Returning after two decades this spot still holds old Scottsdale charm and class. Much in the neighborhood is modern and trendy but the neighborhood and atmosphere of this classic spot with good reasonable Mexican food remains. A definite for visitors who want to see re mid-rise modern building Scottsdale and get a taste of real Arizona.

The food here is very good and the service is usually good. The patio is very nice. When I went two years ago the service was fine but a few days ago they were clearly understaffed and everything took longer than it should have.

We asked a shopkeeper in Old Town where they recommended good Mexican food. Hands down was Frank & Lupe's - food was traditional, prices very reasonable, service awesome.

I had the chance to visit this restaurant again. The food and hospitality were great. We sat on the patio with nice warmers and enjoyed the brisk evening. While food and service were great the quality of drinks, including margaritas were not inspiring. Much better drinking experiences in Old Town.

It's kind of funky, this restaurant. I recognize the curtains from the house of a Mexican aunt. The menu has a nice variety, though I missed the caldo de res. I had pozole. The posole was from a can but the copious amount of chicken wasn't. Just the right amount of picante, as was the salsa with the freshly made... More

A great little authentic Mexican restaurant and cantina hidden away in Old Town Scottsdale. This restaurant is so close to home we almost forgot about it. A last minute Saturday night visit did not disappoint. We always say you can tell The quality of the Mexican restaurant by how good their chips are! The chips were fantastic and so was... More

We have been going to Frank and Lupes for 20 years. It is a must stop whenever we're in AZ. Wonderful stacked enchiladas, Christmas style and great margaritas. We also love the tamales!

Went here based on several recommendations. Guacamole wasn't the best. Had a burrito and it was good. Can't say it was the best but not the worst.

My family and I have gone here a bunch of times. We really enjoy how great food is and how simple it is. The margaritas and sangria are really good. We like the cheese crisps to start off with and everyone goes from there. The deserts are very good as well.

Thank Danielle P
