This is the most authentic Mexican cuisine you can get in Fairbanks. The staff are very friendly and courteous (also fluently bilingual) portions are great, I'm normally stuffed if I don't take some leftovers home. This is a perfect sit down place for lunch. No alcohol menu, so perhaps if you're looking for margaritas or cervezas trying checking out Mayan... More

The food is good and cheap, and the service is fast. Maybe not the cleanest place, but clean enough.

This taco shop is aaawwwwwweeeeeesssssoooooommmmmeee. It's really good. Coming from Texas I have had good Mexican food. Being in Alaska I thought no way this can't be good. It must be like Taco Bell. Well I was soooooo wrong. This place serves great GREAT food. And very reasonable.

The building was once a Burger King, converted years ago to a Mexican Restaurant. I am delighted because the food is great. Service is quick and prepared to order. Sauces and toppings from mild to spicy are provided on a self-serve counter. Right next to sauces is a container for roasted peppers, which will certainly satisfy your taste for spicy.... More

We got two meals to go. You don't get very much rice and beans that way but the quality was acceptable for the meats. Salsa was lacking a bit of flavor however, but the prices are pretty affordable.

I had the adobada gordita and taco, and my husband had the adobada taco and King burrito. The food was delicious and extremely reasonably priced.

TV and radio ads make this place out to be a stand-out and authentic Mexican eatery. I say it's decent but not fantastic. I ordered the Adobada Combo dinner expecting the red chili seasoned pork to be bursting with flavor and zest. It lacked flavor and was mostly bland. Thank goodness they have a salsa bar. I had to doctor... More
