“great Mexican food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2012

we have eaten there dozens of times and every time find it to be well prepared and always flavorful; favorites are nachoes de fajitas, carne asada; would love it if they would improve their chips and salsa

“Our favorite place in the area!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 December 2011

We eat here often. Always good! Fast service and they get to know regular customers. Bring us HOT sauce before we ask because they know we will be asking for it!

“Our favorite in Walkertown”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2011

Not that there are a lot of alternatives, but we'd love El Maguey regardless. Restaurant is owned owned and operated by Mexican folks, and the food isn't Americanized Mexican. Well, to be fair, some of that is available for those who want to be safe. But the kitchen is talented enough to offer lots of other choices. On our most recent visit, my wife got her favorite pollo fundido, and I got camarones a la diabla. Both were well prepared, properly spicy, and delicious. The staff is friendly, from the management to the servers. If you find yourself in Walkertown with a craving for Mexican food, El Maguey is an excellent choice.
