“One of the best Mexican restaurant in Fairbanks, AK”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

It's not a fancy restaurant. It's not children friendly. I would not recommend as a get together or for any special event; but if you are just looking to eat (generous amount, plus all the condiment like sour cream, pico de gallo, salsa you want) this is the place.

“I love Taco King.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2012 via mobile

Now, even with my passion for Taco King, I know the overall restaurant is not the bees-knees. It has its faults. The food is okay. The ambiance all right. Great service though...

What I do love is an Alaskan option to other Americanized Mexican fast food joints. The food quality is the same, but I am not supporting Yum Brand foods and that is important to me.

“Okay food, just don't expect real Mexican food in Fairbanks”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2012

Coming from Southern California, we've had more than our share of Mexican and Mexican/American food. We were visiting Fairbanks, and thought we would try for a little Mexican flavor while here. Taco King offers some reasonably seasoned items, while others seem to come straight from a can without much effort put into them I think they need to do some work on what they're trying to achieve, and try to produce everything along the same quality lines. Out of four dishes, two were Taco Bell quality, Two were marginally above that. However, the. Service was quick, the people were friendly, and the order came out ninety percent correct. Guess well try something beside Mexican tomorrow!

“Authentic Mexican goodness in the far North”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2012

I crave Taco King when I can't get there at least once a month (it is 100 miles away). I have spent a lot of time in Baja Mexico and was thrilled when the taste was exported to Fairbanks. Our family has never had anything that wasn't delicious and over the years we have ordered nearly every item on the menu. The service is fast, the food is consistent, the salsa bar is clean and fresh and the restaurant is clean. Best of all, the prices are reasonable. If you like Mexican, don't miss a visit to Taco King!
