Since 1993, El Maguey Y La Tuna has been a family run business serving the general public a taste of traditional Mexican cuisine. For ten years, El Maguey y La Tuna became the prime location in Williamsburg Brooklyn specializing in Regional cooking from Puebla, Mexico. In the midst of business flourishing, El Maguey Y La Tuna was temporarily shut down to an unexpected fire in the building. However, not even a fire could stop the longevity of this family run business.
During the reconstruction stages, the family decided not only to rebuild but to relocate to the Lower East Side. Besides being home, the family moved El Maguey Y La Tuna to the Lower East Side because it observed a vacuum of traditional Mexican Cuisine. After a year, El Maguey Y La Tuna continues to serve residents from Lower Manhattan,Williamsburg Brooklyn and tourists a taste of Puebla on the Lower East Side.
