I have traveled extensively throughout the U.S. and half a dozen times to Mexico. El Maguey/O'fallon is the best hands down. The meat quality is consistantly good, tender beef tips (chimichanga) , skirt steak (carne asada tacos &

The staff are idiots. We ordered cheese dip and waited about 10 minutes for it, when we got it it was cold and lumpy, then the waiter took our order and messed up everybody's drinks. We waited about 35 minutes for our food to come out and the guy had not even put my order in. I left. Ridiculous. I have known about 3 people who have found bones in their chicken. BEWARE!

I was introduced to El Maguey by my girlfriend about a year and a half ago and absolutely love it. We've eaten at numerous locations, and other than a few sub-par meals here and there the food is absolutely awesome. My personal favorite is the Chicken Quesadilla Fajita - the creamy cheese is delicious and the vegetables are cooked exactly as I like them. The chicken is also seasoned very well.

I'm also a huge fan of their chips and salsa. For those looking for a "chunky" salsa it may not be for you, but I prefer the thinner varieties and to me it has just the right amount of heat to it.

I suppose it would be nice if the rice had a little more "kick" but I do think it's quite good as-is.

Another reviewer's comment about the seating at the O'Fallon, MO location is true; we've always been fortunate to be seated at a booth but we dread getting stuck at one of the tables in the middle of the dining room, and the ones at the front are very close to the doors and the checkout counter. The smoking section is completely separate from the non-smoking section though, which is a huge added bonus. The restaurant is always packed with a wide range of diners, from couples like my girlfriend and me to families with young children.

The service is generally very good, although we have found the St. Charles location to be a little friendlier (that's not to say the O'Fallon servers are unfriendly or rude, but there is a difference). The food is ready amazingly fast, which is good as I tend to stuff myself with chips and salsa until it arrives.

I'm not a huge expert on Mexican food, and I have a fairly limited pallet for Mexican foods that I like, but El Maguey has made me try new things which, to me, says a lot about the quality of food they serve.

Pros: Great food, fast service, well separated smoking area

Cons: O'Fallon location has crowded table seating.

Friendly staff, good prices, fairly authentic, and not too crazy! Good value, and the chicken soup (don't remember the "real" name of the dish) is served in a huge bowl with tortialls and is really good! Always lots of chips with great salsa.

So many people like El Maguey, but we find it flat, with no real flavor kick like true Mexican food has. This is the McDonalds of Mexican cooking, and if you like bland, you'll like this

Pros: Fast

Cons: Tasteless, like eating food without seasoning

Excellent value, generous portions, good quality, and delivered fast. Great value for the money, family of 4 can eat for $25, and we always have leftovers to take home!

Love the burritos and chimichangas at El Maguey. Service is usually very good here. Chips as salsa not as good as Chevy's in my opinion, but the entree's are better.

This location on Highway K does not offer much in the way of private seating. If you get seated near the entrance on a cold day, prepare for a freezing draft whenever people come in.
