Service here was AWFUL! I only saw my waiter once. Had to get different waiters to services us. It felt like we were just a bother. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME & MONEY HERE!

This place is great. Whether you are looking for a good lunch/dinner or a place to hangout out, drink and watch a game you will not be disappointed. We have a huge crowd that they host from time to time and they do a great job of serving drinks and food.

This is the second time after a Triathlon we chose to go Macayo Depot Cantina for our post race celebration. It is also the second time that the service was horrible. We arrived at 11:00am and they had a DJ blasting the tunes on the patio, for himself. Other than the DJ there was not 1 person on the patio. We would have liked to have sat there but not with a DJ playing causing us to have to yell across the table. We got sat in the dining room only to have the manager come tell us we had to move to the bar. It was a mistake that we were seated in the dining room. So we go from a comfortable booth to a high top with stools, thanks for that. We were greeted quickly and place our drink order and appetizers. We finished our drinks and appetizers but nobody ever came back to check on us or take our order. Finally someone from our table had to go ask the bartender to send over our server for an order. We got our order placed and the food was as good as we expected. We ran out of water several times and had to ask for more. All this time the manager is socializing with the table next to us. He brought out a round of shots for that table and proclaimed they were something he just made up. Heck, we'd have been happy with water, but can't seem to get that. By now they were seating people in the dining room and we all commented how we wished we were in there where they get service. On our first trip here after a Triathlon we had the exact same experience only on the patio. Our server rarely stopped at our table and we had to ask other servers to take an order for us and get us drinks. As we were leaving someone in our party made the comment "We need to cross this place off our list of after event party places." And we have. It's a shame too, I have many pleasant memories of Depot Cantina 15 years ago when it was a bar/restaurant. Now it appears it wants to be a nightclub destination for the kids. Good luck with that concept.

Gave this place a second chance, but their staff is still not the best, they are slow and when we walked in, we stood there without a greeting, just looks, a HELLO HOW ARE YOU? or I'LL BE RIGHT WITH YOU would be nice. Will never go there again. Their food is way overpriced for what it is, I'm Mexican and was raised with 'real' Mexican food and this is definitely not 'real' Mexican food. Both times they have put in my order wrong, you have to ask for refills on your drink. They will ask you if the seating area is OK and before we had the chance to answer, she was gone so we took it upon ourselves to move. The waiter told us he'd be right with us when we sat where we wanted to get our drinks. 15 minutes passed, nothing, another 5 minutes passed, nothing. We had to get up and find 'our' waiter. Don't go there, don't waste your money. Also- I had a fundraiser there for an organization at ASU and they agreed to pay us 20% of sales from those people who either had a flyer or mentioned our organization. We had well over 40 people attend and in the end they said "they didn't remember" to that agreement. I had to talk to several managers there and got a measly $35 FOR ALL OF THE BUSINESS we GOT THEM. This place is a load of B.S.

Surely you can do better in Tempe. Went with folks after work, staff was slow, food was fair, but not worth the time or $$

I really like this Macayo's. The ambience is as good as the food. It is also located right next to the light rail which is convenient if you want to eat here before heading downtown before a game. We have come here before a play at Gammage as well. The prices are decent, the atmosphere is fun and the food and service are good.
