Good Mexican Food - Better Atmosphere

We ate at Macayo's after a round of golf. The food was good, but it wasn't anything out of the ordinary! You won't be disappointed if you are expecting standard mexican food. The atmosphere was really cool though, and they had a great outdoor patio. It was a good spot for us to have a couple beers... read more

One of many Macayo's restaurant locations in the Phoenix area. This one has a nice location because it backs onto a small residential waterway, so outdoor eating on the terrace is nice. The carnitas were just OK, but not as flavorful as they could be. The enchiladas were good but not great. They claim to have invented the chimichanga, but... More

My husband and I ate here Tuesday, March 3rd for our dinner meal. I discovered this restaurant "seasons" all its food so my choices were limited. "Seasons" to me means something akin to a 'dry rub' which dries out the meat (IMO). I asked if the shrimp was "seasoned" and was told they would not "season" mine. I ordered the... More

Food and drink were great... service was awesome. The outside patio was great. I would recomend they get chairs that are not so loud when moved. There was even a guy who did balloon animals for the kids. I would go back here.

We went for dinner on two occasions when visiting Mesa. The margaritas were fantastic! Food was good, but portions are HUGE so keep this in mind when ordering! Can't go wrong with a good Mexican dinner.

Nice atmosphere and good service. Restaurant was clean and very colorful. Menu selections were adequate and all seven meals very very nicely prepared and served in an appealing manor. Recommended highly.

The walls,blinds,lamps and just about anything you can think of is covered in thick layers of dust and dirt. There are old... More

Quaint place and food was decent. More for the yuppie's who like little food for high price. Food was a little too high priced but close to the hotel we were staying at.
