Macayo’s

IMG_0153

If you grew up in Arizona, then you have eaten at Macayo’s Mexican Kitchen. Founded in Phoenix in 1946 by Woody and Victoria Johnson, Macayo’s has been serving the Valley for 70 years. They have worked hard to create a family feel to their restaurants by making hospitality their number one priority. Many of Macayo’s recipes have remained the same as has many of their traditions. I grew up in the days of ordering an open faced cheese crisp for an appetizer (along with some yummy chips and salsa). I’m also a big fan of their chimichangas with their awesome Baja sauce. But the best deal has to be their Señor Bob or Cha Cha mugs. You purchase one of these and bring it back for a margarita refill at a great price. I have many fond memories of eating here (especially at their Depot Cantina location in Tempe) and hope to keep my own tradition going for years.
