Have been here a few times. Won't go back. Used a "buy one get one free up to $6" coupon from the Entertainment Book and gave the server the coupon when we ordered. After we finished our dinner and it was time for the bill, we were told

We were regular customers at this location for years. The food is good. The atmosphere is authentic. The prices are good. The nachos and fajitas are great. We have not been back in almost a year because of a waiter that was so rude to us, 2 times in a row. We have always tipped 20%, even at lunch and even if the service was not up to par. On these two occassions, the waiter had a very aloof attitude and would not give us extra salsa for our chips or meal without trying to charge us 1.50 extra. Also - my husbands nachos were made very poorly - I guess in an attempt to slight him for questioning the charge. This was very unprofessional and made us uncomfortable as to what they would do to our food. This had never happened in the many years we dined there. So - I was dissappointed to find that when we complained to the "manager" who probably was not really a manager at all - the entire staff turned on us. They were speaking Spanish around us and making rude remarks. I guess they are not aware that Americans like me are fluent in Spanish. Oops!
Needless to say - they will NEVER get our business again.

Pros: Good nachos and fajitas, served hot

Cons: poor management / no management

This is mxican food at its best in St. Louis. The food is always hot, the servers are always friendly. The prices are great. We have never had a bad experience there. We usually go during slow hours and on Friday nights it can be hard to find parking, but it is well worth it!

Cons: Parking can be hard sometimes

Considering there are El Magueys just about everywhere in St. Louis, if you are in the mood for Mexican and a good deal there is probably one close by. The chips and salsa are awesome and as much as you want. Just don't fill up on the chips or you will miss out on the main course. Everything tastes good and the presentation is always appetizing. The staff is helpful and do speak English. And if you are up for it try a couple of Margaritas with your meal!

El Maguey is becoming a St. Louis landmark. It offers great Mexican food, fast, hot and with friendly service. In a town that has needed decent Mexican food for years, we are happy to have El Maguey available to us now. Sometimes there is a wait, but it's rarely long and you can take that time to enjoy a margarita before being seated!

The taco salad is a great meal at a great price.

My husband is from San Antonio and knows all about good mexican food and this restaurant serves it up. He always swears he's back home when he eats here. The food is really good and the prices you can't really beat. This is a very reasonable place to eat and the service is always great. For authentic mexican food this is the place to go to eat.

El Maguey is our hands down favorite mexican food restaurant in Saint Louis. Their food is excellent and a great value. The fajitas for one is plenty for 2 for lunch, or if you want to take home leftovers. Even if you stuff yourself with fajitas, there's still leftovers. Sometimes service is a bit slow, but they are incredibly busy so we usually plan to make a night of it, and the food is worth the wait. My only complaint is that the smoking and non smoking sections switch sides depending on the time of day. So, there isn't truly a non smoking section, but it's not a serious enough problem to keep us from going there.

El Maguey's food is authentic mexican food not just tacos and nachos. They have a great selection and everything is good. This is the kind of food they serve in texas. The service is alway good and never a long wait to be seated. The food comes out fast and is always hot. We like to go here at least one a month.

we went to dinner there on a Friday evening. We only had to wait about 10 minutes. We had very good service, and our food was very good. The dinner was reasonable and there was a lot to choose from on the menu. Overall - it was an enjoyable dining experience.

The food was good, but not great, and not the best I ever had. The cheese quesadilla had the most horrible cheese, it was like white American or Velveeta! I was hoping for Monterey, or another Mexican favorite. It was not TOO expensive, but for the quality, the prices should come down! Service was mediocre, the waitress had to be summoned too much. Skip the sopapillas and the Cheese quesadillas. And also the taquitos were a bit overcooked. The salsa and chips are grreat!

Soulmate and I have eaten there since we first arrived over two years ago. I was raised in San Antonio and have eaten fajitas from all over. We drive from O'Fallon IL just to eat there. They have, without a doubt, THE BEST FAJITAS we've ever tasted due to adding churizo sausage bits to the mix! Usually only order Especial for one and share due to the large portion they serve, however if your really hungry and want to take some home get the Especial for two.
Have also ordered other items on their menu and have been very pleased with everything except the Margaritas. They don't seem to use enough tequila.
Other than that OK, but remember DON'T TELL EVERYBODY (or you'll be waiting even longer for a table)!

Good food. Ask for Ramon on HWY K. I love the lunch specials!!! #1 Speedy Gonzalez is good! Food is delivered in no time at all. Saul was my favorite server until he left. Otherwise, a great franchise to dine in.

El Maguey is fine mexican dining. It is fairly unknown, when compared to reaturants like Chevy's, Chi-Chi's, Casa Giardo, and Taco Bell, but it blows all these other restuarnts out of the water. All the food I've eaten there has been excellant, and the employees friendly. It is moderatly priced but the value you good is exceptional. It is a bargin. If you're looking for good mexican food, look no further.

It's the kind of place you have to go to every time you crave Mexican. The service is great, the food, hot and delicious. I love the salsa....sometimes the chips are a little stale or burnt but I can forgive that when the real food comes out!!

I often eat at El Maguey, there are i think about 4 or so in the st louis area (including st charles), Its not your Chili's, or Casa galliardo, or fluffed up expensive tex-mex places. Its pretty close to authentic Mexican food, its not a mexican palce were you see no immigrants in sight, most of the guys who work there speak very little english, so theyre cooking what they used to in mexico. The prices are good, the food is good, service is usually qucik.

Without a doubt the best in Mexican food. Tacos, enchiladas, and tostadas are all great. THe chips and salsa are great as well. The lunch specials are a hell of a deal.
