Great Mexican food. Authentic flavor and great selection. Nice atmosphere and good service. Full bar with flat screens to watch sports. Family friendly. A good recommendation if you are looking for a good Mexican meal. Chips and salsa included.

I prefer Macayos to other restaurants serving the same food types, cause their food tastes more authentic.

Macayo's is a nice locally owned chain. While you would not call it one of those super local mom and pop places - the food is always good. It's served hot and employees are friendly. There is no real specialty dish, just all the traditional...More

Solid choice for Mexican fare. Enchiladas, tacos, rice, beans all good. Complementary chips and salsa are fresh and tasty. My wife loves the green corn tamales. They have a sweet taste, a la sweet corn cake at Chevy's Gresh Mex. Service is usually good, too....More
