A very good Mexican place. We love to come here with family usually for lunch, sometimes dinner. I do like the old place better, but the new one if fine.

The Chicken Bandito is must try! So delicious! Great Salsa and Chips. Also check out the JUMBO margarita if you're in the mood. The only down fall, the waiter was not very attentive to our drinks and we really could have used another drink

The place was almost packed at lunch on a Saturday but our food came out rather quickly hot and fresh. The have lunch specials everyday on their menu. The salsa was ok nothing special but the beef fajitas were very good and plentiful.

Since they opened the new restaurant we have been in twice. Food great service adequate. But today it appears they forgot about the service all together. A 20 minute wait still no wait staff. Sorry. Nice people but hey can't figure out the business.

I was in Rolla for a conference and craved Mexican food at lunch. This was my first time in Rolla so it was a bit difficult to figure out where to eat as reviews were all over the place and some places looked suspect. We found El Maguey through yelp and decided to give it a try. When we walked... More

This is an average Mexican dining place, but has really fun karaoke nights on Thursdays and good margaritas

Definitely will return. New decor, and beautiful art paintings on walls. It's definately giving the restaurant a good atmosphere.

My family loves going here. They have great food that is affordable on a tight family budget. Get a James Dip to share or eat one for a meal. If you like Mexican food you'll love it here. The new location looks great too. Yum!

The best Shrimp Fajitas I've ever had. There were at least 15 shrimp in my order. The taste is what I get in Mexico when we visit. (The way the ingredients are sauteed) Much better than the way most American restaurants season this dish. The service was great and prompt. But it looks like they were in the middle of... More
