We had a delicious dinner the night before thanksgiving! The four of us were happy with our meals. I had the carnitas dinner and it was very good. The tortilla soup and the tacos were also very good. Three of us ordered the blood orange Margherita and we all got a second round they were so good. The wait staff... More

Sat out on the patio near the fountain mid-week for dinner. Quiet atmosphere. Server was very attentive. Food was very good. Sangria was too sweet; ordered a margarita for the second drink and it was just right. Overall nice meal, pleasant atmosphere.

Our family ate here today- had chimichanga's and chicken taco salad- yum! Both plates were excellent and servings were so generous that we were able to share. Tim was our server/bar tender- made an excellent frozen margarita and service was excellent and very personable. Will definitely come again! Worth the trip!

We took a party of 12 to Macayo for dinner on a Saturday night. Since it was Saturday, the restaurant was busy, so the service wasn’t the fastest in the world. But the server was very attentive, and did his best to keep up. He was also a good sport, which was good because we had a rather rowdy bunch.... More

Food arrived quickly and was very good. The pork was a little dry, but with a little extra salsa was great.

We have been dining at this location for as long as it has been there. In the last year or two they have 'updated' the decor, not nearly as charming as it was before. But more than that, they revamped the menu. Old favorites are gone, replaced by items which have no appeal to us. Our last visit the only... More

Came here for happy hour and the prices were reasonable for happy hour. The margarita hit the spot and it was your standard margarita. They quickly set you up with chips and salsa which was a nice plus too. The menu is typical mexican fare and the kitchen delivered on this, guac was fine. Chimichangas were decent. Nothing wrong with... More

Enjoyed one of the most memorable lunches with a good friend and tried the new garden fresh organic margaritas. What a fabulous treat, flavorful, distinct flavors that felt cleansing with the absences of all the sugar normally in a margarita. We got the one with seasonal fruit, cucumber, and cilantro, suggested to us by our server. Could not have been... More

In Arizona, every family will tell you about "their" Mexican food restaurant. This one has been ours for over 20 years. Though management and the menu have changed a few times, I can always count on their Tortilla Soup to be the best. I great place to come for happy hour and Taco Tuesday, just make sure to sit in...
