But the original of this family owned restaurant is still open in downtown Scottsdale. It's not to be missed for the food, the atmosphere and the decor. One of a kind designed by the founder's uncle. Kids will love the fish tank.

This family run, reasonably priced Mexican restaurant was terrific! Authentic painted murals and Mexican-southwestern art dotted the walls and halls.seating was in several rooms. Hot and extremely hot salsa was first given to us with chips as we made our way through drinks and many menu choices featuring Mexican and American dishes. Combos were offered, too. Service was friendly, prompt,... More

Our meals were excellent. The telephone directions to get there from nearby were perfect. Beer by the pitcher. Our only complaint was the chips and salsa--some of the chips had been heated repeatedly and were rancid. (But which ones?) The salsa was delivered in miniature carafes, but pouring that on a plate and trying to dip a chip was not... More

This restaurant is wonderful. I have been here multiple times over the years. They have a Mariachi band that plays when you eat on Saturday night. The margaritas are great and all the food is good. I also judge restaurants by the beans and rice, and these were good as well. You can't go wrong with this restaurant. :)

Visited with a friend with coupon offer. Food was ok and plentiful and a good variety. For a Sunday I was surprised to see the restaurant very empty which gave the place a derelict atmosphere. Will not visit again.

My husband and I love this place especially because of the live Mexican trio. We are usually in Scottsdale on weekends, so they are performing. They will come to your table to sing at your request (such as for a birthday). We have always been happy with the food as well.

I just love the appetizers at Los Olivios Norte. We just the love the Loaded Nachos with Beef, Guacamole and Sour Cream. My wife love the Sampler Platter too. The two Salsas are great but watch the hot one. Service is Friendly too and drinks are kept filled.

Food was terrible. Family of seven had lunch there, one child, one teen, 5 adults. Order included Taco Salad, Topopo Salad, enchiladas, tacos, quesadillas. No one liked his or her food. We are not picky eaters. Lima beans in Topopo salad! Looked more like a chef salad with shredded chicken on it. Vinaigrette on salad was sparse and not very... More

I order the Mexican Flag when I eat here. The best enchiladas in AZ. A must restaurant in Old Town Scottsdale.
