Very good authentic Mexican food. Always try and eat here when visiting my mom or dog sitting for her. I live in Nebraska and they believe taco johns is Mexican food.

We use to really like this place. The last few times we have gone in the prices or on the rise which is understandable but the portion sizes and quality of the food is going just as fast in the opposite direction. I would pay more to keep quality. But quality is not balanced with cost anymore. Another scratch off... More

This place is in an older building but has some of the best Mexican food not just in the Prescott area but in all of Arizona. I highly recommend the Chili renellos with the chili con carne sauce. The chips and salsa/hot sauce are excellent. The great quality and quantity of food plus a full bar make this a must... More

Run down and terrible food. My whole family agrees...nothing that we ordered was cooked right...it all smelled pretty bad. We all ended up eating a little bit of a taco. Pretty easy to gag. A definite one stop. The staff is very nice; sadly we will never be back.

After visiting this restaurant & enjoying my meal I had to return for a second visit before I left! The food was very good. The chips warm, with two types of salsa. I thought I ordered a small meal but, no, it filled my plate. The waitstaff was very attentive. We had 3 visits to our table. They weren't intrusive... More

The food is Authentic Mexican Food. Olivas is a family owned restaurant that has been in Prescott Valley for 20 plus years. The family members and employees for many years are keeping the establishment running in the same way it was originally done. Eileen is the widow of Mr. Olivas and her and her kids are keeping the tradition and... More

Olivas is your fairly typical Mexican restraurant. Nothing fancy, but clean. Good service, food and margaritas. This was our first time here and we would probably go back again if we're in the neighborhood.

We dine here often and found that the food is good and the prices are affordable. There are many similar restaurants in the area but we always return to Olivas. The chips and salsa are the best around.
