I have eaten in a lot of simple family run Mexican places in the SW over the decades and this combination of value, pleasant folks and varied choices works well..the beans and chips/sauce were exceptional which sets F and L apart from most places which seem to get those items from the same suppliers.Chicken mole was excellent. Negative review I read before going mentions confused nasty wait staff which seems to be old news since I especially watched for that and all was fine....maguerita in a plastic pitcher is not unusual for me but unusually tasty home made dipping sauce and non-greasy beans are

Was very impressed with the food. I order some chicken enchiladas with a creamy poblano sauce. It was excellent and full of flavor. Everyone else at the table loved their food too. I also thought the prices were very reasonable and you get a good amount of food.

One suggestion to the restaurant is to work on the menu on your website. My husband wasn't feeling well so I was going to bring him food back but when you go on the website there is about 25 dishes that you cannot see. There is an up/down button that doesn't work. He probably would have had me bring him home something if he was able to see all of the selections.

Service was very good. I thought it took a little longer than normal to get food but food quality made up for it, and they kept bringing us yummy chips and salsa while we waited. Only bad part was my son ate too many and couldn't eat his dinner when it came, but that is what to go boxes are for..

We were lucky to get a table on the patio. Service was slow, but friendly. Food was good and not spicy at all. It was good but not exceptional.

Everytime we vacation in Arizona, Frank & Lupe's is a must! The little cantina out back is the best place to relax after a day of walking thru Olde Town Scottsdale. Stop in during Happy Hour and enjoy the 1/2 price apps and drink specials. The nachos are the best....layer after layer of Mexican goodness...not just a sprinkling of ingredients. Staff is friendly and the "mist sprayers" make this an ideal location.
