Our Server wasn't friendly. A smile would definitely help! Food was very bland. Everything tasted the same. Tamale was full of masa, very little meat. My daughter enjoyed the Refried beans though. Bathroom was so dirty and smells. El Maguey used to be good. It's been years since we've tried them. This location has gone downhill.

The service her is always on point- no matter how busy they are. At times, you may have a bit of a wait for a table, otherwise you are typically sat right away. The food is always delicious and the drinks are always amazing! Love it.?

Good food, the meal was served promptly. Several options for sizes of margaritas from 16 to 42 ounces. Chips were thin an crispy and salsa tasty.

The food is good and there is plenty of seating if you have a large group. Food comes quickly and prices are very reasonable.

This very colorful, fun atmosphere Mexican restaurant serves up very large portions. The food is excellent. First up is freshly tried chips and salsa. Large variety of menu items. If your wanting a late afternoon cocktail. You will love their margaritas. The wait staff are very friendly and service oriented. Great place for lunch or dinner.

Went there after a very long drive. The staff had a great sense of humor and was joking with us from the minute we sat down. Much needed after a long day of driving. The food was great and we had a pitcher of margaritas that were wonderful. Can't say enough about the great service!

Not the worst Mexican food I've ever had, but nowhere near the best. Very Americanized and prefrozen grocery store taste. Nothing here appeared to be homemade or fresh. No cilantro or lime in any of the dishes which is my definition of good Mexican.
