Los Olivos has been a local favorite for many years. Straight forward and delicious Mexican food. Great margaritas. The best thin style tortilla chips to start off your meal. Set in an old adobe style building in the beautiful Scottsdale Mall. Be sure to stroll thru the Mall after your meal. The Mall is an outdoor, flower filled area surrounded by the Scottsdale Center for the Arts, several restaurants, and the library. Art and food festivals are held here as well as free concerts.

This place was recommended to us by our hotel - great find! Located in Old Town, there is free parking and just a short walk to all the shops.

Staff were very welcoming, casual and down to earth. There was live Mexican music playing, which added to the atmosphere.

Food was great - amazing portions, good prices, and tasted fantastic. Free nachos and salsa to begin.

Excellent food in large portions. Service was very, very good. I'm not sure what the hostess's problem was, but she was not welcoming, not even barely friendly. I'd try again anyway, as I really enjoyed the food.

The food served here is what a lot people would associate with "Mexican" food: beans, rice, burritos, tacos, fajitas. All of it is done very well. The decor is simple and the flavorful food is served on very hot plates with bubbling cheese. I really enjoy the shredded beef dishes and like to save some of the salsa from the chips to add to my rice.

Service is fast and friendly, and they have a variety of tasty lunch specials.

It is a little hard to find and parking could be better.
