Good Mex

We used to eat here 12 years ago when it first opened. It was still as good as we remembered. We were lucky to hit it during $3 Margarita Happy Hour. Decent Margaritas and they didn't skimp on the Tequila. The food was as good as we remembered and the service was excellent.

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.

I ordered a burrito and enchilada combination plate. It was bland. Very, very tasteless. The burrito was just unseasoned hamburger meat wrapped in a flour tortilla. The enchilada was the same, except a corn tortilla. Neither item had cheese, onions, or anything else mixed in. The salsa that came with the chips was also bland. If a Mexican restaurant can't...

My daughter and I ate here on a road trip. We were craving Mexican, and have eaten at several other St. Louis area El Magueys with good results. So, we drove an extra 45 minutes past many other restaurants to get here. It was 4:30pm, so we were seated immediately, by some guy who casually tossed menus on a table... More

Good food at a reasonable price. Not the friendliest folks working there but the food makes up for there attitude. Service could be better, never did get refill on drinks server busy on his phone.

The food is decent and the atmosphere is okay, too, but you can hit or miss with the level of service and friendliness of the staff. I rate the chain average because of the level of service. You can get warm and friendly service at times and not so nice service at other times.

El Maguey is super cheap & super fast. It is definitely a noisy place as there are ALWAYS large groups there for dinner.
