Decent Mexican/Italian restaurant on the Kenai

Stopped in for dinner on a Saturday night. There are at least two of these places, which serves both Mexican and Italian food (including pizza.) Kind of a weird combination, but it works. Good chips and sauce. I had a burrito that was very good, my friend had a chimichanga that he said was fine... read more

Server swapped tables and new Server was not Friendly and was not interested in taking our oder for food and drinks. Was not offered chips and salsa for our table. Main dishes were 3 star , but rice and beans were 1 star. Like out of a Walmart can. Server stated to us, meal was prepackaged and just heated ?... More

Crappy service. It took forever to get our foo then it was warm not hot. There was a large wedding party there before us, and when we left some of them still hadn't gotten fed.

There were six in our party--everyone had something different--no one complained and believe me they sure would. The food was very good, service was ok, had an earthquake while we were eating dinner. 6.2 pretty interesting!

Ate here May 14, 2015 for dinner. My husband had two beers and their chicken quesadilla. I had a Mountain Dew and lasagna. With 18% tip the meal came to just over $47. Service could have been a little more prompt, but we did not have to complain, just wait a little longer than we normally would have. My husband... More

Yesterday my wife and I stopped at this spot along the road between Anchorage and Homer. The server was wonderful...but overloaded. It took a while to get the food, but it was worth it. Hot and fresh and delicious. Big quantity and fair price. Check it out.

Stopped by for dinner. We had the enchiladas & chipotle chicken. The food was good and authentic and the hot salsa was perfect. The only thing I would improve would be to use white meat chicken & stop using the stop using the cheaper dark meat chicken in ALL the dishes. That would make a big difference. The interior is...

My husband enjoys Mexican food so we tend to go to quite a few Mexican restaurants. The decor was rather decorative with unique chairs and table tops. Our server was very attentive. Our $8 margaritas tasted terrible and the glass was filled with ice. My beef enchiladas were tasteless. My husband would recommend the spicy chicken taco and the chili... More

Have been coming here for 10+ years. Always had the burritos, enchiladas, tacos. Very good. Service is always on-point. They also serve Italian food ( but I have never tried).
