Macayo's has been in Phoenix and Scottsdale for decades. We first visited the original back in the 70's and little has changed. The same corny Mexican décor, Mexican food modified for the average gringo, and high calorie show drinks. But somehow the whole package still works. We visited one Saturday evening with a party of 9, and the staff bent over backwards to accommodate. Our newish waiter was clueless, but was so innocent and straight-forward we forgave him every gaffe. The chips and salsa were fresh and never-ending, and the pitchers of margaritas were enjoyed by all. None of the mex dishes were world-beaters, but expectations were met. You'll enjoy yourself, maybe in spite of yourself. Go early as the senior crowd loves this place. On the weekends you'll wait quite a while for a table between 6 and 10.
