The best

The best Shrimp Fajitas I've ever had. There were at least 15 shrimp in my order. The taste is what I get in Mexico when we visit. (The way the ingredients are sauteed) Much better than the way most American restaurants season this dish. The service was great and prompt. But it looks like they were... read more

My family loves going here. They have great food that is affordable on a tight family budget. Get a James Dip to share or eat one for a meal. If you like Mexican food you'll love it here. The new location looks great too. Yum!

For Rolla very good. Good anywhere else. If you have to eat in Rolla this is one of the best selections. Decent food, decently priced so you do not go away wishing you ate somewhere else.

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.
