Phoenix New Times' Description
A new take on Macayo’s from the third generation of Johnsons, the family who’s been running the Arizona-based chain of Mexican eats since Grandpa Woody Johnson and wife Victoria founded the family business in 1945, this Arcadia restaurant features hit-or-miss Mexican-American fusion dishes at prices three to four dollars more than you’d expect them to be. Best bets are to forgo the entrées and opt for a few starters, shareable plates, or snacks like chicken or veggie tacos, shrimp flatbread, or guacamole topped with Dungeness crab.
Tips from foursquare
I think it was Meh.
I have tried so many different things here and have yet to be disappointed. LOVE the tacos, especially Al Pastor and Costilla. Even their fries are amazing
The tableside guacamole was fantastic but the salsa could have more heat. Loved the carne and al pastor tacos. Definitely finish with the churros. Friendly staff and lovely patio to enjoy!
Nummiest brunch. French toast is AMAZING!
Try the chicken skewers or the PB & J de puerco. Phenomenal. Cucumber margarita is delicious as well
