Just a stone's throw away to the south of the lovely River Des Peres
is the Chippewa location of St. Louis' answer to Mexican dining, El
Maguey. This smaller location in south St. Louis, near Lindenwood Park
and Shrewsbury, gets crowded most nights during dinner hours. The menu
includes several steak and chicken meals, such as "Steak Mexicano," a
T-bone with onions, tomatoes and peppers, "Steak El Maguey," a rib eye
cooked with mushrooms, peppers, onions and tomatoes, or "Pollo
Michoacano," a grilled chicken breast with chorizo and melted cheese.
El Maguey also offers burritos, enchiladas, fajitas and quesadillas, as
well as numerous combination plates.
