I love menudo and Taco King on Spenard Road is perhaps the best in Anchorage for this uniquely Mexican delicacy.

I stopped by for lunch while in town in February 2014 attending a class. There were not a lot of people in the establishment and I order the menudo with flour tortillas ($7.95). The meal was delivered about ten minutes later.

The soup came in a huge bowl, piping hot and filled to the brim. Cilantro, onions, oregano, and a slice of lime accompanied the meal. It was delicious, maybe a little bit thin but there were plenty of tripe pieces in there and that made me happy. Three hot flour tortillas were wrapped in aluminum foil. I thoroughly enjoyed this, only wish we had a place to get menudo in Juneau.

Oh yes, the other food choices here are good but if you like menudo - you have to come here when in Anchorage!

Taco King is a fantastic place to eat authentic mexican food. The staff are warm and welcoming, and the food is fresh and delicious. I love the mexican tacos with corn tortillas and the salsa bar is great. The workers truly make for a pleasant dining experience, and generally speak English very well. Although, I must say that it is great to hear them speaking Spanish as well.
The prices are good, the food is great, and they have many locations to choose from. Definitely a must for people wanting an authentic taste of Mexico!

Outside of Krystals or White Castle burgers, I despise any type of fast food, period.

They say you can get consistant taste from one region to another from prepackaged materials, but what you end up with is chemically altered remnants of food and that disturbs me to no end.

However, Taco King is a different story.

You go into their shops and it looks at first glance to be a chain like setting, but then you get your food and your tongue calls your eye's a liar.

From the cilantro to the sauces, there is incredible taste, the staff could not be nicer and while it appears on the outside to be a steroidal Taco Hell duplicate, there is nothing farther from the truth.

This rotation into Anchorage, I called their delivery service and while it was a few minutes later than offered (due to icey roads and snow) the food I received was not just well made and smelled terrific, it was still hot as though just made.

Well done Taco King!

Delicious food and great service! The prices were reasonable and the place was clean. The staff are quick and the food still tastes the same from the first time we tried it! Very good. Will miss this when we leave Anchorage next month.

Great fresh fast food - love the hard shell tacos & refried beans. The salsa bar is a nice touch. Very friendly man made and served our lunch at location on Northern Lights Blvd.
