I was given a gift card for this place. My husband said we would have been better off if we had thrown the gift card in the trash. I had a taco salad. There was quite a puddle of water on the plate. The few corn chips they put down on the plate before the wet lettuce (I guess )... More

Nice people, fair service food wasn't bad but Taco King is better. And cheaper, but here you can have a drink.

Walked in and the hostess was on her phone. Didn't even greet me I just walked by without her even noticing. The bartender was more interested in the waitresses then the customers. Pretty disappointing

Our family of 3 ate here for $60.00 including tip. We found the service to be pretty good but the food was only mediocre. It tasted like the frozen food you buy at Sam's or Costco and heat up in the microwave. The enchiladas where rubbery just like they had been microwaved. I would not go back to this place.... More

We got into the restaurant about just 5 minutes before a clcosing. The staff welcomed us. Offered the best services and a great food. It was a great welcome the first day in Anchorage.

Service was very, very, very slow at 3:30 on a Sunday. Two glasses of water and two different types of salsa were brought to the table, no chips. Waiter appeared about 15 minutes after we were seated and took our good and drink order. Finally had to ask for some chips but wish we hadn't. One salsa was too spicy... More

Midday needed lunch and my wife suggested this place as we were driving by. I thought it might be Italian but was pleased when I realized it was a Mexican restaurant. The food and drink were really good. I'd go back in a minute.
