Friendly atmosphere. Nice hot fresh chips for salsa. Waitress made guacamole tableside! Food was good. Service was good. I had a simple taco platter which was excellent.

I will admit I miss the fantastic decor of the old El Maguey, as the restaurant had to slightly relocate due to changes in the shopping center, but we love the food and isn't that what dining out is all about? We have never had a bad dish and we eat there a lot. Have we had dishes hotter than expected...just be warned about the Diablo Burrito. It's named "diablo" for a purpose! The portions are exceptionally generous, happy hour prices are low, and service is always good. The salsa is very tasty, but they make an extra special hot green sauce that you have to ask for. For a very small charge you get enough to take some home as this is not a sauce you want to dump on your food without testing it first...unless, that is, your insides are made of asbestos. We go back over and over to El Maguey because we have never been disappointed, and I don't think you will be, either.

Went there on 04/14/2017 for dinner with a friend. The Mexican waiter saw that we were Asians and showed us a really bad attitude. He took our orders and left, and didn't bother coming back ever again (the food was served by another waiter). He never came back even once throughout the meal to check if we needed anything. Half way through the meal our classes were both empty, and nobody at the restaurant bothered checking to see if we would like to have more water added. So I sucked a lot of air through the straw and chewed it repeatedly just for fun :) Having a guitar player at the restaurant will not make it more classy when your waiter doesn't care about your customers. I really regret that I still tipped him when we checked out. Should have given him NOTHING. Would never go there ever again.

Mexica, good food, friendly staff, yummy coices, budget friendly. But, we just get everything we like and take home what we don't eat.
