Sunday Buffet

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... read 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

Believe all the bad reviews you've read about this place. This was some of the worst Mexican food I've ever had. It was so awful, we left about two thirds of it right there on the plate and left! The beans were flavorless and half cold, and the meat was greasy and poorly cooked. Yuch!

Ate here for dinner, the waiter was an older guy that was in his own world. Our food came and apparently I ordered bone in chicken enchiladas. These suckers were huge!!! He didn't comp my meal or offer anything new. No apology either. Pretty disappointing and we had to keep asking for refills on drinks, chips & salsa.

There were ten in our party and they handle large parties well. The food was great. The service was great. The parking lot was a lake but all of the parking lots are lakes this time of year.
