The staff were friendly and fun. The food was good, basic, Mexican. The tortillas looked fresh. The gordita was excellent. Enchilada could have used more sauce. Carne Asada was darn good.

I'll admit, I was skeptical of finding proper Mexican food this far North. I'm used to eating at hole-in-the-wall taquerias along the East Coast and in the Southwest where the space is minimal, the prices are cheap, the music is cheerful, and the delicious food...More

They advertise on the radio for delivery and have a to-go and eat-in location. It really depends on what time you go there on how the food will be. Maybe there are different chefs on different days, can't figure it out... Though this is Alaska....

Definitely beats out some of the other Mexican Food Restaurants that we have in Fairbanks. The food has a very authentic Mexican flavor. The only down side to this restaurant is they do not serve alcohol. So no Margaritas. This is not a sit down...More

Just typical greasy Mexican food. Not fresh. I won't go again. If you're looking for delicious Mexican flavor, not necessarily my go-to. But I guess if you're looking for something cheap and quick this might be what you're looking for.

Good Mexican fast food. Same as the Anchorage restaurants. Had live music when I ate there last. Salsa bar. Good cheap meal. Can't go wrong.
