Macayo's Depot Cantina

300 S. Ash Ave. Tempe, AZ 85281 | Tempe | 480-966-6677

Location Description:

For more than a half-century, this local chain has been serving up sopapillas, enchiladas, and rellenos. Don't take our word for it--ask President Obama, who stopped here for dinner during a post-election visit to Phoenix. The story goes that the chimichanga was invented here, and we tend to believe it - this signature dish says a lot about the Sonoran-style cuisine served here.
