We have been Macayo's guests for many decades and therefore have observed changes, This change is both a makeover of the facility and the menu. Some of our favorite dishes have been replaced by new dishes. As always the food is great in Woodies tradition.

The original (closed) on Central Ave. was much better, but this location has nicer views of the Dobson Ranch lake. Wife and I were promptly seated and offered beverages. Not much of a draft selection w/o craft beers. Service was good and place was crowded....More

Food was ok, service was slow and my straw had something on it. Not sure if the name change has anything to do with it, but it used to be better. In fairness, It may have just been a bad day.
