Surprising chain of fast Mexican food restaurants. Food is pretty darn good, very cheap and served fast. And they deliver! Fairly broad menu for a little place. Nice friendly, helpful people.

Coming from places where I could get great street tacos anywhere I found a bit of a struggle when we got to Anchorage. No taco trucks anywhere! Well, this place has taco truck cuisine in a "fast food" feel dining establishment. The prices are a bit higher than I like but we're in Alaska. You will find all of the... More

The food here is good. The salsa bar is nice to mix and match plus not having to try and track down a waiter. Its a little different setup than most mexican restaurants. Overall not bad, great in a time crunch.

Food is average in taste and quality. Service is fast (order at counter and pick up when ready). Ate here in 2011 when visited Anchorage and remember the food being better. Was a little disappointed this time.

This place reminded me of the authentic mexican food, that I in Texas. I had the tacos and the gorditas. The gordita is not a Taco Bell gordita, but an actual corn gordita stuffed with meat. Good stuff and it was smooth coming out!

Nice decor inside but the food was not good. No flavor. Steak tacos were served with barely any meat. I would not go again.

I love their beef tongue tacos they are the best! I also love their enchiladas and carne asada plates. There rice is perfect, I am super picky about my Spanish rice and love their flavorful rice.
