We love Mexican food but wasn't sure if we would find a satisfactory place in Fairbanks. We overheard someone say that Gallo's had good food. What a pleasant surprise! The food was delicious- and we eat Mexican food at least once a week in the lower forty-eight. Would definitely recommend!

I didn't expect such great Mexican food in Fairbanks, Alaska. Portions were large and the menu is huge. Couldn't finish everything on the plate -- loved it!

We ate at this restaurant several times in 2009 on our first visit to Fairbanks. Visited again a couple of times last week. Still has good food and good service. Sunday lunch had a good buffet. Would recommend.
