Delicious! A frequent hangout for locals. Large variety on the menu , big portions, quick and accommodating service. Of course, I have my favorites, but I have never heard complaints from friends on the entrees.

This restaurant has a very good look to the dinning area, and the food is very good and very large portions. I felt at home , it reminded me of places I ate at when I was young in San Diego. To me this is Comfort food, Great taste and great service, which makes for a happy dining experience.

El Maguey is a family favorite. They are friendly and the food is fast and delicious. If you are looking for flavorful fresh guacamole, these guys make it. Be sure to visit on your birthday for a fun festive treatment.

Whether you want to dine in or take home, the menu items are almost always consistently prepared quickly and use the same recipe regardless of the chef. Take out chips are not recommended 😉

I am not a Mex food purest, but everything was very good. The fajita combo and the shrimp quesadilla hit the spot. The $7.50 pitcher of margaritas certainly added to the enjoyment. Went there after dark and the location is hard to find because the outdoor lighting is poor. Also the windows all around the place need a good cleaning.... More

I eat at this restaurant fairly often, good Mexican food for being in a small Midwest town. The staff are mostly Mexican and the food is too. I asked the man at the register one day if they could make me chilaquiles someday. He said absolutely. He went on to explain to me that they are not the traditional Mexican... More
