You have to try the El Toriado. Beef, chicken, shrimp, and BACON! All atop a bed of authentic Mexican rice (just like my grandmother used to make) and smothered in a light queso cream. I had it the first time I ate at El Maguey and it's the only thing I ever order now. The Margarita's are generous and priced... More

This place has excellent customer service and has very affordable prices. I wouldn't say it's the best, but it's cheap & fast. You've got to get the cheese sauce!

Didn't feel like cooking Saturday evening and on impulse decided to go to El Maguey. My friendly,energetic server seemed to appreciate (or at least was amused by) my high school Spanish. I ordered the Pollo Loco, which consisted of a large boneless chicken breast, rice, beans, tortillas and guacamole salad, preceded by the customary (good) chips & salsa. I'm not... More

This place is HUGE favorite of my husband and me. It's our after bowling spot on Saturday nights. The margaritas are on point every time and the food has yet to disappoint. The staff is very friendly and the chips and salsa are good too!!

The food is okay, not spectacular, the service is the same. My beans were served cold, but they quickly got me new ones. Nice staff, but isn't a place I will probably return to.

We ate at El Maguey tonight for the first time and it was okay. The chips were great, hot sauce was not good, tasted burnt or old but it is the peppers they use evidently. Tacos were good. My brother ordered the Fajitias ( peppers, chicken, shrimp, steak, onions, mushrooms) and they were awesome, lots of food. My husband ordered... More
