Yes, my good people. You can get amazing Mex in Alaska. We've been going to La Mex since my first visit to Anchorage many, many years ago. The one strange thing about going to a Mexican restaurant in Alaska is that they often serve some other cuisine along side the tacos, burritos, etc. Usually it's Italian, but at La Mex,... More

My wife and I have eaten here several times over the years. It has become one of our regular eating establishments when we're looking for Mexican food. Their prices are moderate, and their servings are quite adequate. Prices are quite reasonable. The service has always been prompt and friendly. They also have a very nice beer and wine selection. We... More

We had a dinner for two. The decor is standard table style Mexican, slightly dated. The overall appearance I would call mid-range family style. The food was unusually good. We had the carne asada and the poblanos nagatos. The latter was quite unique: a mild chile stuffed with ground pork, cinnamon, and almonds. It was an unusually sweet meat dish,... More

I've ate at La Med starting in the early 80's but it's been a while {10 plus years} since I've been there because of living over 3 hours away but spending lot's of time in Anchorage I have been able to eat at La Mex and it's still a great place!

Being from the Southwest, I missed authentic Mexican food, until La Mex. The food is the real thing. Not quite the Southwest flavor I am used to, but very close. The staff is very friendly and efficient. Much of the staff is Hispanic. Mexican decor. If you want good Mexican food, a large menu to choose from at a casual... More

I had never been to this location and was invited to a birthday lunch there, so was happy to check it out. I liked the decor and the many live hanging plants. They have a great lunch menu, with a few vegetarian options, and decent prices. I had the lunch combo with a spinach enchilada and the Poco Grilled Veggie... More

This has been my grandmothers favorite for over 30 years. She has helped decorate and has been part of the LaMex family. Today was her favorite servers last day. So we went to celebrate.

My family enjoyed their food and they offer a good kids menu that is reasonably priced and portioned. I was excited to see mole as I am generally a fan,... More
