If you have never--or not in a while-- taken a few moments out of your busy life to relax, feel at ease, and enjoy a splendid, stupendous, and remarkable Mexican meal...breeze on into this quaint harbor of Mexican Delights. I visit, commonly, the Oracle locale, and hands down this place never disappoints, even if by a narrow margin, they are more than happy to appease you. The atmosphere is warm, traditional, and FUN, and the prices are very reasonable. This is especially true when your eyes see the portion sizes, all the colors, and just the all-around food presentation. The service is above ordinary, and in some cases Extra-ordinary. The management is well focused and determined to make sure that your dining experience is top notch. The powder room is immaculate, as well as the dining area, and patio. Now for the Cuisine...There are not enough adjectives to describe the impeccable food that YOU MUST implicate upon your palate...so many taste sensations, too many to choose from, but chose you will...and you will return for more. The food presentation alone is to die for, but the flavors and taste are anything far from AMAZING!!! I've also noticed a variety of wine, beer, and other mixed drinks, with a bar inside the dining area, as well as seating off the patio accessing the bar. This IS the place to be as a couple, family, or even dining alone. This is MY favorite place to be, they have yet to disappoint me. TY El Charro!!!
I visited Casa Vicente on a Friday night with my family and I left with the most exceptional experience. Casa Vicente is not your typical restaurant where you sit down and expected to leave as soon as you get your dinner. At Casa Vicente you are expected to sit down relax and enjoy the atmosphere. They have live Flamenco on Friday and Saturday. The service was exceptional and answered all my questions and even gave me suggestion on the extensive spanish wine list. There was a great tapas list which was hard to choose from the great variety of seafood, fish, lamb, chicken, vegetarian options, rabbit, etc... The food was amazing and perfectly seasoned. My favorite was an extraordinary beef tenderloin tapa with a green peppercorn sauce over patatas pobres (spanish style mash potatoes.) The children were offered chicken nuggets that were made from scratch and fried potatoes. They absolutly loved it and is more healthy than processed chicken nuggets. The entertainment was spectacular and should not be miss. I recommend to make reservations since they are always busy on weekends. Go to Casa Vicente you will not regret it. Mike and family
I've been going to Macayo's since living in Phoenix back in the 70's. This Macayo's on the east side is really friendly, beautifully decorated and have wonderful servers! I love the food at Macayo's and my favorite item there is the Baja Pizza! You must try it! It is a unique 'cheese crisp' with their omg to die for baja sauce, small pieces of grilled chicken, tomatoes, cheese, and other yummy stuff. In fact, I like their Baja sauce so much that I will order a side of it and dip everything in it! Macayo's has the best shredded beef tacos in town. So many of the 'authentic' Mexican restaurants put their meat in a previously made taco shell. That's unacceptable to me. Macayo's frys each one to order and puts gobs of meat, lettuce, and cheese in it. I love Macayo's and go there at least once a month.
