“As far from real Mexican food as Anchorage is from Mexico”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

My wife and I visited La Mex in May, 2013, The food and service is OK. This is more like an American imitation of Mexican food. Not the real thing. Any Mexican fast food place is the States serves the same food.

“Mexican with an Alaskan accent”
Reviewed June 21, 2013 via mobile

Great food, check out the new features menu and service was really good. Banana flambé was a well done treat, worth the calories. Halibut chantico was a nice Alaskan dinner. Sharon was our server and she was well versed in the menu and was helpful in making recommendations. See you soon.

“Great atmosphere. OK food”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

The place is fun and festive decor. The staff is nice but the food falls short. Not really really bad but just ok. Everything we ate was mexican food but it was just lacking.
