Not so now..........came last night with the Wife and with very few patrons in the dining area we sat for a long period of time till a young lady showed up with chips and... read more

My friend from Healy, Alaska called me and said,"he was in Fairbanks and wanted to take me me to lunch at Gallo's Mexican restaurant, in the Bently Mall Complex. I had not heard of the place even though I had shopped there many times. I must say it is an impressive Mexican Style Building on the Outside. The inside was... More

I was not overly impressed. Food was pricey, even for Fairbanks standards. My wife's chicken was not adequately cut and trimmed of the fat and gristle. The chips and salsa were good, but small amounts. We looked at the buffet but did not get it. Fair amount of choices and average appearance. Service was adequate and friendly. I was disappointed...

We had avoided Gallo's for years due to a couple of unsatisfactory experiences. However, they must have new management. Our waiter was Old Mexico all the way - very solicitous - and the food was authentic and top notch. Everything was as good as you would expect at a good restaurant along the border. They don't have to call it... More

The food was very good. Order taken promptly, and delivered as quickly. Service was just OK. It would have been nice had the server checked more often in case we needed more chips, salsa, etc. Also, the upholstery in our booth was in bad need of repair.

Filled up on the Fiesta Platter appetizer so had no entrées. It was really good, hot and plenty of variety. There was a good selection of entrées but our idea of sides is a bit more than rice and beans. We sat in the bar section, which was very casual. Friendly service and reasonable prices.

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
