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!

My friend and I were both hungry for a Mexican lunch. It was noon and hardly anyone was there, which was our first indication. The salsa was very ho hum. I asked for their spicy one but was also disappointed. The staff didn't appear like they cared that we were there and as a result, our service was less than... More

One of macayo's local chain of restaurants. Food is OK, but nothing special and menu with limited choices. Staff was good and attentive. Only one salsa choice and is bland based on other restaurants. Menu was typical fare, again nothing special. But the food is good, so can't miss if just want a Mexican food experience. Atmosphere is also good... More

We eat here once a week and enjoy the great variety available. We enjoy their chips and salsa, tostadas, tacos, and my favorite chicken fajita quesadillas. Prices are reasonable, servers are pleasant and generally do a good job.

Some friends and I went there for lunch. Good food, nice patio. I like that they give you a fancy glass you can bring back for a margarita. If you like Mexican food it's a good place to go.
