This place was recommended by Segway tours of Scottsdale, and we did eat after the tour.Good food, We had the taco plate, and everything was fresh.

Title says it. Solid Mexican food that is delicious, without a huge Old Town price tag. Great service, clean restaurant, large patio outside. Menu had a good selection, as well as the drinks. Ideally located in the heart of Old Town. Great spot to get a bite to eat, then continue on with the evening's activities. I would highly recommend,... More

The first test for me in a Mexican restaurant is the chips and salsa. Frank & Lupe's chips are light but tasty. The salsa has a chipolte flavor that is not spicy, but very flavorful. We had chicken fajitas. The meal was simple but expertly prepared. I think they prepare a more New Mexican style dish, which is fine. The... More

I really hate to write a bad review, but I am very disappointed with how they prepare their food to go. I ordered through doordash and food arrived ahead of schedule, so no problem there, but I was missing 3 items from my order. I ordered the Combination plate and was missing my taco and two sopaipillas. Everything else tasted... More

Seriously, the best cheese crisp ever. We visit F&L each time we are in Arizona. Service is great and the staff is super friendly. There's not tons of tables, so be prepared for that. The guacamole is great as well!

We were sat right away by a disinterested waiter. More people came in after us and we were forgotten about. We finally placed our drink order and had to wait longer to place our food order. I ordered tacos that came in uncooked tortillas. There were 3 of them for $15 and they were mini tacos. My husband ordered a... More

Several guidebooks directed us to Frank & Lupe's and we were not disappointed. Convient to Old Scottsdale shopping and attractions, the menu had many options. Old building acoustics make for a loud crowd, but not more than you'd expect from a popular spot.

Have been here many times for dinner in year's past and always enjoyed the dive-ey atmosphere of the outdoor patio. Our first lunch here and the 110 degree temps drove us inside. Lupe's Enchilada plate never disappoints, and the shredded beef soft tacos were on point. Service here has always been causal and a bit spotty, but that just goes... More
