This is our second visit in as many years and I"m glad we went back for dinner. The location of Macario's is a bit difficult but the trip is worth the small effort to find it. The food is good, the guitarist was wonderful and...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

A great place to bring visitors because it's a cute Mexican restaurant. Generally good food, though sometimes inconsistent. Brought my MIL for dinner and our food was served cool on cold plates.

This restaurant is awful. It is dirty and the food got us sick as dogs. Stay away from this place. Rumor has it that it is infested by vermin, should be burned to the ground and rebuilt.

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!
