I have eaten here a few times for lunch. The service is always good and the food plentiful. The seats leave a great deal to be desired because almost all of the booths have cracked benches and need repair. I wouldn't recommend this for a professional business lunch but it's good for friends and family. Overall, it's a reasonably priced... More

Good Mexican Food for very reasonably prices. Would recommend the Nachos or any of the combination platters

We have passed this multiple times while going to petsmart and am so glad we stopped in! We sat out on the patio with our dogs; service was great and the food was excellent!

My wife and I got the "Fajita Mix" (steak, chicken, shrimp) fajitas for 2, $23.25. Very good and the portion was huge. Even after eating 3 packed tortillas each, we brought home over 2lbs. of fajitas not counting all the sides and tortillas.

I probably go here once every couple of weeks & every time I introduce my friends, they start adding it into their (sometimes) weekly restaurant visits. The staff is phenomenal, the chips are SO good & the arroz con pollo is top notch. This is definitely the best El Maguey in St. Louis (there are a lot of them) &... More

This is the best food @ cheap prices. I have eaten here for many years , still the best place for real Mexican flavor !. Nothing like the bigger restaurant chains. These people keep it real . Best kept secret in St. Louis.........." Don't tell anyone ".👍

El Maguey's is the most original Hispanic food anywhere. Their menu is full of original menu's and very enjoyable. You can have a cerveza (beer) or other drink to compliment your meal. Open for lunch and dinner. I like the "tamale special", if available. You will too. All Hispanic staff, who also speak good English.

I have come here during the week and on weekends and service is always friendly and fast. The food always excellent. I like the poblano (stuffed peppers) dish.

El Maguey's has good food, and a comfortable atmosphere. I come here often, and I usually see lots of families here, as well as couples and singles. The combination plates will allow you to sample a wide variety of dishes. My husband and I enjoyed fajitas, chili poblanos, burritos, and enchiladas. The bill was very affordable. We ate our fill,...
