The exterior is not impressive and the interior is even less impressive. But we had a waitress with a great smile and she was wonderful. I didn't care too much for the chips and chile. The chips tasted a bit stale and the chile was bland, which is a big deal in New Mexico. But when our entrees arrived it was like divine heaven! My husband had the steak fingers which were tender and crispy and wonderfully addicting! I had the Sunday Special which consisted of a 7 oz. steak and cheese enchiladas. The steak was cooked perfectly and the enchiladas were wonderful thanks to a delectable and tasty red chile sauce. Seriously, I think this is the best red chile I've had in New Mexico so far. Garcia's was always my favorite for the Red, but Mac's just moved into first place in my book. Next time, I'm going to order a bowl of just the red chile as dipping for the steak fingers! I really liked the charro beans too. They had a smoky flavor and the cheese was a nice addition. Another lovely surprise were the sopapillas! They were light and so very tasty. Usually I don't order sopapillas because they're too thick and filling, but these came with my meal so I took one taste and was hooked. Forget the honey, just dip them into the red chile! Our cheap steak place diet splurge has always been the Monte Carlo, but I was really happy to stumble upon Mac's today and we will definitely be back! Again and again.
