Great Mexican!

I thoroughly enjoyed my first visit to Frank and Lupe's! They have an awesome menu, extremely reasonable on their prices, and delicious margaritas. The service was pretty good and the food came out quickly. I would love to come back when it's a bit warmer to enjoy their outdoor patio. Thanks for a... read more

Our hotel front desk recommend this place for a good Mexican resturant. The food was average at best, but the service was really awful. Had to ask for water 3 times before finally getting some. It was 110 degrees, why would you even have to ask? I didn't mind that is was an older building, but it was too warm... More

We got the last table on a Friday night and looked forward to enjoying this popular restaurant. I had Guadalajara Tacos - the only dish on the menu that didn't include rice and beans - and they were good. But my husband was disappointed in his enchiladas, receiving three cheese when he had ordered a combination of beef. The chef... More

We were told Frank & Lupes was authentic Mexican - as opposed to Americanized Mexican or Tex-Mex. I cannot say if it was authentic but it was definitely not what you would get at more mainstream places. The menu had some of the usual things like fish tacos but also had some other items like the stuffed sopapilla. The food... More

This place is tucked away in old town Scottsdale. If you stay at the Hilton Doubletree in Scottsdale they will shuttle you there. Nice back patio and decorated in traditional Mexican decor. The food is great and so are the margarita cocktails!

My business associates and I ate at Frank and Lupe's for dinner and it was decent. The food was good and reasonably priced. I had the cheese enchiladas which were good but very different than the the enchiladas I am used too in Texas. Service was good and the place wasn't crowded. If you want to try something new, give...

We were looking for another Mexican restaurant to add to the many that we enjoy in Scottsdale. The food was very good, however the service was very slow. We were there on a Friday at noon and there was only one other table there so it certainly wasn't due to a large crowd.

Stopped in around 9pm one night so the place wasn't busy. We were starving. The food was delicious, the service was good and the price was unbelievably inexpensive. Very enjoyable, quaint, little place with authentic food of old Mexico.

Food fresh, hot and tasty. Very nice change from the big business chain Mexican restaurants. Good food at a good price. Would recommend this to anyone avoiding the chain food restaurants.

I heard this was the real deal when it came to authentic Mexican food. The food was OK but not what I was expecting. Too much re-fried beans and rice, just about every dish had it, I find that combo overdone and not good. Service was good but couldn't make up for the taste of the food. I will go... More
