Love El Maguey and their excellent food! The staff is super friendly and remembers you when you come back several times. I have never had a dish there which I did not enjoy, and the food is usually served within 5-10 minutes. El Maguey is probably the best and most authentic mexican food that I had so far, and I mostly leave the restaurant with a to-go box of food that I was unable to finish. They just serve you so much for the price!
I also love to go there with friends to have margaritas, which are delicious and include just the right amount of tequila. They serve different sizes from which you can choose depending on how thirsty you are, and they also have happy hours with even cheaper prices. Definitely the best margaritas in the area!!
Whenever I have friends visiting, I take them here, and I never heard any complaints about their food, drinks, or service. If you are on a budget, this is your place to go, as you get a ridiculous amount of homemade food and margarita for a cheap price. El Maguey is also in walking distance from Lindenwood University, perfect for students without a car or who want to have a drink without having to drive. Only bummer - they close around 10 p.m. on the weekends. Wish they were open longer!
