to try. It's always worth the wait!
