I was in Rolla for a conference and craved Mexican food at lunch. This was my first time in Rolla so it was a bit difficult to figure out where to eat as reviews were all over the place and some places looked suspect. We found El Maguey through yelp and decided to give it a try. When we walked... More

This is an average Mexican dining place, but has really fun karaoke nights on Thursdays and good margaritas

Definitely will return. New decor, and beautiful art paintings on walls. It's definately giving the restaurant a good atmosphere.

My family loves going here. They have great food that is affordable on a tight family budget. Get a James Dip to share or eat one for a meal. If you like Mexican food you'll love it here. The new location looks great too. Yum!

The best Shrimp Fajitas I've ever had. There were at least 15 shrimp in my order. The taste is what I get in Mexico when we visit. (The way the ingredients are sauteed) Much better than the way most American restaurants season this dish. The service was great and prompt. But it looks like they were in the middle of... More

For Rolla very good. Good anywhere else. If you have to eat in Rolla this is one of the best selections. Decent food, decently priced so you do not go away wishing you ate somewhere else.

During one of my mini-biketours through RollaMO, I had the pleasure of meeting Maria y Saul, owners of El Maguey Restaurant, who invited me to a meal there. Unfortunately, it was the last third of the day, I was already fairly tired with another 15miles/24kms to go (admittedly, it was a pretty good go, on World-class, 5-star route 72) and... More

The restaurant is in a strip mall that's under renovation. The outside could have been more inviting and really the same can be said for the interior. It really needs an update and the overly bright colors muted a bit. We were not told about the drink specials before we ordered so the buy one get one free for a... More
