Stopped in here for a burrito the first time and authentic street tacos the second time. Delicious, quick, and a great value for the cost. Will surely return when I'm in town.

This joint is a little off the beaten path, so if you're here without a car, you have to walk a half mile out of town. The hike is well worth it! All of their meats are slow cooked to perfection. I'm an avid fan of good pork, and their pork tacos do not disappoint! Their tacos are authentic, with... More

This is a small roadside stand reminiscent of those found in rural Southern California. It features a lean-to enclosed front porch with seating for about 8 customers. The menu includes standard Mexican items like tacos, burritos, and enchiladas. Food is ordered at a window and prepared fresh while the customer waits. We opted for soft beef tacos with a green...

The service was amazing. The good is to die for. The atmosphere is really comfortable. The beans and rice are so so good. The chili Verde is to die for. You have to give this place a try.

Best Mexican in Ketchikan and one of the best deals, too. If you order the large burrito you better set aside some afternoon nap time. The hot salsa is actually hot--very tasty, too. It's basically a walk-up shack, but there are a few seats under the canopy. Sometimes there's tamales or pozole' in addition to the tacos, enchiladas, and burritos.

I avoided eating at this place for years because the appearance of the place. It looks like a run down shack. The fact that when it is rarely open it always had business got my attention. I then inquired about it and got good reviews. The food is good. The customer service is very poor.

You will feel you just stepped back to the barrio in L.A. but find yourself in in Ketchikan. Boy is the mexican food good.Not fancy, cable spools for tables outside on the side of our main road but but you just don't get more authentic LA style roach coach food.

Fresh food. Fast, Friendly service. Fair priced. Had the super burrito. Too big to eat in one sitting. Saved half for later. Still delicious the next day. Next time getting regular size burrito

Garcia's Galley came well recommended to me by a Californian who knew his Mexican food, so I was disappointed when the food was poorly prepared, overpriced, and served on a paper plate with plastic flatware. Too bad - this town could use a high-quality authentic Mexican restaurant.
