Best Mex in Town

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.

During one of my mini-biketours through RollaMO, I had the pleasure of meeting Maria y Saul, owners of El Maguey Restaurant, who invited me to a meal there. Unfortunately, it was the last third of the day, I was already fairly tired with another 15miles/24kms to go (admittedly, it was a pretty good go, on World-class, 5-star route 72) and... More

The restaurant is in a strip mall that's under renovation. The outside could have been more inviting and really the same can be said for the interior. It really needs an update and the overly bright colors muted a bit. We were not told about the drink specials before we ordered so the buy one get one free for a... More

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

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.

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!
