Just okay

Good drinks, festive and bright decor, wonderful staff, but the food was just okay. One item we ordered was a quesadilla and the bottom was complete grease. The other food ordered was good but not great.

Gallo's serves delicious Mexican food in a friendly family atmosphere. The food was well prepared. I had a delicious chimichanga which was pleasantly spicy and crispy, very fresh. The service was excellent, with the waitress attentive, but not hovering. The only reason I didn't give it five stars, was that our table was close to the serving station, and I... More

We are quite far north of the border to expect decent Mexican food, but you can find it here! The service is fast and friendly and the food is piping hot and delicious. We had the cheese enchiladas and beef chimichangas. Both came with rice and beans. We will definitely return in the future.

Stopped here for the buffet. It was pretty good. My only quibble is we weren't offered chips and salsa nor we were told we could have ordered off of the menu. My husband would have probably skipped the buffet and gotten an entree. Oh well. Live and learn. The buffet food was decent and included enchiladas, taco bar, fajitas, and... More

This is a pleasant place to go for good food and drinks and to catch a game on the tv. Everyone is very friendly and the food service is quick

My husband & I stopped by on a Sunday evening for dinner. The decor is bright, & the restaurant looks clean. Our server was prompt & attentive. My hubby had carnitas, & I ate fajita steak enchiladas. We both thought the food was surprisingly good. However, one teeny complaint...the pieces of bell pepper & onion were GIANT! Maybe slice them... More

Stopped in for dinner with our youth group. They were able to seat us quickly but took a long time before taking our drink order. Then took a long time before delivering our drinks. Then took even longer before taking our food order. I understand that there were several of us so getting the food out to us took a... More

Taco Azteca blows this place out of the water. Each time I come it gets worse so I think this was our last. The servers we had just don't seem to care anymore.

As a California native, I know good Mexican food. And I was not expecting to find anything decent in Fairbanks, Alaska. Gallo's was a surprise. Not only was the food tasty, the service was mind blowing. We were with an entire high school football team and they managed to get all the orders straight and the food out in such... More

I heard the ad on the radio in anchorage and that's how we ended up here. We were driving to a diner and said F it! and tried it.. Everyone in my party loved their food... Is it the best mexican I ever had? No... But they had all the typical stuff. And they did it well. I can see... More
