I don't crave Macayo's. I've been there a few times, and it's fine without accolade.

We stopped here for lunch since it was close to where we were meeting a real estate agent. Although we saw that it was right on the waterway, we didn’t realize that they had a patio area where we could enjoy it. It was a gorgeous day (as usual?), so we ate on the patio. Perhaps because it was close to 100 degrees, there was only one other couple out there. With the heat, we weren’t very hungry, so we shared the Chipotle BBQ Chicken Chopped Salad. We enjoyed the view and birds during the short wait for our order. Despite the restaurant being at the intersection of two busy streets, the patio was very quiet.

The salad was spectacular--a well-balanced blend of lettuce, black beans and chunks of saucy out-of-this-world chicken. With the fantastic cilantro lime dressing, Pico de Gallo and cheese, it was light and refreshing. There was plenty of chicken. We enjoyed it so much, we came back the next day and ordered it again. We also tried to re-create it once we got home. We’ll definitely eat here again.

This is a great place to eat. The food is reasonable and delicious. The atmosphere is really nice and sitting on the patio with the ducks swimming in the pond is a special treat. The "chimi" is really a treat.

On vacation with my very good friend who has never been to AZ, (I was raised here), we stayed in Mesa for a couple of days. Fortunately, our hotel was just down the road for Macayo's. I have been eating at Macayo's since 72 (downtown Phx) and don't think that you can get better cheese crisp (an AZ thing) or margaritas that are better anywhere...and trust me, I've tried a bunch! The place was hoppin' even at 8:00 p.m. so we opted to go upstairs. Our server was the best, she kept the glassed full, the chips and salsa full, and made suggestions that we all enjoyed. If you like Mexican...this is THE place to go. Not a hole-in-the-wall, but dang good food.
