Our History

Welcome to Los Olivos Mexican Food Restaurants.  Family-owned and operated, housed in a charming structure with a unique architectural character and design, our old-town location was originally built many years ago by our grandfather, Tomas Corral.  The Corral Family left their native Mexico for America in 1919 because our grandmother, Cecilia Corral, did not want her sons working in the mines of Mexico.  Many old-timers will remember the building as the home a bakery, tavern, pool parlor, and even a chapel at one time.

Who We Are Now

Combining their native talents, the 2nd and 3rd generations of the Corral Family has brought Los Olivos from a little adobe eating spot to its present critically acclaimed dining establishments in Scottsdale.  Our talented family members have worked together for years.  An uncle designed and hand-crafted the unique Spanish style chandeliers, cousins enthusiastically greeted you and wait on tables, daughters keep the books, sons tend bar and serve your favorite margaritas, and an old friend from Mexico still rolls tortillas fresh every day in the kitchen.  The Corral Family is proud of their tradition of good food, a warm and friendly atmosphere, and of being able to contribute to the history and heritage of Scottsdale for sixty-one years.

We hope that you will agree that this tradition has been maintained, and remember, "Esta casa es su casa y vuelvan pronto" (This is your home, please return soon).
