Restaurant Olivia is a favorite of mine. It is only about a quarter of a mile across the border in Nogales, Sonora, Mexico but, it is an entire world away in taste. The experience is Mexican, in every sense! The food is well prepared and so fresh... I had a spicy chicken dish with flour tortillas made on the spot. Unique salsa and crunchy chips... The wait staff is excellent! They are very attentive and patient; answering questions that probably seem silly, checking on the patrons and refilling drinks, chips and salsa without prompting. The dining room is air conditioned and the decor is inviting. This is a solidly "Upper Middle Class" establishment with the quality and service of a restaurant over twice the price a quarter of a mile away in the USA. Nogales, Sonora is a fun town that I have been visiting for a long time during trips to Arizona; both for fun and for work. I have been visiting this place on these trips for over 10 years and, I'm happy to give these nice people their first review on Tripadvisor.
