This place has excellent customer service and has very affordable prices. I wouldn't say it's the best, but it's cheap & fast. You've got to get the cheese sauce!

This place is HUGE favorite of my husband and me. It's our after bowling spot on Saturday nights. The margaritas are on point every time and the food has yet to disappoint. The staff is very friendly and the chips and salsa are good too!!

The food is okay, not spectacular, the service is the same. My beans were served cold, but they quickly got me new ones. Nice staff, but isn't a place I will probably return to.

We ate at El Maguey tonight for the first time and it was okay. The chips were great, hot sauce was not good, tasted burnt or old but it is the peppers they use evidently. Tacos were good. My brother ordered the Fajitias ( peppers,...More
