If I could give an 0 I would. My tooth was broken on a bone in my food and the owner doesn't have time to call me because he's planning a trip to Mexico and they're refusing insurance info.

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...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!

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!!

One of our favorite places to gather with a big crowd. Food is always delicious and served quickly, and the staff is super friendly.

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.
