“Great salsa! Large portions!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2012

This place is great if you are in the mood for Mexican food dishes. The atmosphere is lacking, the staff are generally fairly friendly, and the food is good. The menu is huge.....so many choices! It is truly Tex-Mex......not a whole lot of authentic dishes, but, overall worth a visit.

“Casual. Good food. Great place for families.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2011

I've eaten at El Maguey's often with co-workers, friends, or family. It's a casual atmosphere so I wouldn't suggest it for a fancy date. If you want some good, reasonably priced food and a great place to just go out with friends or take the whole family (kids too) this would be a fabulous choice!

“The best place to eat in Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2011

I eat here at lease once a week.The service is excellent. They check on you many times during your meal. They give you free chips and salsa with your meal. The food is the same all the time. Great! They have quick service as well. So if you need to be in and out in 30 minutes it can be done. Mexician at it's best! Great Fried Ice Cream too!

“Pretty good if you don't mind that it's a hole in the wall”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2011

We don't have a whole ton of ethnic food here on the Virginia Eastern Shore, but El Maguey is pretty darn good. Fairly cheap too, but you feel more as if in you're in a takeout shack than a restaurant. If you don't mind this and just want to focus on the eating, you'll enjoy it. Convenient if you're passing through, as it's right on Route 13.

Enjoyed the food and good prices. A friend had the soup and it looked great.
