Two of us had the special combination plate (smaller portions with several to try) and thought each of the items was delicious. I typically only order a salad and am glad I ordered what I did! Our other dining partners have eaten here before...so glad they took us there! Would recommend it to anyone who likes good Mexican food!

though i have been to macayo's many times during previous visits to the greater phoenix metropolitan area, this was my first visit to the mesa location. though i am also a big fan of local, independent mexican restaurants, one of the great things about this chain is that, no matter which location you walk into, you can expect large portions...

I'll start this by saying that the place was clean, staff was great, and the patio view is nice, but overall nothing special can be said about the food at Macayos. It's safe Mexican food that you can get at any Mexican food chain. If you are from the valley, you can find better Mexican food. If you are visiting... More

I have eaten at this Macayo's since 1985 and have always found the food, service, and atmosphere to be very good. I like to sit on patio overlooking the "lake" that meanders through Dobson Ranch. My personal favorites are the shredded beef tacos and the chile rellanos.

This was the second time that we had been to this restaurant in the past month. We were pleasantly surprised the first time that we went. The wait staff was excellent and the Chimichangas were delicious. We love the fact that it was on the man made lake, it made for a beautiful atmosphere. It was about 102 degrees at... More

We went here with a big family group. We found the food mediocre . the taco was dried out, although the filling ok. enchilada average and bland. the tortilla soup was ok. they do have a vegetarian and gluten free menu, but those eating from it felt it was all mediocre. Vegetable fajitas were hunks of zucchini, etc. without any... More

Went there after the dinner rush and had an excellent meal. Our server was on top of things, fixed a miscue on one meal ordered. I had a chimi with huge thick pieces of pork that was moist and spicy. The food is basic Mexican food and didn't disappoint.

Not somewhere I would choose to go back to. The building looked really cool, but the food was not good. The Margarita's had this really funny aftertaste, the salsa was one of the worst I've had, and the chips and guac were not very good either. Skip this place.
