I really expected a better experience here. The tableside guacamole was great, the drinks were so so and VERY overpriced. The tacos were okay but I have had better at the Barrio Queen. I would not return here, once is plenty.

We went on a Food Tour and got to sample two items. They were fantastic and it was our favorite stop on the tour. We will definitely be back for lunch or dinner.

We ate on the outdoor patio, so I wasn't really in a position to notice the inside seating area. Perhaps you should contact them and ask. Regarding the Scottsdale Old Town area, we also dined at Los Olivos. We were... More

Old Town Scottsdale’s heart is beating to a Latin drum, now that The Mission has arrived and brightened the restaurant scene. Renowned Zinc Bistro Chef Matt Carter is now cooking up modern Latin cuisine blending influences from Spain, Mexico, Central America and South America. Home made Tortillas, Arepas, and Salsas are made fresh daily and all meats are prepared on a Plancha or a grill using pecan and mesquite wood that instills a rich flavor.
