“Mexican in Alaska”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012 via mobile

Awesome food. They have seafood options and traditional Mexican options. Friendly service. Seating can get cramped if it's crowded.

“One of my favorite places in Seward”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

This place is right across the street from the harbor and a little hard to find unless you're looking for it but I can vouch that it's a local favorite. The service can be a little unfriendly at times (I think sometimes the help gets a little overwhelmed in the summer- much friendlier in the shoulder season) but the food is good, fresh, and quick. Reasonable prices for Alaska. The black and blue burrito is my favorite. Great salsa and a nice break from fried food. Good atmosphere for hyper kids who can't sit still well.

“Over Priced and NOO fish!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

This place was recommended by a guy at the info center so we went and checked it out. I got a blackened halibut burrito. Sounds delicious right? Well sadly it was not. I think there was about two 1/4 inch strips of halibut in there mixed with beans and lettuce. The whole wrap did not match there were too many conflicting ingredients and then to add insult to injury ONE burrito was $15!! I would not have been upset if it was $6 but alas it was not. I think if you stick with the veggie burrito it would be alright. But still WAY over priced.

“Best loco secret”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012 via mobile

If you ask a local where they eat lunch or dinner most will tell you railway cantina. That's how I discovered this well hidden (not really) secret! Located right behind the chevron station these Guys n gals crank out tasty meals at a surprisingly fast rate. Favorite burritos would have to be either the black n blue chixs or the roasted chixs. And for quasidillas go… tie between the black n blue an the Jeffry's famous!
