We always have lunch here on the first or last day we visit Scottsdale for 4 reasons: fun outdoor setting, perfect downtown location, great margaritas and really good Mexican food. Puts us in an Arizona mood for sure. We split the 4 shredded beef taco plate and order a couple of top shelf margs (beware the large ones if you... More

While looking for lunch near Old Town Scottsdale, a local guide recommended Frank and Lupe's and we are glad he did. The waiter recommended the #8 Poblano Cream Chicken Enchiladas. He said Lupe has been making that the same way for 25 years. Homemade and delicious food. Too early for a margarita though.

Came by this by accident, and noticed had a back patio for happy hour. It was busy and the servers were not friendly, but the drinks were slow coming, but the food was great tasting. I just wish they had a better attitude towards paying customers.

Food was just okay. I remember it tasting much better. All three of our meals were over sauced. More sauce than meat. Service was not great. No one asked if I wanted a second drink. Guacamole was also just okay, nothing special. Needed more spice.

Seated in the inside patio promptly. Bottled domestic & Mexican beers only. Nice colorful, patio area with colorfully painted table & chairs. Wife had beef flauta combo and I had a carne adovada combo. Definitely lost the old time Soccoro bite, but still tasty, if blander. Pleasant venue, I have been eating here for twenty five years or more. Had... More

Stopped in for dinner at Frank and Lupe's on a Thursday around 5:00 PM. Seated right away by a friendly staff and the food arrived soon after the order. Place filled up quite quickly after 5:00 and I could hear the servers explain the meals to everyone in a friendly manner. Excellent food, my wife's was very hot even with... More

Hole in the wall restaurant in Old Scottsdale. So glad we came here instead of some of the bigger sized restaurants. Service was quick, accurate, and didn't try to up sell. Food was hot and delicious. Will definitely come back here should I ever be in the area again.

We have been going to Frank and Lupe's every time we visit Scottsdale for several years. It has in the past been a favorite. However the last two times we have dined there, the food has been disappointing. The salsa has now been run through a blender, the margaritas came in plastic cups, and the enchiladas no longer have the... More

While visiting from out of state, we asked a local store owner for dinner recommendations. He suggested Frank & Lupe’s which was close by in the Marshall Way Arts District. We sat at the small, fun bar on the festively decorated outdoor patio. The margarita was delicious and reasonably priced ($8) and the chips and salsa were good, too. My... More

Sad to say the food here was well below expectations. Refried beans were the only food with any seasoning or flavor. Tacos boring,
