After having a mediocre experience at the Macayo's in Tempe, I decided to try a different one. This one is not any better. The service was good, but the food was bland tasting and not gluten free as they promised. The rest of my party...More

We went to Macayo's of Surprise last night with our grand daughter. We were pleased again with our meal. They have endless chips and salsa and will bring a hotter salsa if you ask. The chips are warm and are not greasy. They will keep...More

Very disappointed with food. Service was good. Waitress was attentive. Steak quesadilla was worst I have ever had. Shrimp enchiladas was so so. Loud rock music in bar. Will not be back.

Went here to take friends after eating at one in Tempe years ago. No ones meal was very good. All mediocre. Waiter wished he was elsewhere but warmed up a little as we went along. Very bland watery salsa. Machined margaritas. Wouldn't recommend
