“So So Mexican Food in Wasilla, AK”

Hacienda Mexican Restaurant Incorporated
Ranked #92 of 130 Restaurants in Wasilla
Cuisines: Mexican
Restaurant details
Reviewed October 17, 2013

While headed back to Anchorage from Fairbanks, we decided to stop for dinner in Wasilla. Initially, we were at a fast food place but I really wanted a decent, satisfying meal prior to heading for the airport. I noticed the Hacienda Restaurant across the street and thought we'd give it a try. The food was NOT the type of Mexican food I'm accustomed to, but it was decent. The chips and salsa were ok, the enchiladas were fair. I didn't care too much for the crispy taco and the rice and beans were tolerable. The margarita could have used a bit more tequila especially for the size and price we paid. We did have good service though. On a scale of 1 - 10, I'd have to give Hacienda restaurant an overall score of 4.

The food isn't bad for a franchise restaurant. The bartender was warm and friendly, making our impromptu lunch stop enjoyable. They have a nice selection of tequilas.

After deciding on Mexican food, we (a couple and two friends) had only a few choices in Wasilla, and the Hacienda turned out to be pretty decent. Of course, it caters to Americans (not authentic), and it appears to be a standard chain. But we enjoyed it. They did have a fairly good variety on the menu, e.g., at least 6 different kinds of enchiladas. The drinks were reasonably good - nothing special.

We got what we came for, and our expectations, which were not too high, were met. If we wanted real Mexican we would not have looked in Wasilla.

The food is a rip-off of traditional Mexican dishes, Americanized to the core. You're paying for atmosphere, but if you want real enchiladas, it's better to find one of those little hole in the wall places that still know how to make a good salsa. Another big drawback; they do not know how to make a good tortilla in Alaska, and all the tortillas are bland white flour ones. Very disappointing. No extra tortillas, either, and they don't have an inkling as to Mexican breads.

Where to start. This is the 2nd worst mexican food I had in the US. The chicken fajitas had 3 pieces of chicken hidden by onions and green peppers. The other dishes chicken soup and shrimp with sauce was only slightly better. Had to beg for some real tasting mexican hot sauces. I think this place survives on beer and margarita sales.
