“Some of the Best Mex in Alaska”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 September 2013

Really, at the end of long day fishing or kayaking, the cold beer and attentive service was just what we needed. Living in Fairbanks, you really don't expect exceptional Mexican in our region. However, the food here is actually quite good and the service was fantastic. Even the gal at the door was nice. Good value, great selection and full service bar that is away from the normal tourist crowd.

“Convenient, Good Service, and Good Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 August 2013 via mobile

We arrived at the Travelodge late in the evening and just wanted something quick. We ate in the lounge as the restaurant was getting ready to close, and they had a full menu. Service was Ok and the light fare we had (a cup of chili looked good, and was) hit the spot. The cold beer after a long day was nice too!

The next morning we had breakfast in the restaurant, nothing fancy, just bacon and eggs. I am fussy about eggs and they were done exactly as I asked, along with the bacon and toast. The young fellow who was our server was Johnny-on-the-spot, and very pleasant. We left after breakfast so can't speak to other meals, but I'd take a chance on them. Will be on my goof to go list.

“Average, but good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2013 via mobile

This restaurant is a great place to dine. But their breakfast buffet on Sundays is an absolute must try! There is nothing super exciting about this restaurant, but I would recommend it.

“Average Mexican food at a decent price”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2013 via mobile

The Mexican entrees are pretty standard; the prime rib over cooked and the chips served before the meal are a scary red and green color! The salsa is good and the chefs vegetables are excellent. The service is also excellent and the prices reasonable. The highlight was the margaritas. I stayed four nights and ate in the hotel restaurant each night having a different margarita flavor each night: pomegranate, mango, raspberry and sour apple!

“Walk down the road for something better”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2013

We stayed here for 4 nights. The breakfast was mediocre at best. Within 4 minutes there are better options for breakfast. The young man that served us reminded me of Matthew Mcconaughey and in all fairness to him appeared to be run off his feet the morning we were there but he would . The food was sufficient and kept as alive. The service could be better if the server would pay attention to detail. The bill also came out with an error, they were able to fix it but it took some time. They could do so much with this location. I wouldn't eat there again if I return. We did not try the supper menu.
