We have been going to Macario's for over 10 years. The previous couple of times we were disappointed, not just the food, but a few other things. But no need to go on as that is in the past. We went twice this year and it was fantastic on both occasions. Service was very good when there was just my... More

We live in Indio and have tried most of the Mexican restaurants in the whole of the Coachella Valley. This is our favorite. But don't be in a hurry, the service can be slow. Sometimes we are mad by the time the meal comes. It happens 1/2 of the times we go there. It is worth the wait, though. They... More

We are from UK so this was a whole new experience for us. Very friendly family run. Great atmosphere especially the Mariachi singing Mexican songs. Margarita was very good. Would definitely go again if we had the chance. The only negative was the service was to fast. We had dips to start then fajitas we were out of the restaurant... More

We eat here every time we are in the area. The food is good, service friendly and margaritas strong. We especially like the chili Colorado and the carnitas.

Sergio and wait staff couldn't have been more pleasant and helpful. flavor jumped from the dishes , guacamole wonderful and the house margaritas were wonderful--what else could you ask for? visited during a fairly slow Wednesday Happy Hour--just great for us. it also happened to be margarita Wednesday. no real bar area--couple stools while u wait.

Friends who live in Indio go to this restaurant all the time and we join them whenever we're visiting Indio. Large selection on their menu and great Mexican food. Service is attentive but not intrusive and their big, private booths are pleasant. We like the "Mexico"-type decor.

Visited on a slow Sunday evening and was very pleased. Three different people came by to check on whether I needed anything. Service was great. Ordered a Cadillac Margarita and watched them make it - plenty strong and used the advertised ingredients. Had the fajita and it came to the table incredibly hot and sizzling. Initially thought it was too... More

My experience was not a good one. I was ignored numerous times by staff. Had to ask three different staff members for extra napkins that never came. Had to ask four different staff members for my check. My check finally came once i stood up and went to the area were it seemed that all the staff hung out. If... More

took out of town family here for dinner and everyone had the best time and great food. We loved they have a talented guitar player and really got a blast from the staff coming to our table to wish our daughter a very happy birthday (yes...she was VERY surprised!). If you have 4 or more adults, order the pitcher of... More

I had high expectations for this place. I read a variety of reviews, both here and on other review sites and saw nothing but awesomeness in them regarding this place so it had a lot to live up to. It succeeded. The food, especially the "Camarones Macario" (Bacon wrapped shrimp stuffed with crab), and "Camarones Galicia" (Bacon wrapped shrimp, stuffed... More
