REVIEWS OF Taqueria El Maguey IN Indiana

ernesto Gonzales

This place is a hint or miss. The servers have a very negative deneanor and can care less if your dinning experience is an pleasant or enjoyable one. The Mexican food is mediore at best, but the tortillas are homemade and genuinely delicious. The decor is fundamentally Mexican nothing special. This hole in the wall Mexican restaurant has the potential to do well but it is in desperate need of a "staffing enama". The only reason we return to eat there is because in Indy we as Tex-Mexican do not know any better...for now. Let me be clear the food in not horrible, the service staff is, it is they who do the restaurant a disservice. Oh and the salsa has too much garlic and needs more chile. Beto is the only acceptable server, ask for him.

This place has some of the best Mexican food I have ever had! The burritos are huge and delicious. The tacos I have craved throughout my pregnancy. The service is cheerful and served with a smile. I have no complaints.

I would rate 1 star, but the food was good. The service wasn't great, but to their defence, the waiter was new and overwhelmed.

Recently 3 of my coworkers and I have ordered lunch for pick up from here. The first time I ordered the Caldo Tlalpe on. On the menu this soup reads- grilled chicken, steak and shrimp, cooked with onions, bell peppers, mushrooms and topped with cilantro. I received a bowl of broth with just shrimp in it. Literally just broth and shrimp. The second time I ordered the Fajitas Alambre. The menu reads- grilled chicken, steak, bacon, and (5) shrimp. Cooked with onions, tomatoes, and fresh jalapeños tooped with cheese dip. The fajitas I received included steak, bacon, onions, bell peppers, and cheese and was not accompanied with the guac, sour cream, lettuce, or pico de gallo. Food has always been good, just never complete. Language barriers do exsist, but patience can get you through the process.

Great Tacos with homemade tortillas... Suggestions are that they could work on being a little bit more friendly... Los Tacos de Tripa y asada están buenísimos y más porque son echos con tortillas echas a mano.... Sugerencias que el personal sean un poco más amable..

(Translated by Google) The service was very bad, I waited a lot for the food and when they finally took me it was cold and I had to eat with my fingers because I did not get a fork I asked for it several times by the way, the waitress very arrogant, terrible service. (Original) El servicio muy mal,espere mucho por la comida y cuando Al fin me la llevaron estaba fría y tuve que comer com los dedos por que ni tenedor me dieron asta lo pedí varias veces por cierto ,la mesera muy prepotente,pésimo servicio.

Fresh chips and salsa, the guacamole (mexi) and queso are good. We had tacos to eat, chicken steak, an carnitas, all of which had a great flavor. They only have beer, no margaritas. Also if you go on a saturday, it's karaoke night (This was posted 10 months ago, food and service are still great!)

Pretty good restaurant. Had chicken tacos and they tasted pretty well. I like the hot sauce and tortillas seem pretty fresh. Looks like they are affiliated with the other El Maguey around the corner.

Best burritos in the city. Bought a carne asada, carnitas, and chicken just so I could try them all at once and they were ALL fantastic. I know those are fighting' words here in IN, but I think it's true. Dorado style is a must. Bomb.

Paola Arana

Me gusta mucho su comida,pero la verdad el escandalo que tienen los fines de semana es insoportable!!! Hay gente que se cree que cantan bien y cantan HORRIBLE!!! por favor tengan un poco de respeto!!! No pongan la musica tan fuerte parace peor que un antro!!!!

To start, the server we had seemed very irritated by us being there. My wife ordered a dish called Mar y Tierra El Maguey and I ordered a shrimp burrito with no sour cream. The food arrived pretty quickly. However, my wife's dish, which contains shrimp, chicken, and steak that is cooked with vegetables fajita-style, arrived with steak that was not cooked and was sitting in a pool of blood. She promptly sent it back to be remade. My burrito arrived, but with sour cream. I usually don't complain, and since the sour cream is not an allergy only a dislike, I ate it. Honestly, the flavor was absolutely amazing. Probably the best burrito I have ever eaten. While I was eating, my wife's food re-arrived, and we discovered that instead of remaking the dish, they had simply slapped everything back on the grill and burned everything until it turned into jerky. She picked at the parts that weren't completely burnt, which wasn't much. We did both enjoy the horchata however. Shortly after we left, my joy at my "best burrito ever" was short lived because I made it less than 2 miles away before I had to pull over and vomit, and I spent the rest of the day vomiting and feeling sick. The moral of the story: I wouldn't recommend this place.

Mauro Castaneda

They have very good and delicious food Mexican food and margaritas beer Coronas everything's good I'm happy to at place

Delicious food and amazing service! Highly recommended!

Dave Roth

Excellent food! Crooks running the register!!! Great way to turn a great thing into a bad experience! For group if 6 we left a $20 cash tip at the table, the person at the register charged $15 extra dollars for my party of 3 and an extra $15 for the other party of 3. All of the meals totaled $70 for food and they wanted us to pay $50 in tips. We argued and they would not budge. I hope the Indiana Dept of Revenue audits them and their foul business practices

The best food ever

Fernando Arroyo

This place is bomb plus it has a big lot for all you 18 wheelers !

Payton Livingston

The best authentic Mexican I have found. I have seen live music there once which was super neat. The food is always amazing and fresh, though it can difficult to communicate certain requests to them. It is helpful to be able to speak/understand some basic Spanish. I am a vegetarian, so I opt for meat-free options (obviously) and those are few and far between on their menu. Their ‘normal’ style Chilaquiles came with no meat and it was SO GOOOOOOD!!! The egg was fried hard, not sunny side up, but it was still amazing. It was almost too spicy to eat, which I wasn’t expecting, but I loved it.

Theresa Rice

I had a nice time, but the salsa was too cold to have been served and tasted a little like refrigerator. They MUST remodel the bathroom and clean it. The restroom was very bad in every way. Ample proportions, good food, service could have been better, not expensive for what you get. Thank you.


Daphne Rodriguez

Although food is good. When a few of us went here for lunch. We were all charges double our meal. Meals should have been around 11 to 12 dollars cam up to 21to 22 dollar for most of us. When speaking to them about the amount. Said we were unable to get our money back. How is that possible? Don't double charge anyone that's not right. Then act like you don't know what we were saying. Don't go here at all. Illegal charging of food. Don't recommend at all. Thought this place was above this. Not right to double charge and not give people their money back.

Tomas Ricardo

Las fajitas son mis preferidas

Tried a tongue taco for the first time, LOVED it. Fajitas were great, as well as the homemade tortillas and guacamole. Would recommend!

My hubby and I eat here all the time... Get the chicken nachos! You'll never stop wanting them after that.. Customer service is good, there is a slight language barrier with certain staff. All in all I recommend for the portions u get for the money, and good taste.

Mayra Olmos

La comida puede ser muy buena , pero si el lugar parece un bar nocturno o una pulcata con gente borracha a medio día , cualquiera dudaría en entrar ahí y más si son familias que llevan a sus hijos . Que lugar tan pésimo!!! Es restaurante o bar nocturno??

Cool food. Staff over charged us for food. I may not be a native spanish speaker but I know enough.


Bad service, great food. I've been eating at this restaurant every weekend for the past 5 weeks. I always order the "steak and chicken" burrito and I'm usually satisfied with the food and service. The last time I was there, I ordered my usual and was told to sit while my food was being prepared. The Mexican waitress took the chips that were meant for me and gave them to two guys who literally just walked in, while I had been sitting for about 5 minutes. I mean, these guys were yet to call the waiter, they just got served my food. I didn't say anything as I wasn't about to cause problems. Then she walked paste to serve a mother and daughter behind me, I tried to ask her when my food would be ready but she kept mum and acted as if she heard nothing. I was surprised. Then she brought by burrito in a styrofoam plate and just dumped it on my table. I tried to explain to her that I ordered "for here" and not "to go", but she wouldn't even give me a chance as she just walked away. I waited for her to get my spoon and fork so I could explain again, but she dumped the cutlery and walked away, again. I got so pisses off I had to go to the counter so I could ask the other waiter why she was acting so rude. I asked him and his excuse was that she doesn't speak English. Now, the inability to speak English should not give you the audacity to be rude to customers. I mean, come on, you are in the service business. I went back to my seat only to hear her yell at him in Spanish. I quickly brought out my phone so I could translate whatever little I could get, turned out she understood me perfectly as she was telling her I didn't want plastic plates. I felt really bad that I had already paid, if not, I would have thrown the food away and walked out. I would never go back to that place.
