Good Mexican Food - Fast Service

We ate at Macayo's on Bell road last night. Overall it was a good meal for everyone. We liked the chips and salsa and our entrées were tasty. The service was amazingly fast on a busy night. Our only complaint was the water. We aren't soda drinkers and usually just order water. They served us tap... read more

I measure mexican food on how it compares to Macayos. I enjoy either the Chicken Maximillian Burro ( baja style) or the Baja Burrito. I've tried to recreate their sauce at home, but it never tastes as good as it does by the pro's at macayos. Really good Enchiladas, Baja Mexican Pizza, and frozen margaritas. Food and service is quick... More

I have been to this restaurant before and never had a problem but this last Friday night the food was not right. I ordered a red chili burro enchilada style. The burro arrived promptly but the chunks of meat inside were so tough it could not be eaten. The meat was at the point to qualify it for "too hard"... More

I've been to this location a couple of times while visiting friends in the area. Both times, the food was amazingly good. Just about anybody can fill a tortilla with meat and cheese, but Macayo's brings great flavors to all components of the meal. I had the Baja Verde Carnitas Enchiladas and really enjoyed the flavors - spicy, with a... More

This is the fourth time we've eaten here when we've been visited friends who live locally. We now call this 'our' restaurant. We were with our friends again. The restaurant was full and we had to wait a short while to be seated but when we were, the service was very quick. We had an excellent meal, there's plenty to... More

I like Mexican food, but this was a little too spicy for me, it was good but I don't like spicy at all. My hubby liked his very much, authentic Mexican food, atmosphere and music

Rosa was our waitress. We never wanted for anything. She was on top of everything. We ordered off the lunch menu, Shredded Beef Burrito Enchilada style and Chicken Chimi both meals with rice. They were not overflowing with sauce. Both were excellent. We will be back . Chip and salsa were plentiful and delish.
