About Macayo’s Mexican Kitchen

Family-owned and operated, Macayo’s Mexican Kitchen has been serving fresh, homemade Mexican cuisine since 1946! Still used today, almost 70 years later, are the signature recipes created by original owners Woody and Victoria Johnson. These two were committed to quality ingredients served with a warm and friendly touch.

Woody and Victoria Johnson began Macayo’s in 1946, opening their first restaurant on Central Avenue in Phoenix, Arizona. That day they established the standards on food quality, freshness and guest experience that continue today. You will taste the tradition at every table, in every dish and every flavorful ingredient! Every family has their secrets, the Johnson’s just happen to be recipes!

Stretching out as far east as they have yet, the Mesa Macayo’s location opened in 1982, with dining for everyone! A great family restaurant with plenty of seating inside, a beautiful patio that sits right off the lake and a balloon man every Friday night for the kids to enjoy!

Also, join them for happy hour in a large upstairs bar, completely secluded from the dining area. And, for those nights you wish to dine at home, they have the best takeout offers and service!

Keep an eye out as they are remodeling this location, completion scheduled for early 2016. Plans include the usual cosmetic updates; interior and exterior paint, new tables and chairs, lighting etc. The most exciting plans are building an additional front patio, reconstructing the entrance for more space and increased comfort for dine-in guests!
