One think I like is consistency. I always eat the same thing at all the Macayo's Restaurant. The food was wonderful and the Top Shelf Margarita was great. One added debit was the service and the atmosphere. We were able to sit outside without roasting and spent two hours just enjoying. The service by Elvia was exceptional.

The Scottsdale Macayos is a wonderful atmosphere. The chips and salsa are always delicious! (Ask for the habinero salsa if you like a little more heat) The service was a little slower than normal but, attitude and personality was friendly and made up forward it. The food was delicious except for the tortilla soup which wasn't as flavorful as in the past. Looking forward to my next visit and margarita.

Went here to dinner on first night. Excellent meals, service and very quick turnaround from order to being served.

We have eaten at a lot of Mexican restaurants, most of which are fairly ordinary. Macayo is a small step above the rest, but is still a comfortable, casual restaurant. Families, couples and groups of friends would all be happy with the choice. This is our third time to eat at Macayo and we will certainly go back on future trips.

This is a great place to have a nicely priced meal. Service excellent! Attentive and food was delicious. Enchiladas very good. And I loved the salsa. Not sure what happened with other reviewer.
Try this place. I think you'll like it. An from St Louis and travel a lot.
