    Food is good but over priced. There has to be a better bang for your buck for the food. Cheese dip is good

    I've never been disappointed with any of the entrees of tried here. The Sour cream-green chile cheese enchilada or chile poblano are highly recommended. But again, it's all good!

    This is the original Macayo's. The food is great. The atmosphere at lunch is a bit hectic but it's worth it.

    I am really not a fan... The food seems prefabricated and stale. I feel the decorations get more thought than the menu. Both are of the same quality. Ho hum items slathered in cheese really not my kind of Mexican food so close to Mexico.

    This funky mayan looking building on Central houses a Valley mexican food mainstay. The food is consistent and good. While the interior could use a little updating, it is clean and the food does not disappoint.

    We went for lunch. This location is very busy. The parking lot is small but there is a second lot to the south. Light Rail construction makes it a little difficult to get there but the food is worth it. Our waiter was very attentive.

    First of all let me note that my wife went to the Macayo's in Surprise and loved it. This is the only time I've written a review of a mediocre place, but the Central location was not up to speed. The cool design on the outside and longevity of this place had perhaps raised my expectations, yet I was really disappointed here. The food was bland with seemingly really cheap ingredients. Perhaps I caught them on a bad day, or maybe the manager is focused on reducing his food cost, but I don't think I'll be back. The prices weren't even that good. Mi Patio and Los Compadres are in the same area, and they are WAY better and a better value.

    The place is very close to my office and I eat lunch here about twice a month. The food and service are always above par.

    I go there for their lunch specials. You can eat good at a sit down place for what you would pay for a fast food meal.

    For a lunch under $15, it is hard to beat this. They have a good "lite" menu for those of us who are watching our weight.
