Historic Scottsdale restaurant serves classic Sonoran-style dishes. – In Short
When the Scottsdale Civic Center was being built, some lunatic suggested tearing down Los Olivos--Scottsdale's oldest Mexican food restaurant--to create a parking lot for the new mall. Gracias a Dios, Barry Goldwater himself put the kibash on that misguided notion, and it's still a Scottsdale favorite for the kind of good old Sonoran-style Mexican food many of Arizonans grew up on. Carne asada and steak picado (served with homemade flour tortillas hot off the griddle) are a must, but for a simple taste of nostalgia, go for the chile rellenos and green corn tamales.

BEWARE! DONT GET SWINDLED! Mediocre Food! – We arrive at 8:15 on a Friday night, the doorman promptly stopped us gestapo-style to inform us that we must pay a cover to go in the bar and buy a drink. The waiter then advised us that music would not begin until 10:00, we promptly left. On the way out, I questioned the doorman about the lack of entertainment and he said "Do you want your money back" to which I agreed. He reached into his pocket & pulled out the $10 bill we had paid with. He was low-classed, haughty and didnt bother to apologize, needless to say we wont be returning. This was Los Olivos' 3rd & final chance to redeem themselves, on prior visits we had food that was mediocre at best & service that was worse. FYI to the chef: when you feature a dish with huge prawns the customer shouldnt have to peel them!

Good Food, Good Value – Los Olivos continues to survive city encroachment by offering good food at reasonable prices. Food consistencyvaries from time to time but one can always count on a fine, fun atmosphere, cheerful hosts, good service and good Sonoran food.

Native – I've been eating at Los Olivos for over 40 years. It's still the best authentic Southwest style Mexican food. My only complaint is that I can't still eat dinner for less than $1.

Grande es Los Olivos – An oldie but definitely a goodie. Park behind in the garage, step back in time, and enjoy food the way it use to prepared. From margaritas to homemade tortillas Los Olivos is the BEST!

The best in AZ – IMO, Los Olivos is the best - and most consistent - Sonoran-style Mexican restaurant in Arizona. I've been coming here since 1985, driving from Tucson just to dine often, and have never had a bad meal in the 100+ times I've eaten here. The two table salsas are perfect...one is mild and has a cilantro touch, the other a hotter 'taco' sauce. Try the green chile, the beans, chicken burro, and rellanos. Thank you, Barry, for saving this place!

Excellent – On a four day visit to the area, we ate here twice! Everything was very fresh. The fajitas, taco salad and carne asada were excellent. As of course were the margaritas! Tortilla chips are served with two excellent salsas - the chipotle salsa especially was my favorite, a little bit spicey and extremely flavorful.

The "REAL" Thing !! – Recently had the pleasure of dining at Los Olivos while vacationing in the area. Excellent food, super friendly accomodating staff and very good prices for the quality and portions received. We returned for a second time before we left for home, and look forward to dining again on our next visit !!
