We have been going to Macario's for over 10 years. The previous couple of times we were disappointed, not just the food, but a few other things. But no need to go on as that is in the past.

We went twice this year and it was fantastic on both occasions. Service was very good when there was just my wife and I, then equally good when we were seven. Although always reliable, the food this year just seemed to be better. I am a fish taco guy, and they were exactly what I expected. I had on fish and one shrimp on one occasion and that was a very good choice. The flauta's are the best we have ever had. Welcome back to prime time Macario's, still love ya.

We live in Indio and have tried most of the Mexican restaurants in the whole of the Coachella Valley. This is our favorite. But don't be in a hurry, the service can be slow. Sometimes we are mad by the time the meal comes. It happens 1/2 of the times we go there. It is worth the wait, though. They have especially good ground beef tacos, very good refried beans, and whole beans (frijoles de la holla). The restaurant could use some better ventilation. The margaritas are very good with a lot of choices of tequila. Check your bill, they make little mistakes in their favor. But we LOVE the food here.

We are from UK so this was a whole new experience for us. Very friendly family run. Great atmosphere especially the Mariachi singing Mexican songs. Margarita was very good. Would definitely go again if we had the chance. The only negative was the service was to fast. We had dips to start then fajitas we were out of the restaurant in 30 mins would have liked to have stayed a little longer and enjoy the atmosphere.

We eat here every time we are in the area. The food is good, service friendly and margaritas strong. We especially like the chili Colorado and the carnitas.

Sergio and wait staff couldn't have been more pleasant and helpful. flavor jumped from the dishes , guacamole wonderful and the house margaritas were wonderful--what else could you ask for? visited during a fairly slow Wednesday Happy Hour--just great for us. it also happened to be margarita Wednesday. no real bar area--couple stools while u wait.
