Agave Mexican Grill and Tequila Bar

Map137 Second St.
Lewes, DE 19958
  • Mexican


At Agave, the tequila flows like the Rio Grande. More than 70 varieties of distilled agave adorn the shelves, which find their way into glasses for sipping, tasting flights and margaritas. Try it when you’re ready to move on from licking salt off your hand. Before opening the place, owner Chris McKeown toured distilleries in Mexico, learning what gives añejo tequila its oaky finish, as well as some secrets to stellar Mexican cuisine. Think chiles en nogada and puffy, crispy fish tacos. Diminutive though it is, Agave has become a Lewes hotspot. The good: It’s hoppin’. The bad: You might have to wait for a seat.
