Diner Reviews
  • " casual relaxing place away from the crowdy nights in the LES. Meal plus a drink, dessert and tip was under $30. Will definitely be back."

  • "Title says it all. Blah margies, blah guacamole, but AMAZING moles. And a very nice waiter."

  • "El Maguey has the feel of an authentic family run restaurant. The food is delicious, fresh and home made tasting. Good drinks and they can handle a crowd with ease. The bathrooms may be a little TOO authentic, but nothing to worry about! I look forward to returning."

  • "I was scrambling day of for a group of 12 and El Maguey y la Tuna was able to take us at 8pm on a Saturday so I was very thankful for that. The wait staff was attentive, handled our group well, and kept us very happy. The food and drink was all over the scale though. The Margaritas, while strong were simply not tasty. I think they had too much water in them. If you like creamy vs chunky guacamole, this is your dream. The guac was great and very smooth. I ordered a mole enchilada and the sauce was FANTASTIC. My girlfriend ordered fajitas and it looked like it was microwaved frozen chicken (and tasted like it too). I would rate this 3 stars for a normal sized party."

  • "We had dinner here before our band played at Parkside lounge. We had about 8 people, and I was able to make a reservation just a few days in advance. The restaurant is small but we had a great table with plenty of space. The food was awesome, some of the best mole that I have had. The server was really accommodating with dietary restrictions (we had vegetarian and gluten free in our group ...) and he was just a great, kind guy. Definitely will be back here."

  • "I was looking for a Mexican place in the LES and stumbled across El Maguey y la Tuna. Wow, were we pleasantly surprised! First, the service was amazing! The waitress took time to explain their specialties and even brought out little samples of a few different moles for us to try! I can't say enough good things about the service. For drinks, we had a jalapeno margarita and red sangria. Both were delicious. The drinks were also quite strong. I love spicy margaritas and this one was better then 95% of the ones I've had in the city. As for the food, it was quality home-style Mexican, and we were very happy. Overall, a great experience, we will definitely be back. Authentic, family owned restaurants like this deserve your business!"

  • "Went on Cinco de Mayo. Set menu that was over priced for Cinco de Mayo. Charged us for chips they served to us. We paid $12 extra dollars for chips."
