Maciel's serves delicious tacos with a nice variety to choose from. We had everything from fish to spicy chicken and they were all great. The queso was fantastic. The service was fast and everyone had a smile. Great place for a quick and delicious meal.

A lot of the lower rated reviews say that the food doesn’t have great flavor, but it’s authentic Mexican food! NOT Tex mex! Everyone here was super nice and accommodating. The prices were a bit different than what I expected, as trip advisor said it...More

Authentic Mexican food made with only the freshest of ingredients...and AMAZING flavor that rivals anything we've had in Texas. We scarfed every last bite of our steak fajitas. Some of us are low-carb, and they happily subbed lettuce leaves in place of tortillas. Salsa and...More

Maciel’s bowl of Chipotle Chicken soup represents the best bowl of soup in town. Period. It’s filled vegetables and chicken and is anchored by rice and an intoxicating smoky broth. I love their salsa as well. Don’t miss this spot!!!

So we went to Mexico 3 months ago & visited this place that did homemade this & local that. I thought it would be the best Mexican food I would ever have. Who knew that Memphis, TN is the home to the best food EVER?...More

There is not a better taco place in the Memphis area. Period. Tacos can be ordered individually in many styles. I personally love the fact that I can get a lettuce shell to go with low carb diet. I highly recommend!

We went here for dinner and were surprised, after reading the reviews, to find they have seating upstairs!! This second floor seating is only open for dinner, during which you order from your table, not from the counter. I had the tacos (chicken tinga and...More

After running the 1/2 marathon, we wanted good food and have it delivered. This place met both needs. The tacos are excellent and plenty of food.
