4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013 via mobile

Really good Mexican food. Atmosphere is authentic. Drinks are good as well. Definitely recommended. Better value than many other Mexican restaurants in the area.

“Dissapointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

this place came highly recommended by hotel and was a big let down. While it has great decor and ambiance, the staff seems uninterested in their work Our waitress was unattentive and bordering on rude. Basically unavailable all evening.

Food was average to below aveage. I had fajitas. They were OK, but I have certainly had better.

Dissapointing given the hype and history of this place.

“Decent food and a very cool building!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

We popped in here for a quick snack and a drink. We didn't order much food, but the price was decent and the margaritas were delicious and cheap at happy hour! The best part was the building. It had a great mix of modern, almost kitchy flair, but also had a sense of history. I read that the building was constructed in the early 1900s which made it even cooler. It was a nice stop to get off our feet after a long day of shopping.

“Great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

It was a beautiful day, and we sat outside while enjoying our food. Food and service were very good. I would highly recommend Los Olivos in Old Scottsdale.
