Google search ID'd this place as the closest to where we were when we got hungry. We had no expectations and were totally surprised by the crowd. The line moved quickly but we weren't rushed once we were seated. The food is very good. It's likely this will be our go-to for Mexican food.

STL and surrounding has middle of the road Mexican food at best. Best thing on the menu is the queso. Same as all the other mexican eateries for main courses. Not expensive.

Whenever I desire Mexican food, I head to this specific location of El Maguey. Quick, accurate service and great food. I love the fajita taco salad and this location makes it better, in regards to ingredient ratio, than any other location! Highly recommended.

I love authentic Mexican food . This was pretty close ( I was told same owners as Dos for the locals ) the menu was the same the food was not. Well at least not the salsa. It tasted like they started to run out and they needed to add water to make it stretch it really tasted like nothing... More

The bride and I had another wonderful dinner here. She had the California burrito and really enjoyed, just not as much as their shrimp burrito. I had the enchilada especial and really enjoyed the cheese enchilada while the chicken and bean enchiladas were tasty. I was nor impressed with their beef enchilada. Will be back again

My very favorite Mexican Restaurant. Margaritas are awesome. If you leave Hungary, it's you're own fault because the portions are huge. Also have great lunch specials.

They serve good Mexican food. They bring out the warm corn chips and salsa, with the option of adding hotter sauce from the table. Food is good portions for the money and good flavor. Atmosphere is ok but too much like a chain. Good time and good service though.

I usually get their chimichangas, they are so good. I have tried them other places but they are not as good.
