We ate here on a drive from Homer to Seward, and we were pleasantly surprised at how good the food was. My dad had the shrimp, chicken, and steak fajitas and I had the steak fajitas. The food was fresh, seasoned perfectly, and sizzling on the skillet. Delicious rice and decent refried beans complemented the fajitas. The service was slow... More

I have had good meals and I have had bad ones here. The service is ok and the value isn't horrible. So I would say role the dice.

We used to live in Homer and had frequented Don Jose there. This was our first time at the Soldotna restaurant. The service was slow, we had to ask twice for some guacamole and several times for some "hot" salsa, the one they gave with the chips was basically catsup. The "hot" salsa had very little spice... My wife and... More

While on vacation we ate dinner at this restaurant. Server seemed to be confused with our order, not understanding what we ordered. Hubby then repeated order in Spanish, but still server seemed puzzled. She delivered our beverages so awkwardly, I had to fight the urge to get up and assist her. My fajitas were served without tortillas and I had... More

Very close to the Aspen Hotel. We picked it because we were intrigued by the combination of Mexican and Italian. Turns out it was really Mexican and some pizza choices. Mexican was really what we wanted so it was good. They didn't have any crab for my first choice because their supplies hadn't come in. We had learned that this... More

We stopped in after not being able to come to a decision on where to eat & we were pleasantly surprised. The food was pretty good & reasonably priced. When we go to Soldotna again & we are hungry we will definitely eat here again.
