Ate only once. Outdated decor. Smelly. Old stinky booths. Food was bland and tasteless. Atmosphere dark and dingy.

The food is good and reasonable. Not the quickest delivery to your table but good food and plenty of it.

This restaurant has beautiful Mexican decor. The food is authentic Mexico cooking with a wide variety of dishes to choose from. They also have American food such a hamburgers and salads. Comfortable atmosphere.

Main dishes were 3 star , but rice and beans were 1 star. Like out of a Walmart can. Server stated to us, meal was prepackaged and just heated ?... More

Stopped in for dinner on a Saturday night. There are at least two of these places, which serves both Mexican and Italian food (including pizza.) Kind of a weird combination, but it works. Good chips and sauce. I had a burrito that was very good, my friend had a chimichanga that he said was fine, though nothing special. A good... More

Crappy service. It took forever to get our foo then it was warm not hot. There was a large wedding party there before us, and when we left some of them still hadn't gotten fed.

There were six in our party--everyone had something different--no one complained and believe me they sure would. The food was very good, service was ok, had an earthquake while we were eating dinner. 6.2 pretty interesting!

Ate here May 14, 2015 for dinner. My husband had two beers and their chicken quesadilla. I had a Mountain Dew and lasagna. With 18% tip the meal came to just over $47. Service could have been a little more prompt, but we did not have to complain, just wait a little longer than we normally would have. My husband... More

Yesterday my wife and I stopped at this spot along the road between Anchorage and Homer. The server was wonderful...but overloaded. It took a while to get the food, but it was worth it. Hot and fresh and delicious. Big quantity and fair price. Check it out.

Stopped by for dinner. We had the enchiladas & chipotle chicken. The food was good and authentic and the hot salsa was perfect. The only thing I would improve would be to use white meat chicken & stop using the stop using the cheaper dark meat chicken in ALL the dishes. That would make a big difference. The interior is...
