On vacation and was recommended this restaurant as the best Mexican food in Fairbanks. I had the burrito and tamales and my husband had the chicken enchilada. The food is fresh and tasted good.

The food is excellent, and the wait staff were so quick and very good at what they do. Very attentive to our needs. We loved the decorations and atmosphere.

Three of us enjoyed our visit to Gallo's. The food was good, so was the beer. It was a little bit noisy, but I would return.

Being from TX, this was more like our version of TexMex food. It was good. They had a buffet but we ordered off the menu. Very good HOT salsa.

Fell in love the moment I walked in! It's bright and cheerful. The staff was smiling and welcoming. Our waiter was extremely attentive, making sure we had everything we needed. The food was exquisite and the portions large.

Decor looks like they hit the San Antonio bazaar on-sale aisle but it works. Music not too loud & couldn't hear sports games playing in the bar. Decided to try the Sunday Brunch ($14.95 per). Not a huge selection but the food is fresh. We...More

We won't be going back her for a long time. Another restaurant we've patronized since it opened. Food is ok but more expensive than a better Mexican restaurant in town. I don't like to hear screaming kids when I go out and pay good money...More
