Hot and extremely hot salsa was first given to us with chips as we made our way through drinks and many menu choices featuring Mexican and American dishes. Combos were offered, too.

Our meals were excellent. The telephone directions to get there from nearby were perfect. Beer by the pitcher. Our only complaint was the chips and salsa--some of the chips had been heated repeatedly and were rancid. (But which ones?) The salsa was delivered in miniature carafes, but pouring that on a plate and trying to dip a chip was not... More

This restaurant is wonderful. I have been here multiple times over the years. They have a Mariachi band that plays when you eat on Saturday night. The margaritas are great and all the food is good. I also judge restaurants by the beans and rice, and these were good as well. You can't go wrong with this restaurant. :)

Visited with a friend with coupon offer. Food was ok and plentiful and a good variety. For a Sunday I was surprised to see the restaurant very empty which gave the place a derelict atmosphere. Will not visit again.

My husband and I love this place especially because of the live Mexican trio. We are usually in Scottsdale on weekends, so they are performing. They will come to your table to sing at your request (such as for a birthday). We have always been happy with the food as well.

I just love the appetizers at Los Olivios Norte. We just the love the Loaded Nachos with Beef, Guacamole and Sour Cream. My wife love the Sampler Platter too. The two Salsas are great but watch the hot one. Service is Friendly too and drinks are kept filled.

Food was terrible. Family of seven had lunch there, one child, one teen, 5 adults. Order included Taco Salad, Topopo Salad, enchiladas, tacos, quesadillas. No one liked his or her food. We are not picky eaters. Lima beans in Topopo salad! Looked more like a chef salad with shredded chicken on it. Vinaigrette on salad was sparse and not very... More

I order the Mexican Flag when I eat here. The best enchiladas in AZ. A must restaurant in Old Town Scottsdale.

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
