Although the outdoor patio was festive and the beer prices reasonable, my chille rellanos tasted like a dirty sponge that had been deep fried then soaked in grease again. The worst Mexican food I've ever had.

Marginal service, some of the food good, some not. No attention to detail here. To be more specific. The chips and salsa, had the salsa spilled on some of the chips, obviously much earlier. The spilled salsa was dried out and the chips that is was spilled on very leathery. Wasn't like it had just happened. Bad start to dinner.... More

There were five of us this time when we headed for Fank & Lupe´s Restaurant in Scottsdale.We had already enjoyed an excellent dinner at this place two years ago. Therefore all of us were quite surprised when they again took us into a wonderland of outstanding meals accompanied by some fantastic drinks such as tequila which was served perfectly. Hope... More

Heard about this place through the Scottsdale Trolley tour so thought we'd give it a try. It was delicious! Simple little place with authentic Mexican food. Went during Happy Hour and enjoyed their cheap margaritas and mini tacos. Complimentary chips and salsa were yummy and the tacos and enchiladas with rice and beans were just as delicious. Nothing trendy or... More

This restaurant came highly recommended. We were a little disappointed...food was better than average but not great, although at very good prices. Margaritas were okay, but not the best I have ever had. Was hoping for a little better based on the amount of people who recommended to us. Maybe it was an off night.

I had the fish tacos, rice & beans. The chips & salsa was good and the guacamole was great. This is old school, not trendy. Takes courage in this foodie town and they do it. It is a little gem.

Went with family that were local and suggested this place. My cousin told me I would be unhappy if I didn't order the #8. Not usually a big fan but these were the best enchiladas I have ever had. You will love it!

Good atmosphere here when busy. The cleanliness of the glasses was suspect though..Only had drinks here as we had already planned to eat elsewhere.

My wife and I have been coming here for over 15 years. If it's on the menu it's going to be great. New Mexican style dishes as well as traditional Mexican. My go to entree's are Frank's Enchilada Plate with red and green sauce (Christmas) and the Carne Adobada Plate. Full bar with good Tequila selection. Friendly staff. Ample parking... More

I always make sure to pay this restaurant a visit at least once everytime I travel to Phoenix. Great food and very nice staff. Get a table out on the patio ~ you can't beat it on a nice night.
