Phoenix has many Mexican restaurants and it seems like everyone has an all time favorite. In this picture is Macayo’s which was opened in 1952 after the owner Woody Johnson successfully tried his hand at his first tiny café in 1946. When I first moved to Arizona, I worked across the street from this restaurant and could smell the onions cooking when I walked to work in the morning. Sometime in the late 70’s or early 80’s, the restaurant was expanded and this “Aztec temple” façade was added the front. Woody’s restaurant venture has been highly successful for him. He has many locations in Arizona and Nevada as well as a thriving catering business. Oh yes.....the food is very good!
