My husband and I were back in the Phoenix area where we spent the first 3 yrs of our marriage 30 years ago. We frequented this Macayos location weekly. Talk about nostalgic! The atmosphere was still just as great as were the food and drinks. We were here early and sat in the Cantina area for our food and drinks.... More

My favorite Mexican food is here. Love the Monday Chimi lunch special. Reasonable prices, good service, 2 patios, and views of the water.

We were a large group and the service was excellent. The food arrived hot and in a fair amount of time. The food seemed authentic and very tasty. The only disappointment was the dessert it was very doughy and a little greasy, the fried ice cream may have been better.

While visiting Phoenix my wife was craving Fajitas we invited a few local friends and recommended this place Really nice ambiance. It has a nice deck facing the lake, but you may want to eat outside at night, heat of Phoenix is brutal. 110f when we're there Service is good. We were seated promptly. And we were a group of...

It was noon on a Saturday and the place was packed, and well it should be serving such delicious Mexican food. Wife and I celebrated by ordering fajitas -- chicken for her and shrimp for me. It is easy to be prejudiced in favor of fajitas, as they are served smoking hot, very attractive. In our case, the eye appeal... More

1st of all we were seated with the old A/C swamp cooler & fan blowing right at us, uncomfortable & made our food cold in a few min. Asked the waitress if they could at least turn the fan off, she acted like she didn't care. We ordered a appetizer after eating it, she never cleared away any dirty plates... More
