Macario's is one of the restaurants that delivers to the BW Date Tree hotel. Took about 20 minutes to arrive. Food was pricey and nothing special. They only provided 3 corn tortillas w/ my carnitas. Best part is the guacamole!! Very tasty and a Large portion. I would return solely for the guac.

Been there for a reason. Food and drinks are fairly priced and both food and drinks are well done. Great Magaritas ! Had their giant shrimps . Excellent. Very good Mexican food in funky not fancy decor. Pretty hard to go wrong going to Marcario's.

My wife & I had lunch at Marcarios, where I used to eat quite often when I worked in the Valley many years ago. The food was just as good or even better than I remember. The owner greeted us and showed us the buffet, which is a Monday only tradition. His son Christain waited on us and what a... More

We heard about Macarios from a fellow hiker on a trail in Palm Desert. Large margaritas, delicious fresh guacamole, spicy hot salsa with the chips, the mild salsa was more like warm tomato soup. Enjoyed the gueritos but maybe a bit to cheesy. Large portions for the main entree. Overall a good visit. The music (gentleman on guitar) was very... More

A friend and I dined here and had delicious flautas and enchiladas. There were also beer specials that night. A man sang in Spanish and played lovely guitar, not too loud. This tiny hole in the wall has half paved and half dirt parking, and is located in the middle of nowhere, Indio, with storage warehouses and scrub brush around... More

We 3 chose from a highly varied menu most of which was derived from Tex-Mex cooking. They appeared to have a lot of different fish and seafood based dishes. I chose the beef fajitas. They were served steaming and sizzling with plenty of vegetables but the beef was over done. She chose the mole' in chiladas and really like them... More

Fantastic Mexican food, reasonable prices and outstanding service. The shrimp fajitas are out of this world and so are the tamales. Our waiter David was the best ! Don't miss this place if you're in the desert.
