Best tortillas in town. Family owned with 2 locations. Good prices. Food is consistent. We are vegetarian. Love the sonoran style enchilada, or just get rice, beans and flour tortilla. Great salsa. We don't drink but my friends like the drinks, too.

We have been going to Los Olivos del Norte for years and just realized I had not mentioned it on TA. We find their food quite good, the staff friendly & efficient, and always enjoy the visit. The happy hour menu is a real deal during the week till 7 pm I believe. The Old Town location is a little... More

Pinch me and tell me I am not in a shopping mall food court. How can management get away with lackluster food and abysmal service? Servers walk around like zombies, they give you your order auction style (raise your hand if you had the tacos), and the food is so pre-prepared it is akin to industrial cafeterias. The bar serves...

I love the Mexican pizza! It's the best Mexican pizza I've ever had. The meals come with two types of homemade salsa. They have great Happy Hour prices on appetizers and drinks in the bar. The service is always great.

Love their salsas, fresh made and they have mild and hot, but they vary day to day because they are made fresh, sometimes the hot is hotter than others. But I love the freshness. Great bar menu during the week at cheaper prices. My son loves the guacamole and eats and entire serving himself. The service is friendly and very... More

We have been going to Los Olivos for 10+ years, they have the best salsa and my favorite tacos in town. The staff is excellent and have come to know that I will always ask for a bowl for my salsa - you have to ask otherwise you will be scooping salsa off a plate.

The tour guide recommended this resturant and said it was like eatting food from Mexico City. Well, nope, it was like eating food from a fast food chain. The food was terrible; although the salsas were good.

We were eager to try the famous Arizona cheese crisp. Joe, our waiter, explained that their Mexican pizza is the loaded version so I ordered that with machaca, as an entree. Since the kitchen had no green olives to substitute for the black, Joe raided the bar supply and served us the most delicious creation. Btw, their chips & salsa... More

My wife and I had dinner here twice during a recent visit to Scottsdale, and I remember dining at their Phoenix location 60+/- years ago...it is still a good value and very good food. Whenever our travels bring us back to Scottsdale, we will again dine at this restaurant. Muy bien gracias

I love this restaurant. Being family owned, they are very kind, courteous and grateful for your visit. We have been visiting for years and for those who wonder about the "Mexican" in their Mexican food -- well, they hit the nail on the head I think. We spend more time in Mexico than we do here, and my daughter-in-law is... More
