This is not a fancy place at all. That said, the food is very good. Service was top notch, and prices fair. I went with a party of 22 and they handled it without missing a beat.

We saw some reviews that looked too good to be true. From the outside, this place looks like a dive, empty weed fields next door and an old sign. However, this place is fantastic. We were there on a Saturday evening about 5:30 PM with...More

Excellent food and very warm hospitality. First timers and will definitely be back !! The drinks were big, the meals very tasty and hot. Only thing negative is the shrimp in the quesadillas were over cooked and hard. Otherwise fabulous.

Love this place. Looks like such a broken down converted farm building on the outside. But the staff and the food make it an amazing experience. I’d been coming here for years but had a gap in my desert visits. Returned recently..and either my memory...More

Great Mexican restaurant. Live mariachi band that was actually quite good and complemented the food and atmosphere without being too distracting. We drank and ate and laughed for hours and will definitely be back again. Be forewarned the “large” margaritas took us the entire dinner...More

Hi Jake, I have now been to Macario's place twice during the past year. I really don't know the history of that particular restaurant. It may be best to email them directly!
