We went here for dinner on a Saturday night. We were greeted and seated immediately. Our server was helpful, attentive and efficient. The beer was cold, the service was great and the food was good. We would go back there again for dinner.

We've been here a few times, we always order the Mexican Corn appetizer (love this stuff) and prickly pear margaritas. Service is a little on the slow side but we're not in a hurry. The servers are always friendly.

The staff is friendly and eager to please. We come here during our annual Scottsdale Hiatus. Did not love the food this year. It was not bad, but just not much punch/zing. The menu is new. This used to be my parents favorite Mexican restaurant....More

We ate a late dinner at Macayo's after arriving in town for a visit. Although the restaurant was nearly empty, the service was slow. The Cheese Crisp appetizer was good and the Chimichanga was just average. We ordered Fried Ice Cream for dessert and were...More
