This is a Mexican food buffet. The food is good but not much selection but all of it is hot. They do not serve any kind of alcohol. They do have TV's and the service is friendly.

You know your eating good food when the salad is phenomenal. Everything I ate there was so good. We will definitely be back when we are in town. This was our second time and it was just as good if not better than the first.

My wife and I went to El Magey for the first the first time and we were not disappointed! It has a small hometown vibe and a very friendly staff. We both got the taco salad shells and filled it with all sorts of options. There was a huge variety of mexican food and empty containers were quickly replaced. We... More

New items on the buffet are great. Great food and service as usual. Try the Chiles Rellenos, Pork Fajitas and Tamales. Flan is good, too.

This is our go to restaurant for our family. The food on the buffet is always hot and fresh. There are a variety of foods: tacos, quesadillas, chicken and pork fajitas, fish, shrimp, chimichangas and an excellent salad bar. They always serve fried plantains and sopapillas too. On weekends they sometimes serve more traditional Mexican foods like beef tongue. The... More

El Magey has a great buffet with lots of items and some great options for dessert. My favorites are the barbecued chicken, flautas, and the sopapillas. My wife loves the fajitas and orders them to go quite often.

My wife and I visited here for dinner. She told me about the buffet and how good it was. This was my first time eating here, and I was very skeptical about buffets, but I have always trusted her opinion, knowing she is a good cook and knows good food.. I tried many of the items and found nothing to... More

I know what you're thinking: all-you-can-eat Mexican sounds like a recipe for disaster. But trust me, this place is actually amazing! My girlfriend and I had to make an effort to start eating here less, because the food was so good we'd eat too much! This place is packed at lunch, but if you come to dinner the restaurant isn't...
