We have given this several chances. Unfortunately, it leaves us irritated and disappointed. The service is ok depending on your server. The food has gone REALLY downhill. We have dined in and ordered to go. The Togo experience was horrible. From forgetting half the order to it being wrong to the COST to the rudeness of the staff. . We... More

The Wife and I were deciding where to go for a nice late lunch and we dropped in to our local Surprise Macayo's - Great Choice! Light crowd = fresh food and great service and quaint atmosphere. Had the chicken pablanos with their baja and enchilada sauces (and rice and beans). Everything was perfect and we had an enjoyable mid-afternoon... More

Went here for lunch. There weren't that many people here, but the waitress had a hard time getting to us for some reason. We ended up being waited on (more or less) by the Manager. The food was very average, but there's plenty of it. The decor is fun and festive.

There is nothing spectacular about their food. The beans are good, however. I'm not a drinker, but the people ordering margaritas looked like they were having a good time.

Very disappointed with food. Service was good. Waitress was attentive. Steak quesadilla was worst I have ever had. Shrimp enchiladas was so so. Loud rock music in bar. Will not be back.

Overall, the food was decent in regards to it being a local chain restaurant but lacking imagination in decor and menu options. The menu is the standard that you would find at any Mexican place in the world but there are a couple of gems that are worth mentioning. The first being, they offer a local beer pairing on the...

Went here to take friends after eating at one in Tempe years ago. No ones meal was very good. All mediocre. Waiter wished he was elsewhere but warmed up a little as we went along. Very bland watery salsa. Machined margaritas. Wouldn't recommend

I loved my first visit and plan to return, for their "Happy Hour," with my wife's late husband's "Senor Mug."

I usually love Macayo's. Their baja sauce is delicious. This family trip was not that great. Service was a little too slow with empty chips and drinks, the salsa had way more tomato chunks than usually, when the food came out some of the plates had dried beans and rice. They obviously sat under a heat lamp for too long.... More

We were greeted by many employees with smiles.on their faces. My grandson came in with a Squrtle Character and the hostess and server both treated the stuffed animal like he was a guest. Very good food and delightful atmosphere. Server was very friendly. We will.be back!
