Macayo’s Tequila Dinner Featuring Chef Eric Justice

If you enjoy tequila and fine Mexican food, then you’re in luck because Macayo’s is currently hosting their Tequila Dinner series every other Thursday night through mid-November at the Scottsdale Shea location. During our Tequila Dinners, we proudly serve up our choice of tequila, along with an expertly prepared appetizer, meal, and dessert to accompany that tequila. This is a great opportunity to get out and have some fun with loved ones while enjoying some delicious food and tequila pairings in the process, so bring your friends

What We’re Serving Up

Our next Tequila Dinner will take place this coming Thursday, October 22, and will begin promptly at 6:00 in the evening. For past dinners, we’ve served up Azunia and Milagro tequilas, so for this one, we’ll be serving Patron. For just $40 per person (or $70 per couple), you can enjoy an appetizer, meal, dessert, and tequila sampling. This coming Thursday, we’ll be pairing Patron with a delicious grilled chicken taco salad with queso fundido, which incorporates four different cheeses, along with jalepeño, chiles, and onions for a huge flavor boost.

We’ll also be serving fried avocado with picante salsa, queso fresco, and chipotle crema; if you’ve never had fried avocado before, you’re missing out. We coat ours in Japanese breadcrumbs and lightly fry them so that they’re nice and crispy without losing their flavor. We’ll also be serving up some Mexican roasted corn served off the cob. All of our Tequila Dinner meals are designed and prepared to complement the taste of the tequila you’re being served, so these dishes will go great with your Patron sampling.
