You will not likely find anything closer to real Mexican food than at Taco King when it comes to Alaska. The staff are friendly and hard working, the restaurant is always clean, and they make great food.

This is the most authentic Mexican cuisine you can get in Fairbanks. The staff are very friendly and courteous (also fluently bilingual) portions are great, I'm normally stuffed if I don't take some leftovers home. This is a perfect sit down place for lunch.

The building was once a Burger King, converted years ago to a Mexican Restaurant. I am delighted because the food is great. Service is quick and prepared to order. Sauces and toppings from mild to spicy are provided on a self-serve counter. Right next to sauces is a container for roasted peppers, which will certainly satisfy your taste for spicy.... More
