We were told about this when we ate at the Scottsdale LoLo's last Summer. Glad to hear that there is more room as the original was rather cramped. I can tell you that the best experience I have had yet was at the Scottsdale location. The staff was friendlier and the food was better. What has your visits been like?
I think the stress of working in such cramped quarters at the original place probably affected the staff's attitude there although I've always found them to be friendly.
I've not been to the Scottsdale location. There's just something that doesn't sit right with me when places expand from an iconic place that made them unique to something newer and "Fancier". I'm a nostalgic cuss and still like the older original places!
The Same thing has happened to Carolina's. They opened a second and third location "Uptown" Phoenix. http://www.carolinasmexicanfood.com/
Nothing can replace the old original locations as far as I'm concerned.
Same thing bothered me when TV's went from Black & White to Color!
