We went here because we had a restaurant.com certificate. They informed us that they no longer participate but did honor ours. It had a nice view of the old town of Juneau.

I usually go more than once! It's good, simple Mexican food with a comprehensive menu. I can't pass up La Favorita no matter how many times I go! They make the best chile rellenos, have never found a place that does them as good.
