We are going to teach you a few words in Spanish, which you will want to use when you visit AGAVE, a trendy Mexican grill and Tequila bar in downtown Lewes, DE. Let us try, “delicioso,” which means “delicious.” Ok, now one last phrase – “más por favor,” which translates “more please!” On their Facebook page, AGAVE has over 6,000 likes, if that means anything to you. For a small Latin American restaurant, they pack a big punch and draw quite a crowd. When you walk in, there is a small lounge area. The ambiance is hip with wooden floors, dim lighting and a modern sensibility.
You may have guessed by now that you will definitely enjoy the delicious food at AGAVE, and that it will probably leave you longing for more. It is a very popular restaurant so they do not accept reservations. With that in mind, it is still worth a visit. One customer was quite frank about the wait and enthusiastic about the food when he said, “If you can stomach the 1-2 hour wait, you will be in Mexican food heaven!” They are open Monday through Thursday from 12-9pm, Friday and Saturday from 12-10pm and Sundays from 3-9pm. Depending on which day you visit, the wait can vary. Some suggest getting there early to avoid a monstrous wait, like 4:30pm.
Now let’s get down to the real reason you want to visit AGAVE. The proof is in the pudding, or in this case, the tacos. Menu items range from $11 to $30. Unfortunately AGAVE does not have an online website or menu, but if you were to Google their name, you would see plenty of dishes exposed by happy customers in their reviews. Dishes that were mentioned the most (we did the work for you) were: Chicken Mole, Cobb Chicken Salad, Jalapeno/Cheese Cornbread, Blue-cheese Quesadillas, Super Nachos, Chicken Burritos, Garlic pepper shrimp with mango salsa and Mahi Mahi Fish Tacos to name a few. Creative yet authentic dishes are on every page of the menu. And we can’t forget one of the biggest draws of this Grill and Bar – the Tequila! There are over 70 varieties to pick from.
