The food is fairly average, portion size is good, atmosphere is family oriented and the Dos Equis on tap is perfect!

Great place to stop in for a good Mexican Meal. Large group of friends showed for lunch and were treated like family. Good Price, Good Food, Good Service.

Completely messed up our order and was rude when we asked to fix it or for more chips. Never going there again since there are two other nice mexican restaurants in Rolla.

I like the El Magueys back home and this location did not disappoint either. It is always an enjoyable meal.

Granted there aren't many good food joints here but we are staying in rolla tonight and wanted a non-chain place to eat. Eat here! Margheritas are good but go for the top shelf....food is unusually big portions too!

The food at El Maguey is about as Mexican as it gets north of the border. Food is presented in an attractive and friendly manner and the staff is ready to please. Prices are right and the atmosphere is laid back.

We have eaten in a lot of Mexican restaurants, but this is unlike all others. The food is quite bland and the restaurant could use a good cleaning.
