I get that it's in Alaska and a tourist town, but $14 for a regular burrito and $17 for a halibut burrito is way too much, but I was hungry after fishing all afternoon. This place is actually three restaurants all connected together; a pizza...More

Pathetic customer service. Ordered the $14 “black n blue” burrito. Guy behind the counter didn’t bother to ask any questions about what I ordered when he offered a “blue moon” burrito to our table and no one indicated they had ordered it. After another 5...More

We chose this restaurant because it was close to our hotel and had take out after a long cold day of fishing. I have no idea why this isn’t the highest rated restaurant in Seward! Best homemade salsa we’ve ever had, very authentic. Halibut tacos...More

Desperate for some spice I picked up a falafel burrito here with habanero sauce and purchased the 3 salsas with chips and guacamole too. It was just ok...disappointed that the spicy sauces weren’t spicy at all despite their warning!More

Thank you for the good review! We always make sure we warn people about the spiciness of our food, because not all of our customers are used to it. We are always ready to make it spicier for anyone who loves that! Hope to see...More

I would like to give them 4 1/2 stars but that's not an option. We stopped here on our bus trip with our tour group. Circumstances warranted a change to our schedule. We had 16 people total and after our expedition guide talked to them,...More

Being from AZ, I have had my share of excellent Mexican food, so I am always a little reluctant to try Mexican food in an area not really known for it BUT Railway was very tasty. The burritos and quesadillas are good sized and the...More

Enjoyed the blackened halibut burrito. Was good value for the money. The manager efficiently helped us order and split the tab. She was upbeat, friendly and professional.

Four of us had lunch here and found the food to be good but certainly not outstanding. The eating area is a little cramped but we all felt that for what we were served the food was overpriced
