Tequila 61 was beautiful inside and out. Great flowers welcome you as you walk up and the interior is very well done. The staff was friendly and attentive. The food was delicious. We started out with the guacamole, very fresh, nice and chunky. For entrees...we had a Fettuccine and a Halibut dish. Both were absolutely delicious. Big portions, we could have shared an entree.More

While we enjoyed the ambiance, the food was just ok. We ordered tacos and there was plenty of meat in them, it just was not a flavor that we preferred. Our server, while efficient, as not friendly at all.

Our guide, a local Anchorage gal gave a good review of this place, but from the moment I walked in, I was ignored. No one greeted me upon entry and, because I saw no sign which said “Please wait to be seated,” I found a...nice table by the front window and sat down. For the next 15 minutes I sat there, watching the two servers scurry about catering to several other groups of four and six people. I got that they were busy. Then, when all that was done, the servers began clearing off another table, totally ignoring me, not even giving me a menu. I left in a huff, watching as a young couple who had just arrived was warmly greeted and taken to a seat. It was as if I were invisible to them! Such a shame!More

I went here for lunch and it was very good. Was able to get a free order of chips and salsa from a local coupon book. The salsa was a little spicy but not overwhelming. I would highly recommend the Chicken Al Pastor tacos. Rice...and beans were also good but $5 extra.More

Great food and delicious new tastes! Staff was excellent and helped with good recommendations. Halibut tacos and salmon tacos were both great, especially with the house made escabeche (also good on fresh oysters). Tasty salsa and nice drink selection too.

We dined with friends for a Monday Night dinner. Service was good and the drinks and food delivered promptly. One serve of Calamari shared between two was a great starter and cooked beautifully. Shrimp taco were ok, we had to ask for tortillas as it...didn’t come with them. Happy to visit again.More

Excellent service and delicious food. We were pleasantly surprised to be able to be seated immediately even without reservations. We chose this restaurant because of recommendations and walking proximity to our hotel. We split 2 dishes: Fried goat cheese balls with honey, pistachio and basil...which was amazing. My husband said he doesn't like goat cheese yet he devoured these tidbits. We also ordered Tacos Chicken Al Pastor. Again, so much flavor and tender meat. Excellent.More

Margarita was ok. Coconut shrimp tacos with jicama shell. Shell is a misnomer as one must eat this with a fork. Cannot pick up a flimsy piece of jicama. Also, could not taste any coconut and couldn't really see any either. Overall flavor was bland,...I had to add salt and rarely salt my food. Biggest complaint is the 1.5% service charge added to bill. Waitress could not explain it. Not in total disagreement, however staff should be prepared to sat where that 1.5% is going. We are traveling so doubt we'll ever return. However would not recommend as a great place to eat.More

Food had no taste. Rock fish tacos had a small sliver of fish, mostly breading. Chorizo Empanada was 99% filler, 1% chorizo. Queso was an oily glob of tasteless cheese.

We had excellent taco's. Halibut and pork. Service was great. The waitor Grant was excellent and engaging. Everything including the drinks came on time and he followed up on everything. The magueritas we're excellent. I've had Mexican food both here, California and the east coast....These tacos, rice and beans were great! Try this place out and ask for Greg when he working.

Walking distance from our hotel, so it was very convenient! Small menu, but lots of taco choices. We had the Halibut Tacos and they were very tasty. There are 3 small tacos to an order, and we added the beans and rice! Drinks were very...good!
