Excellent for families quick service and good food. Excellent children's menu. Very good guacamole and excellent appetizer flautas. Can get busy later in the evening. Lots of margarita options!

“Haven't found any better Mexican in Scottsdale”
Reviewed December 22, 2012

We hit Macayo's after golf & really had a good time here. Happy hour margaritas were cheap and the food was really quite good. I would come back in a heartbeat.

“Always Good Quality Sonoran Cuisine”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

Colorful Mexican decor. Varied menu with reasonable prices for lunch and for dinner -- I love the Poblano Pollo entree, the red chile taquitos, sweet blue con tamales, and the arroz con frijoles mexicana with fresh flour tortillas.

“Great Mexican Good”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

We've heard others raving about Macayo's but this was our first visit. Beans and salsa with chips arrived immediately and were replenished throughout our meal. I ordered the fish tacos. The fish was cooked well and the tomatillo sauce added good flavor. My wife ordered the green corn enchilada vegetarian style. She loves corn and was in heaven with this enchilada. Before we left the restaurant she'd already found the recipe on-line. For dessert we shared the mini chocolate chimi’s. These chimi’s are oozing with chocolate but still have a good crunch. The entire meal was great. Now we know why both visitors and locals requent Macayo's.

“Not bad at all!”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

Service was a bit slow and I was expecting mediocre food from this place, but it was quite decent in fact.
