I have to admit, of all the Mexican restaurants I have ever been to this is the best. Let's be clear, I am not totally nut's about Mexican food but this place really get's it done. I was recently in Cozumel, Mexico and the food there didn't even come close to being as satisfying as Los Magueyes. The staff is beyond friendly and service is always fantastic. However, for me the absolute star dish would have to be the red salsa they bring out with the chips in the beginning of the meal. Totally addictive you will be asking for more and more of it. It's a great place for a quick lunch. Unlike the last reviewer, I don't think this place is at all expensive. The prices are actually really reasonable. I recommend the Chicken Flautas, the Steak quesadillas and the burrito Michoacán, also the Mole is spectacular. It's sweet but definitely not overbearing. If you like authentic Mexican, this place...in my opinion does it better than Mexico!

I settled to order the fajitas ($12.95) since it had beef and vegetables (onions, bell peppers, tomatoes) - the ONLY dish in the entire menu to have such a combination. Then... the food came out. I tried it, and I was surprised - the tortillas tasted fresh (definitely an achievement for any Mexican restaurant in Miami)! The fajitas came out to be very good. The chicken quesadillas were also really good. I felt like this restaurant can hold its own even in Texas. The ambience and decor are also nice - very Southwestern. The bathrooms are clean and nice. And the snowball dessert tempts me (fried vanilla ice cream). Oh, for chocoholics, don't come here, or get your chocolate fixing elsewhere - there's no chocolate offerings for dessert. Not even a chocolate candy in the candy bin. I went back for the second try... the prices were still exorbitantly high for this kind of food, in my opinion. The meat didn't seem to be of a high caliber, and the onions were too sauteed. The tortillas may have been store bought but then cooked on the premises again to bring out the "freshness." All in all, this is still the place for Mexican food in Northwestern Miami-Dade as far as I know.
