If all you do is come here to eat the salsa, it will be worth it! It is regularly made in house and is just terrific with the extra thin chips that accompany it. The food is very good, and not very greasy, and it's consistently hot. Love the tacos al carbon.

Long standing restaurant, good food at fair price, not always properly staffed with wait staff. But, get ready to smell cigarette smoke or stale cigarette smoke wherever you sit.

We used to eat at El Maguey every few months just to see if the food and service had gotten any better. Now there are too many other places in Elgin to even try this place again. Service was slow... Food was decent at best. There are many better choices in Elgin.

Good TexMex and friendly, if sometimes slow service. Good prices on respectable margaritas, especially during happy hour. Good friendly folks.

Try the Mexican Martini's, they are great!!! I am also regular for breakfast at this cafe. The service I receive is excellent. The juevos rancheros and the breakfast tacos are terrific.

Excellent full bar. Cheese & beef enchiladas both great. Mom loves fajitas. Haven't found anything I don't like especially Mexican martini.

Had a great time; a few cold ones, and enjoyed Cloe (Bar Keep) she was entertaining and made a few great suggestions. We had the Fajita Nachos, chips & Salsa, and we had a great time.

You won't go wrong here; they have the best chips and salsa, breakfast is fabulous. I get the kids plate and ask for over easy with ranchero sauce, it's just right. They have a wonderful lunch, too.
