Good authentic Mexican Food

I was kind of shocked to be on business in Anchorage and finding a very good "authentic" Mexican place to eat. I have the carne asada tacos with beans and rice and it tasted like so many places I go to in Southern Cal.

I make a point of stopping in at Taco King at least once during an anchorage visit. This trip it was twice. I had the halibut tacos the first day and they were so good, I went back the second day for the same thing. Don't pass up the chance to try this place. Great food and not that pricey.

Stopped in for a quick lunch. Lots of options. Food was yummy, inexpensive and service was good. Nothing fancy but if you looking for a good lunch and have a time limit this is a great option.

Hola! This place serves authentic and great tasting Mexican food. No frills. Prompt service. Not a real dining experience but it's a great place for a quick and reasonably priced meal. I'm partial to the tortas...but it's all good. Eaten here a lot.

I've eaten here so many times and it's great for a fast meal or a quality group meal pickup. Always consistent, always yummie! Although I'm not Mexican, I suspect this is authentic. Today I picked up Nachos with cheese, iced tea, and a fried ice cream. Portions are large, shareable, and delicious! The staff here is always friendly and efficient.

People! Go to Taco King if you want the real deal for Mexican food. Their radio ads about 'Pedro" are somewhat annoying, but the the food is authentic, fresh, delicious and reasonably priced. The Menudo soup is good and spicy. The pollo burrito is my go-to, and really, anything on the menu is tasty and satisfying. They have about six... More
