At El Maguey, it’s all about la familia. From the kitchen to the front door, the warmth of family invites you to enjoy some of the most delicious and authentic Mexican food in the state, and an embrace of genuine hospitality. Your taste buds can't afford to miss eating food of this magnitude. Since 2006, El Maguey has served Claremore and the surrounding area and is recognized for the freshest ingredients and delicious dishes with their own unique recipes. El Maguey is named for an agave plant and is known for its use in the production of tequila. Owner, Chantal Vidal, says she and her husband had decided on the name because of where her husband grew up, in Jalisco, Mexico. Because it is a family restaurant, they have recently introduced smoothies and shakes to the menu for the young and young at heart, and coming this summer, snow cones will join the selection. Chantal greatly enjoys getting to know her customers and takes pride in knowing that she and her restaurant have served generations. Some of the more popular menu items include Pollo Loco and their famous fajitas. Pollo Loco is an incredible chicken dish with grilled peppers, onions, and mushrooms served with rice and covered in their amazing white sauce. Fajitas can be ordered in six different ways, with a unique spin on each recipe. With a five-page-long menu, there is no shortage of options to choose from, and portion sizes are enough to ensure you leave feeling full and satisfied, and likely in need of a box to take home what’s left. There is also a great kids’ menu, featuring niño-sized portions of traditional entrees, as well as chicken ¬tenders, corn dogs and french fries. There is no other place like El Maguey that combines the pure hospitality with the original and divine authentic flavors that they provide. Give them an opportunity to show you how unique they are, and how their fresh ingredients make all the difference. Come in for lunch or dinner, in Claremore at 1958 South Highway 66.
