My first choice restaurant and frequent there often. Accomodates families with excellent service. Good choices on the menu for all family members. Once I found Macayo's I have never eaten mexican food anywhere else. Love the ambiance.

Went there with a group of friends. The food and drinks menu was elaborate. I tried cheese crisps, Tacos and Fajitas and were all tasty and seemed authentic. Also very good flavored Margaritas. An evening well spent at this place.

Best Mexican food in Phoenix! Love the cheese crisp! Great margs too! They serve authentic Mexican food, never had anything that wasn't good. Always great service. Get there early or you'll have to wait.

My husband worked at Macayo's as a student. He organised a reunion of friends, whilst visiting Phoenix. Service is friendly and prompt; menu is varied and has range of choices. Food came out together with no changes to complaints. Very good.

service is good. Menu is overwhelming with certain allowable combinations. Beef taco was only fair. My wife did not finish her tostado, chips were fresh and salsa was good. Would not go back.

Very good chips and salsa, they will bring you as much as you are willing to eat. The baja burrito is very good, get a side of warm baja sauce and you'll love it. Save room for the chocolate chimi's, they are great!

Great food, family atmosphere, wonderful margarita and Happy Hour prices. Large portions and the chef prepared a chimi without meat upon my request. They need a more prominent sign because the car repair shop on the corner hides their building and the large billboard on...More

This building is beautiful and intriguing from the outside, and once you go in it's a little more casual than you may expect. Mainly booth seating and some arcade games for the kids. However it was the quick service and great food you would expect...More
